Musee D’Orsay

2

My first trip to Paris was in 2003 I had terrible bronchitis and it was Valentines Day. Nothing was going to stop me from seeing the city. I sat on the top of the double decker bus camera in hand and enjoyed every freezing moment. When I was in High School my French teacher did a lesson on French Impressionism. We had to identify all the artists by their brush strokes. I was so excited to see all the paintings I had studied in school. This was my first trip to the Musee D’Orsay and I was in love. I keep returning and discovering new parts to this beautiful museum. Its by far one of my top picks and a great rainy day activity. What’s your favorite museum in Paris?

Picasso Museum Paris Opening

0

Yesterday in Paris the Picasso museum finally reopened after 5 long years. It was also Picasso’s birthday which the perfect day to reopen the museum. I hadn’t planned to go yesterday as I assumed there would be huge crowds and long lines. While walking through the Marais I pretty much stumbled upon the museum. Yes there were crowds but the lady at the front told me the wait would be 90 minutes. I waited longer for the Cartier exhibit in February in the freezing rain. This didn’t seem so bad. Plus it was opening day and if people in the states can wait days for the new iPhone than this wait wasn’t so bad. It ended up being about an hour total and everything went smoothly and the space was well gorgeous. Here are a few shots I got but keep in mind it was terribly busy!

Paris is for Lovers

11

Its hard not to notice all the lovers in Paris. Young and old there are couples holding hands, kissing, or sitting close to one another. Its rare that I photograph people but when given the perfect opportunity I can’t pass it up. Recently a client asked for images of this exact type in black and white. So I decided to share with you a few images of Paris is for lovers.

I am not sure which is more tired, my computer, my camera or my feet… That being said just a few photos for today. Of course one for the cafe collection that I have started. Thank you all for your wonderful feedback!

Rain, Cafes, Black and White

4

To sum up this Monday it would be with rain, cafes, black and white. The day started out with a little sun and it seemed hopeful until the rain set in and stayed most of the day. I have been working on a cafe black and white series you will start to see in the first photo. A big thank you to Costume Cafe today for keeping me warm and dry. If you have the chance to check them out I highly recommend them!

Today starting out gloomy but the sun popped out later in the afternoon. I was lucky to finally take a rest at a cafe and enjoy the sunshine coming through the clouds. Here are a few photos from today. You will notice the red balloons are back!
