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?

It has been 6 years since I was laid off. I remember clearly that Summer sitting on a bench in the park and making plans for what was next. I wanted to be a travel photographer and one of my goals was to have a card in Papyrus. Last year that dream came true with my first card! I was lucky enough to work with Papyrus again to make a box set of 4 assorted images. While in Soho this past weekend I popped in to see if it had hit stores and I was so happy to see it sitting on the shelves. I will admit I started crying tears of joy. Dreams don’t work unless you do! xo

A visit to the Musee D’Orsay

The first Sunday of every month in Paris the Museums are free. I took this opportunity to pack in all my museums in one day. I did the Pompidou, the Louvre, and the D’Orsay. Yes, if you are wondering I am exhausted! I have been to the Louvre and the D’Orsay a few times but there are still some undiscovered places that I enjoyed exploring. Here are a few photographs from the D’Orsay

ImageI love how Sacre Couer is framed in the clock background.

Paris in Black and White a series

6

Paris, France in Black and White a series. Recently I did a collection of Black and White photographs for the new French restaurant in Chicago Brasserie by LM. The photographs are displayed all over the large restaurant. You can put this collection anywhere. I chose to put this in a hallway since I love filling empty white walls with photographs.

Mix and Match any black and white photographs to create your own collection
