Blink. Paris Moments

6

Paris is filled with charm. The fun part for me is catching the moments that happen for a blink and then they are gone. This morning it was not sunny and I had not planned to walk over the Seine. At the exact moment I did I caught this:

A man was walking over the bridge and watched me capture the moment. He asked to see the image on my camera to see if I was able to capture the beauty that was in front of us. Luckily I think I did ok 😉

I walked in circles today visiting Paris and showing a friend around to some of my favorite spots. I had my first savory crepe today. What took me so long? I popped by one of my favorite streets for a baguette and then I noticed this bike that had flowers on the back. It was next to a flower shop so I assumed it was part of the display. But quickly realized it was really someone’s bike. Picture perfect I had to grab it while I could. He was extremely patient and gave me a few extra snaps. He just couldn’t figure out why I was so fascinated with this image. For him its normal…

Nate Berkus – House Proud

0

A friend just saw some of my pieces on a clip of Nate Berkus. I had to share! The girl is from Chicago and purchased two of my canvas pieces to decorate her house.

classic Burano Italy

If you haven’t visited Burano, Italy you should check it out on your next visit to Venice, Italy.  Its a quick boat ride away from Venice and well worth it. The houses are all different colors and everyone takes pride in their house. The windows and doors are decorated to match the houses. I came across this house that had the laundry hanging outside and the bike parked out front. Classic Burano, Italy

Paris cafe in the Marais

I came across this cafe in the Marais. There are so many reasons why I love it. Inside there is a back room that is quaint with coffee table books and a huge bookshelf. You could spend hours in here! On the outside you can grab a chair outside and enjoy the people watching. Park your bike and stay a while!

Romantic streets of Europe

0

You never know what you are going to find on the streets of Europe. I always try to stay off the main path because its where where you find the classic scenes of European life. I happened to come across this street in Geneva Switzerland that had all different types of doorways and shutters. In front of each of the houses were different bikes. They are all so unique and filled with character. Here are two from the same street.

If you look in the window you can see the lace drawn curtain and the iron detail.

Undiscovered Berlin

I was lucky enough to have a tour of undiscovered Berlin from my a family member studying abroad in Berlin. Although it was extremely wet and snowy it didn’t stop me from exploring Berlin. The city is filled with amazing street art graffiti!

 

 

Discovering Geneva

A quick train ride away from Luassane is Geneva. A friend from high school is living here so we met for lunch. After lunch I set off to discover the back streets of Geneva. I loved this quaint street with bikes parked outside of each door. Although it wasn’t the door or the bike that caught my attention, its the green shutters.
