Oh Paris, Je t’aime!

So after a quick trip home to do some laundry and re-pack my bag I was off to Paris for a couple of days on my way to Marrakesh (more on that later!). Paris is a city that I’ve been lucky enough to visit several times, both for fun and work but this is the first time that I’ve turned my photographer’s eye on my favourite city.

This time not only did I bring four (FOUR!) cameras but my sister (and rather willing model) also came along for the ride. In a few short days we walked from one end of Paris to the other, and back again. I truly love that city.

In a stroke of great timing I am currently taking an online course by the awesome Xanthe Berkeley on creating time capsules with photo slideshows and video (you should check out her videos on her site, they are inspiring!). Following Xanthe’s tutorials I was able to put together this little love letter to Paris.

  7. Oh, my. Watching that gave me goosebumps, so, so lovely. And how can a hunk of a metal tower be so stinkin romatic? And your photos? fabulous, especially love the vintage looking shots. *sigh* maybe one day I’ll be able to visit for myself, until then, I so enjoyed tagging along with you.

      Thanks so much! I love the Eiffel Tower. Every time I see it it feels special. I hope you get to see it in person someday soon.
