I love Paris in the Springtime... Part II

We spent an amazing three days in Paris - it truly is such a magical place. I smiled the whole time - every moment was more wonderful than the last. The Louvre is a magnificent building and with each visit I marvel at the intricacy of the carvings.

The image below was taken in 2004 with 3200 film, there was graffiti on the base so I cropped the image - which I seldom do as I am very careful with framing as I shoot.

And this trip the graffiti had been removed. I tried to remember the old shot and duplicate it. I like the perspective of the '04 shot - she seems so huge. But I like the separation from the building of this one - tell me what you think...

On the left through the looking glass - I love the antique quality it creates. I can imagine this same scene a hundred years ago. Children push the little wooden boats from the edge of the pond with a stick and the wonderful, gentle sound of their laughter fills the air.

Sacre Coeur

I can't believe this violinist is still at Montmartre! In 2004 he was playing on the steps of Sacre Coeur. Perhaps he'd had enough of the crowds as this time he was in a tiny alley playing 'La Vie en Rose".

And more flowers...


  1. These are utterly amazing - so unusual and dreamy - I love it - I can't wait to see more - this really is a defining step in your journey as a photographer - fabulous work!

  2. How about it! - as I am agreeing with Sacha...

    Fantastic photographs.

    Really resonant, and dreamy is a great word to describe...

    They seem at once otherworldly - and yet completely natural and grounded.
