Bonjour Pari!

We have returned from Paris - city of lights, city of love, city of romance. Call it what you will, but you cannot deny that this city's soul is infectious. It's a place where time slows down and worries seem to disappear. To borrow a quote from Ms. Hepburn, "Paris isn't for changing planes, it's for changing your outlook! For throwing open the windows and letting in... letting in la vie en rose."

I now understand what Hemingway meant when he called Paris a moveable feast. I love this city. Every bit as much as I thought I would. And I know that it will stay with me, wherever I go for the rest of my life.

I quite literally took THOUSANDS of pictures. Chances are good that all the blog updates for the rest of the year may be of Paris. I could think of worse things. Besides, Paris is always a good idea!



  1. I really like the B&W! Makes it seem romantic!

  2. OMG! Love these photo's more than words can express. Can't wait to see the rest!!!

  3. I really like the second photo! It looks like a post card from the 1950's. I wouldn't be surprised to see the next photo you took had Cary Grant strolling by! The reflections in the water in the foreground really give this image a unique quality. I also really like the dark stormy sky. Usually bright blue sky days make for ho-hum photos. This dramatic sky gives the photo a nice bit of weight.

  4. I am crazy impressed with the lack of pedestrians in these photos! Were you lucky or was this post-processing? Love them all!
