My favorite thing to do in Paris

4

ok so the truth is its hard to narrow down one thing that is my absolute favorite. People always ask me what my favorite thing to do in Paris and why I return so often. I walk for hours everyday with no agenda, camera in hand. I will stop and try a new boulangerie or meet a friend for coffee which will sometimes lead me in a certain direction for the day. I walk left then right following my eye as Paris leads the way through tiny streets uncovering treasures one by one. If you walk down one street in the early morning it will look completely different at night. A store front will have opened chairs out on the sidewalk or maybe a window catches my eye. The most important is to be observant take in the sights and sounds of the city and let Paris be your guide. Some moments you have to capture quickly as they disappear with the blink of an eye. A bike outside the butcher, a stollen kiss at a cafe, graffiti, or the way the light hits the street. Some moments last longer but I try to take the picture as soon as I see the moment. If you plan to come back on your evening walk it may gone but that is the risk you take. Every walk I discover something new. The more I get lost the more I find my way.

Another Sunday Morning on Ile St Louis

1

I really love spending time on Ile St Louis. During different times of the day the island is changing. This morning I met my friend Melissa for breakfast at St Regis. I arrived a little before her so I took the opportunity to capture the morning light. After a fun chat over pancakes I was off to the Bastille market…

Behind the Paris doors

On my walk today I found one of the beautiful wood Parisian doors open. I thought I would share the view inside as I seem to always post the outside colorful doors. The doors aren’t usually open like this so I took a few quick shots and went on my way

An Afternoon at the Louvre

On my list earlier this year was to explore the Napolean III apartments at the Louvre. You could spend days exploring the Louvre so its best to come with an action plan and pick a few parts you want to see.

A little more door envy. I am looking forward to strolling the streets of St Germain next week!

The doors in Paris are really stunning. It could be the coldest winter day and the colors of the doors still pop on the grayest of days. Here’s a few of my favorites:
