Dear Paris, thank you for being absolutely wonderful this time around. It was very, very much appreciated and I can’t wait to see you again soon.
I’m not saying this to sound arrogant, but on the plane ride home from Paris I realized that it was my fifth time visiting the city. I’ve been there five times and that just blows my mind. People wait their entire lives to catch a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower and I’ve climbed it twice. It’s actually kinda cool to look at my pictures over the years and see how eerily similar some are, and to see how they’ve drastically changed the more I learn about photography.
I took the photos below strictly in manual mode. This was my first time not using “auto” as a crutch; it was very daunting, but I think I’m happy with the outcome, especially the night shots without a tripod. I took a couple hundred pictures, but I wish I took more. The thing with taking them in manual means I spend about a bajillion minutes longer trying to get the settings right. It’s funny how you think about the pictures or angles you wish you took after the fact.
Enough of my blabbering…here are pictures from Paris. I still need to go through the Eiffel Tower photos, so those will be have their own separate post later.
|This street was right around the corner from our hotel. Lots of shops and bakeries!|
|Our room at Hotel de l’avre. Loved it!|
group was singing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody a capella, but they had to
keep looking at the paper to get the English words right. I loved how
much fun they were having!
|I had to take a back and front shot. It’s pretty much mandatory when you’re a tourist. Also, the statue on the right is what my husband looks like every time I stop to take a picture.|
