The Romance of Paris

Paris is such a beautiful city, with so many places to stroll through enchanted streets in the evenings with someone you love. This lovely road at in the Montmartre neighborhood is just such a place. So, if you ever do get a chance, do take the hand of someone you love and walk along those cobblestone streets and stop somewhere for a nice bottle of red.



Did I mention that it’s just about impossible to shoot a bad photograph in Paris?  Well, it is!  Especially at night.  I’d have to say that shooting after the sun went down over the City of Lights had to be my favorite time of the day to shoot.  Such great colors on the buildings, the sidewalks, streets and in the sky.  Quite hard to describe in words, so a picture will have to do.

I know a place where we can go

Usually you’ll never know what you’ll find while exploring the cool cobble-stoned back alleys of Paris, but I guarantee you’ll come across lots of great little Crêperies like this one.  My favorite kind of crêpe always includes nutella in it somewhere, and maybe some tasty cookie or biscotti crumbs mixed into that crêpe for good measure.  By the way, one of the reasons I like this particular picture is because my family (my two daughters and my wife) are in it, together with some friends.  As usual, they were waiting patiently for me to finish my shot of this little slice of Paris.  Now where’s that nutella?


Scoping out the city

My wife is always giving me a hard time about all the pictures I’ve taken during various vacation trips, that I have yet to process and print for our family albums, and rightly so.  I’ll be the first to admit that I am a HUGE procrastinator when it comes to post-processing.  I am trying to get better at catching up on the backlog, especially of pictures from our family vacations.  Here is one from our trip last fall to Paris.  I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again I LOVE PARIS!  What a beautiful city!  Anyway, here is a snapshot of the Arc de Triomphe on the Place Charles de Gaulle.  And my far better half,  I promise to do my best to get those vacation photos into our albums!

Conquering the pyramids

Here is another shot from our visit to Paris.  What a great city.  Suppose I could have cloned out the crane on the right, but ended up leaving it in.  Maybe I can reprocess it someday when I have a little extra time.
