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.

As the boats go by…

Yesterday I had lunch at Embarcadero in San Francisco. The inside food hall was filled with different restaurants, coffee, pastries, and cheeses. We grabbed lunch and sat outside. The scenery was beautiful. We had a view of the bay bridge and watched the sailboats go by…

The Red Umbrella – Le Parapluie Rouge

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!!

 

Paris in love

I can’t think of a more Romantic city than Paris, France. If I could spend Valentine’s Day in Paris here are a few ideas!

Stop by many of the street vendors in Paris throughout the week or weekend and you will find flowers of all types you can buy them individually or by the dozen.

A an early morning walk by the Louvre is one of my favorite places. Pack a picnic and a blanket and park yourself on the grass. Its a great people watching place.

The Romantic streets of Montmartre. A great place for an afternoon stroll

“Love Park” found in Montmartre this huge mural says I love you in over 300 different languages.

Paris in the rain. A magical romance!

Stop in a cafe for dinner and people watching. This one has fantastic seafood

Finish the romantic day with a climb up to the top of the eiffel tower. The sunset from the top is breathtaking! You can even share a toast to the one you love with a glass of bubbly at the top.

The colors in Venice are absolutely stunning! If you look at the city from close up like yesterdays post or far away like this photograph, there is no doubt it is one of the most amazing cities!!

Paris Romance in the Rain

0

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!!

You can spend days in Venice soaking up the views from the Rialto or San Marco but the beauty is in the detail.
