Post Paris

It's been over a week since returning from Paris. Of course the airborne sickness set in about 3 days ago. Struggling with this cold. Must have been breathing too many germs. The bad thing about going away is the catch up we all experience when returning. It's been really busy here at the studio. Can't believe I'm still photographing for the holiday. Today I'll be outside with a hs senior photographing in the snow. Sure hope the clouds move in. Nothing like trying to photograph in the glaring sun bouncing off the pure white snow. Praying for some overcastness. I'll be posting some images from this session tomorrow. Tonight I'm going to hear my husband's band "Ron Trombly and Eastern Standard Time" at Johnny's Pour House in Flushing.
Can't wait to just relax and listen to some good live music. deb

The Red Umbrella

A "Painted Memory" of Nicole with a red umbrella on a street in Paris. What an experience Paris was. I had the time of my life photographing this beautiful city. I'll be publishing more images as soon as Nicole and her mom get a chance to see them. I just can't thank then enough for this experience.

Another Day in Paris

Another day of walking Paris. Wow, what an experience. I can't even describe the architecture. The most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. The cobblestone streets. I'm telling you one thing, a whole lot of people live and visit here. The streets are packed even at this time of year. The Christmas Market is all set up with vendors and food, lots and lots of food. Beautiful lights everywhere you look. I am so glad I came. I'm soaking it all up. We started out around 10 this morning and didn't get back to the hotel until after 9. I am definitely adding learning French to my bucket list. It's not easy being in a country when you don't have a clue about the language. Thank goodness for Sandy. We are going Chocolate shopping tomorrow among other things. We leave Tuesday afternoon, so tomorrow's the last day to experience this beautiful city. Check out this batch of images and let me know what you think.

Today in Paris

I'll be off documenting more beautiful sites here in Paris today. Feeling much better now. My legs and feet have stopped throbbing. Ready for a new day. More images to come.

A little bit of Paris

As promised, I'm blogging Paris. What a beautiful place. My flight was thankfully uneventful. Somewhat worried about the flight home, but what choice do I have.
Today I walked along with Sandy from France Journeys (, her daughter Nicole and our sweet guide Jodi just about all of Paris. What a wonderful experience even though I'm paying for it now with sore muscles and throbbing feet, I'll most likely do it all over again tomorrow, I expected beautiful but I had no idea. This place rocks! The people here, contrary to popular belief, are very nice. The Metro is quite an experience. People packed in like sardines. I really don't like traveling under ground. Gives me the creeps.
I hope you enjoy a small sample of where we were today. I'm so tired, I will continue this tomorrow. d
