OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
If you live in Paris or have visited Paris, you’ve got them: café photos. And if you got ’em, we want ’em. Send us a Paris café photo, and if we like it, we may run it in our weekly column, Café Photo of the Week—and give you credit in the post! Details below:
HOW TO SUBMIT

(Oh, come on, you give away much more to social media sites every day.)
