Snapshots from my Favorite City







Paris has beautiful skies to go with it's beautiful buildings and statues. I took these behind the Cathedral of Notre Dame, except for the top photo. The top one was taken from one of the many wonderful bridges in Paris. I can't wait to go back later this year.

  3. All the French towers have unique delicacy.
    They match a blue sky well.

  6. I love Paris, too!! Paris and Prague are my two favorite cities...in addition, they are sooo photogenic!

    So, James, sneaky you! I figured that you Googled that Jilska door and saw the street view...for a second you had me going!! Bravo...good detective work!!

    BTW, on your March 1 post...that theatre...the Estate Theatre is also known as Stavovske Divadlo (and I posted the back/service door on my blog already)...funny to see your picture because even though it is in B/W, it looks old...until you see the shops and can realise that the picture was recent!

    Again, FABULOUS pictures!!! Are you a professional photographer or just a very talented amateur? And how do you manage to get over to this side of the pond so often? And if you do, when are you just going to make the leap and move over?

    Have a great day! Thanks for sharing your pictures!

  13. Oh I love the "post - it" publishing. How do you do that, I guess it's a photoshop-thing... It really adds the little something to the shots.

    I guess you like to travel too. I love Nôtre Dame, and I love Paris. I like very much the shots of the church.

    I think the last is my favorite - wonderful colors!
