Musée d'Orsay. I was able to photograph anything I liked in my 2007 visit.

You have been very lucky Advaitin, and I'm pleased for you, because now it's completely forbidden to take any photo at Orsay.
I understand that flash can be forbidden in order to preserve the paintings, but why to prohibit photos without flash ?? vmad

85mm. I forgot the metadata input.

Electronic flash was no great problem as the duration and intensity was too brief to do much or any damage. It was a disturbance to others and it did allow for taking better photos (if done correctly). Museums banned it so they could more easily sell their own color postcards and prints. They also banned tripods for the same reason. Oh, they claimed they were hazards for other guests, but no more so than the amateur painters they allow in. It was to keep photographers from getting too good an image.
It took a while for them to realize that image-stabilized digital cameras with auto ISO and auto exposure could allow for as good a result as with tripod or or flash. No matter what the "official" reason, It's all about controlling the use of their images for resale.

It's exactly the reason. I agree with you.

As you said, c'est la vie ... ;-)a

It's a good idea !
I hope you will have a nice weather during this trip to well enjoy some visits in Paris.

However, I'm a bit concerned by the date you refer to.
In my opinion, if we speak about "salon de la photo" in Porte de Versailles exhibition centre, it doesn't begin 15 November but 5 November, and more precisely from 5 to 9 November.

I give you the link I have found about this: http://en.lesalondelap​hoto.com/ (external link)

I have made my reservations for this:

It's unfortunate, I could have expanded my visit had I known sooner. I get the French magazine, Photo, which had an article on the Grande Palais exhibition, but did not alert me to the other event.

Ah yes, I understand why the dates didn't match !

Don't be disappointed Advaitin, the exhibition in Grand Palais must be more interesting that the one in Porte de Versailles.
You will certainly see in Grand Palais a great exhibition of wonderful photos taken by the best international photographers, it's an artistic exhibition.
The one of Porte de Versailles is much more focused on the gears. It's a show where all the manufacturers display their new cameras, lenses and so one.

Mine too! If I could afford it, I'd get a little apartment on the left bank and spend time roaming the city at my leisure.

Oh don't, John. That would be personal heaven to me.

And I just finished looking at the photos my mother took on her most recent trip there, last week....
Being on the other side of the planet since 2004 really pulls at the "Europe is so beautiful" heart-strings.
-?

But here's another (unusual unless you know your Paris restaurants!) shot, from our last chance in 2013.

Cheers for now,

Simon

In that case, it might be a good thing that I missed it. To see is to buy all too often, in my case. Here are two images from a 2009 trip.
