Au Revoir Paris!

My last day in Paris and I wanted to send a quick update with more images than words.

It’s been a great trip with a perfect mix of family, fun, history and photography.

I am excited about doing further work on the photos from this trip. My photographs are really just a starting point. Almost like the sketch a painter makes. I have ideas and visions for what I want my final pieces to look like and I can't wait to get started on them.

So with that, here are a few more "before" shots from my trip:

This is another one of the photographs I took in Luxembourg Garden early on a drizzly morning.

The next two images were taken on my birthday. It was the perfect day! My family just followed me around while I took photographs. Yes - I am spoiled!

The first one here is a street called Rue Suger, not far where we were staying.

I found a vintage postcard of the gates of Parc Monceau on one of the first days I was in Paris. I declared that I wanted to go there before I left - so my wish was granted on my birthday. I was delighted to see what was behind the gates!

Knowing that I will be working on these images from Paris in the coming months means I will be living with the memories of this adventure for a long time and I look forward to sharing them with all of you.


  1. I am loving seeing Paris through the lens of a real and great photographer. Thank you.

  2. I can't wait to see the hand colored finished product.

  3. Your photographs in their original state are wonderful. Looking forward to seeing the magic you add to them.

    Have a safe trip home.

    Scent-sationally yours,

  4. Thanks everyone!

    I am happy to be home and can't wait to start working on these images!

  5. Ahhh, Paris. I'm glad it was such a wonderful trip. Looks like it was very creatively inspiring for you, too.

    Happy birthday, by the way! (Joyeux anniversaire!)
