Paris in pictures.



Bonjour! Je voudrais un pain au chocolat. Ou est la piscine? Ooh la la!

I am back from Paris, and as you can see from the paragraph above, my knowledge of the beautiful French language remains extremely slim. I do voudrais un pain au chocolat, though. Like, always.


I had such a lovely time. We had a great, conveniently located apartment (see above), and armed with two lovely ladies, an array of floral dresses, some very comfy boots and my trusty Nikon D40, I managed to take in a hell of a lot in three and a half days, as the whopping 1700 photos I came back with can attest to! I'll be posting my highlights over the next couple of weeks, which I hope doesn't get terribly boring. It really is a beautiful city, and there was so much to photograph, I couldn't control myself.


My favourite part of the trip, apart from the company, the amazing food and all the gorgeous sights was probably the sheer Frenchness of it all. I saw many Parisians wearing stripy t-shirts, berets, and yes - even wandering down the street eating baguettes. Sadly, though, none of them were wearing garlands of onions or garlic around their necks. Disappointing!
