We’re continuing on in my year-end series of Top Ten posts! Today was particularly difficult because I had to narrow down allll of this year’s Paris travels into ten photos. Once I’m through this series I’ll have more Paris posts coming your way to show my other favorites that I couldn’t fit in here 😉
So enjoy these memories of my favorite ville!
Catédrale Notre-Dame de Paris
I was lucky enough to get to capture this image of Notre Dame’s stunning exterior before the tragic fire. This church is breathtakingly beautiful and will always have a special place in my heart and in this city.
This neighborhood is one of my favorites and this corner is a bustling one. I was walking around with some black and white film waiting for opportunities that were fitting for black and white processing and this certainly fit the bill!
I have never participated in the lock and key tradition of many on Paris’s bridges but they sure do make for fun photos, especially on a bright sunny day.
Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel
This area of town is always crazy busy and full of tourists but if you look up it’s easy to forget about the crowds and get lost in the beauty.
Ok this one is technicallyyyy not in Paris proper. This is in a suburb called Saint-Germain-en-Laye. But I just love these colored shutters so much.
Another great opportunity for black and white film!
I caught this one peeking out of a window on a rainy day. The blue in the umbrella was the perfect pop of color for the grey dreary day.
I love snagging photos of doors in Paris and it certainly isn’t rare for them to be beautifully colored. But this was a new color I hadn’t yet seen here – this delightful mint green. I also love that it wasn’t just the door that was colored. The green extended across the building!
Jardin du Palais Royal
One of my favorite things to do in Paris is take a book to a park or garden, find an empty green chair, and enjoy the afternoon outdoors. To me, these chairs just scream Paris.
Everything I love in one photo: Paris, sweets, the color pink, and dogs!
