The day the Sky set Paris on fire began like any other. And just like any other, most people forgot about the Sky.

Four views of Le Tour Eiffel and an intimate moment…

I thoroughly enjoy being able to spend time in a place. Especially, to photograph. To work the scene, to study the situation and the way the light falls, to watch for patterns in movement… At a place like the Eiffel Tower, nobody is going to do something that a million others have not done. But

Travel afoot…

I would not advise it for something to do on a regular basis, but the past 36 hours have been “one of those days” that we – as sojourners – won’t forget very soon. To make a long story short, though, we started the night in Paris’ Gare du Nord train station… because there were

Everyday Paris…

Everyday Paris…

To claim to know a city well, you must know the public transportation. Sure, I’m “comfortable” with the metro… but I hate bus systems in any city anywhere in the world. I think Athens scared me on that one. Oh, except Athens, Georgia… its bus system is great. Anywhere else… not so much… The metro,

Catch-up to get ahead…

Pardon an indolent shot today, but this has been a day of catch-up and get-ahead. And if by “indolent” I mean that I was being so lazy that I walked next door and took a single photo? Why, yes, that is exactly what I mean… But, I guess it is time to reveal where the

To close this chapter…

Sorry, a little artsy, I know. But the Eiffel Tower at night really is kinda cool… I had lunch with my friends at the Baroque Room at the Musee D’Orsay today. As we were standing to leave and part ways for likely the last time for the summer, Dr.Hopper – the man who has made

Back to familiar…

In these travels, I love to visit new places constantly – like I have been for the past few weeks. But sometimes its good to go back to familiar ground. It feels so weird to say it, but Paris is familiar ground… For all intents and purposes, the formal trip that I was assigned has

** ORIGINAL POST: 29 May 2008 ** Not often you go to a place that overwhelms you – if you stay inside the States, that is. Jerusalem was overwhelming. It was unimaginably cool. Many have asked me now, “What was your favorite place in the 4 months abroad?” I’ll say Israel… or more specifically: Jerusalem.
