i went to paris

November 22, 2010















(we had an amazing dinner at benjamin & mercedes’ beautiful apartment just outside of paris. it was a highlight.)

. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

i went to paris for a few days, to get away from work, to find inspiration, to eat well, to wander aimlessly.

i did all of that, and more.

this week i hope to tell you more about it, and share photos in color and black + white.

i hope you’ve been well.

    Ah tiens! Les Invalides! I was just there this past week-end! Or more like I walked by a few times… rather than actually going inside the Invalides (had enough of that as a child).

    The Rodin Museum is one of my favorite places in the world – it’s so peaceful there. Thanks for a welcome reminder on a Monday morning. Your photos are gorgeous.

    I must say, looking at your photos always transports me to this tranquil place where you realize how beautiful the world is in all its simplicity and untouched states. You are truly a brilliant talent, and I just wanted to stop and say…major kudos to you.

    Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

    Great photos. There is nowhere like Paris.

    I’ve been shooting with a DSLR camera for over two years, enjoying my Holga and Diana from time to time but your photographs have inspired me to buy a pentax k1000 (with the 50mm 1.7 lens). Tomorrow I’m going to develop my first film. I’m excited and wanted to thank you for the inspiration:).
