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

The heart of the street…

Street photography where street photography took its first steps… Only because there are a bazillion images of Paris, it makes street photography all the more unusual. . . . It is the reason why street photography is so extraordinary. There are 11 million photographs tagged “Paris” on Flickr. And those are 11 million views of

How now, flights, too…

Just flying back through the Boston-Logan on the way home. This long journey has come to an end for a moment or two. In just a few days I will be back out on the road, but I’m in need of rest and a recharge. Oh, my frayed and weary mind, my shoes need a

In transit on the streets…

I told someone in a conversation not long ago, “I just didn’t want to pay for a place to stay for a night so I stayed on the streets.” It completely flabbergasted them. “On the streets? Like, all night?” they were dubious. Absolutely. What’s wrong with that? I mean, I’ve stayed up all night talking

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,

…and for the second time in about 10 days, I am in Paris. Its always odd when things like this happen. Last year I was in New York City two weekends in a row. But Paris? It is still quite weird to think I’m getting used to Paris. It gives me a chance to be

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
