Paris with splashes of colour

I visited Paris in 2007 armed with my first ever digital SLR. There’s always a great sense of expectation about Paris. The city of lovers, art and food. The city is almost blasé in the way it meets and exceeds these expectations. It’s as if it’s not even trying. But then it doesn’t need to.

I’m really looking forward to my next opportunity to visit. To pretend to be a Parisienne, for a short time at least. I could sit in a cafe in Montparnasse, trying to work out what exactly that certain je ne sais quoi might be. But then I’d be missing the point…

  1. Beautifully done! The clouds from the Eiffel Tower were perfectly fluffy that day. My favorites are the one of the old men playing Bocce Ball and the bikes in a row. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful pics, can’t wait to make it here someday! Is that the police rollerblading! Love it LOL

  3. And a lesson for all photographers that you teach so well – each of these photographs seemed (appeared) to be taken in the best light conditions! Great B&W series. B&W are my favorites.
    All the best and hope to see more of these as well

  4. Wow, Morgan, these photos are so beautiful they want me to go to Paris right this very second. Can you believe that I’ve never been? You make it seem so magical. I’d love to see you go again, since these were taken five years ago, your perspective now would be a great comparison of growth in your photography! That would be awesome!

    Big hugs
    xoxo

  5. Wow these are awesome! I’d love to go back now that I have a DSLR on hand, I’ll just have to wait a few more years….
