It's been a week since attackers unleashed chaos on Paris, killing at least 130 people and wounding hundreds more, but the city still feels as vibrant and passionate as ever.

Photos collected from around the city in the days following the attacks show mourners huddled together in solidarity as well as countless memorials for the deceased. The images also show a glimpse of life returning to normal: scenes of friends dining together at cafes, tourists visiting popular attractions, travelers heading home on the train.
