We'll be in Rouen/Paris in December, so if you have ideas about things to photograph (silly me!) please feel free to share- we will be in Paris for the second time, and are looking for something outside of the usual tourist fare to shoot (not that anything in Paris will be less than spectacular in December)- we're hoping for snow!

For 'real Paris' try the La Villette area to the northeast of Gare de l'Est. Metro to Jaures or Stalingrad. Similarly there's the Clignancourt area just the other side of Gare du Nord. Depending on how mobile you are it's a reasonable walk between the two.

You'll probably be going to the Ile de la Cité, but try the Ile Saint Louis as well. It's a very smart residential area, plus you get what is probably my favourite view of Notre Dame. At the western tip of Ile de la Cité there is the memorial to the deportees of WWII, just near the Pont Saint Louis.

Another 'real Paris' area is around the Cambronne Metro station. It's just to the south west of l'Ecole Militaire at the opposite end of the Champ de Mars from the Eiffel Tower.

On the Seine there is a boat service, Batobus, where you can get an all day ticket and get on and off at various points:
