Pops of Red in Paris

10

Even on the grayest days in Paris you can find pops of color around the city. One of my favorites and most popular in Paris is the color red. Perhaps I am still in the Valentine’s Day mood but here you go!

Back to Paris in February

9

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.

Red Balloon series – a few missing photos

4

I had a chance to go back through some of my photos from October and found some missing red balloon photos from the series. The Eiffel tower carousel did not look how I thought it would so I didn’t shoot it much. Going back through I had second thoughts.

Red Balloons in Paris – Part 1

5

The story behind the red balloons. My first trip to Paris this year I had the idea of putting red balloons around the city of Paris and photographing them. I was busy with visitors towards the last month of my visit and never got to do it. As I prepared for my last minute visit this October it was on my list!

Finding red balloons is not easy or inexpensive in Paris. I brought my own balloons from the States but needed to find helium. After a long walk through the 13th arrondisement with my friend Olivier I started to walk home towards the Seine. On my walk I stumbled upon a toy shop with balloons! My thought was now or never… so I purchased a few balloons. I was beaming with my red balloons walking through the city of Paris. Just a few feet out of the shop and one balloon goes POP! Then my decision to ride the metro or bus home was out the window. I was going to walk… all 7 kilometers.

On my way home the sun started to set. I thought first stop would be one of my favorite Paris bridges. Pont des Arts…

After asking them to leave they attacked the balloons with their pens and popped one before running off!

There were a few places around the city that we didn’t get to so we decided to do it again! I will save those images for another post.

Red Balloons in Paris – The Series

9

I have wanted to do a series of red balloons around Paris for sometime but just never got around doing it until today. Yesterday I posted the beginning of the series as I walked home with the balloons. The shops don’t open until 10:30 AM here and I wanted to do an early morning shot with the balloons. We started with 5 and it was very funny how they popped one by one throughout the day. This was such a fun series to shoot and will take a little while to edit along with the other photographs from Paris. I hope you enjoy one of my favorites!
