Living about 30 minutes from Paris, I usually find myself visiting at least once a month, if not maybe more. But most of the time, I’m usually rushing past some of the most famous landmarks to get to where I’m going, whether it be a dental appointment, dinner with friends, shopping, or catching the latest American movie in English. (Side note: All American movies are dubbed into French and unless you’re in a major city, you can’t see the latest releases in English.) Although Paris is one of the most photogenic cities in the world, I’m usually just taking a quick iPhone photo here and there while I’m on my way to something else.
I found an opportunity to dust off my DSLR when I had friends visit this past May. They wanted to visit the Louvre, and while I love the Louvre, I preferred to take some time alone during their visit to explore the surrounding areas and photograph what I see. The results are as follows:
I really enjoyed this afternoon of taking photos in Paris. I would have taken even more, but it was at this point that the clouds opened and the rain started pouring down. But only living 30 minutes away, there’s always next time.
Excellent commentary, photos, & travel tips!
Thanks Rockie! 😘
Stunning photos. I wish I had seen the umbrella exhibit in person – you caught it at just the right time!
Thanks! Yes, I was fortunate to catch it right before it left. I think they have other exhibitions in Europe, and now that you’re here, it’ll be a lot easier to check out. 😊
