There are many photos to post from Valentines Day in Paris. But since its late I will leave you with this one. Walking home on the Seine it was a very “Midnight in Paris” moment for me.

I am happy to say my apartment and flight have been booked for early February. I am looking forward to being back in my favorite city and exploring a whole new area. I will be staying in the 5th arrondisement, far from Montmartre. I will still be back in my old neighborhood visiting friends and my favorite boulangeries. I am excited to get lost in Paris and discover new places.
I really loved the red balloon series that I have posted here often and would love to continue it. I was able to cover a lot of ground but still want to place the red balloons around the city. If there are any suggestions I would love to hear them! If I choose your location I will send you a signed print from Paris.
The Red Umbrella or in French Le Parapluie Rouge. One of my favorite images from my most recent trip to Paris was an early morning in the Marais. It was raining and the cobblestone streets were wet and shiny from the rain and when I looked up the streets were empty except for a couple walking in front of me with an umbrella. The umbrella was rainbow and really popped in the photograph because everything else was very soft. One of my favorite customers asked if the umbrella could be red. With a little help from a friend, the umbrella turned red! Voila!!
There is something about rain in Paris that just makes everything so much better. If you have experienced a rain in Paris you know what I am talking about. I was having a conversation with someone on this cold rainy weekend in Paris and the woman said its just so Parisian for it to rain. I woke up early in the morning and left to walk the streets without an umbrella. I was wondering the streets in the Marais when it started to rain. I did my best to keep my camera dry but I didn’t want to go inside. I found this couple walking arm and arm with an umbrella. I pulled my camera up as they kissed. I missed the kiss by just a second but you can still feel the romance in the air. I love the Paris street they are walking down, the bike on the right, the love in the air, and the rain. Its just so Paris!!
