Photo sketchbook: Paris, pt. 2

October 31, 2011

. . . . . . . . . . .

It was my last trip to Paris before I move back to the U.S. The sun was shining and the light was pretty incredible. And as we wandered around the city, I was reminded again how lucky I have been these past 2 years.

Thank you to Xavier & Jolayne especially, who have been my hosts, my tour guides, my eating & drinking companions, and my good friends.

    These are so beautiful. Love the light. And your placement of focus is always so visually interesting.

    I have been “following” you for a bit – quietly. It is always a delight when your post lands in inbox and I wonder what gifts the post will bring. I want to take better photos – just ’cause and don’t have a feel. You evoke time and place and emotion. It’s just a pleasure.

    I miss Paris. I miss croissants. I miss those windows. I miss those green chairs in the parks. If I could, I would marry Paris: I would be a happy happy bride.

    beautiful photos – as always! i’ve followed your blog for a while now, and i really enjoy every single post, especially your travel and music posts, and your list of links have expanded my internet reads a lot! so keep up the good work! one thing i’d like to know more about is you – the man behind this wonderful blog. i feel that your photography is very personal indeed, but i guess i’m just curious about you as a person. i think a lot of your devoted readers would really like a small …introduction, maybe? i have such a good impression of both you and your crowd / friends. perhaps it’s just me being used to the intimate side of the internet – and i do not at all question your choice of not being so personal and intimate, as a matter of fact i think it is a strenght to your blog and work – but i hope you’d like to share a bit about who you are?

    Your photos of Paris are so beautiful Brian. I love the first photo at the cafe with the croissant, so very… French! The black and white photos in your next post are amazing as well. You see the world so beautifully.

    thank you so much for sharing Paris with us. i’ve seen things through your photos that I will probably never see with my own eyes. :-)

    These pictures are all so beautiful. It makes me realize how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful and photogenic city. I love all the coffee shots… classic!
