Paris in 20 Photos

After I did my last post on New York City, I got the idea for a new blog series. Although I’m not exactly traveling very much at the moment, rather writing about travel, I still have a bunch of stuff – photos that is – to share. You may have noticed that there haven’t been as many blog posts as there used to be; that’s because I’m now putting the finishing touches on my first actual book. I’m super-excited about that.

First things first though.

A new blog series.

This new photography series will feature eight great cities from around the world. As I said, I’ve already covered New York City, the ‘City that Never Sleeps’. Now, let’s continue with the most-visited city on the planet: Paris, the ‘City of Light’.

It’s been a few years since Caroline and I spent four days in Paris, but the memories are still fresh. And there still are some photos that I haven’t shared yet…

  • Man, I love this idea for a series. I occasionally do photo posts, but I’m jealous of the way in which you titled and formatted it. Boo! Haha.

    Also love seeing pictures of a former home. You’re preventing me missing it by posting photos that are mostly overcast or rainy though. Hate that weather. =P
