Greetings from L’Ile-de-France! When I booked my flight to Tenerife, I happily found myself with a 24-hour layover in the City of Light. Rather than dining duty-free for a night and sleeping slumped over an armrest in the airport, I thought I should drop in on my favorite ex-pat Parisians.
A few years ago my aunt and uncle and their 2 little girls moved to Pareeee for my uncle’s job. Sad as I was to see them leave Texas, I actually wasn’t sad at all. And wonderful niece that I am, I have made myself available to visit them at every opportunity since their re-location. I know: I’m so nice.
Anyhow, today I took a solo walk about town with my camera to keep myself from succumbing to jet lag. An hour stroll turned into a 3-hour photo safari. The great thing about Paris is that you can’t walk 10 meters without tripping over some monument that’s old as Adam, but Lord knows I don’t need another picture of the Champs Elysees or le Tour Eiffel taking up space on my hard drive.
I was desperate to find something new to photograph: so how about photographs of other people photographing Paris?
This turned out to be incredibly fun, people are silly.
Now I’m off to re-pack my bags and get ready for the next flight…I’m sure I’ll have more photos to share from Tenerife.
I leave you with my favorite photo (not of tourists this time) from today.
