Paris Week

I’ve been busy all weekend and the weather isn’t supposed to be cooperative all week, so I thought it would be a good time to share most of the Paris pictures. I’ve been hard at work since we returned in mid April removing tourists, tweaking exposure values, aligning images and reliving the trip to Paris through pictures again and again. Most of the pictures will be posted on the Smugmug site if you want to see them, but here on the blog I will be posting my favorites this week. These are the pictures that I hope show you not only how beautiful the city is, but how you need to see it for yourself.
The picture below is the view looking out from the Louvre. Beneath the giant glass pyramid is the entrance to an amazing collection of art - a testament to centuries of human creation. Countless expressions of joy, pain, love, freedom, strife, war, and religion reside here. Some of the best creations, of generations long gone, live and breathe in this museum. The weather was beautiful. We were very fortunate. Springtime in Paris. Highly recommended.
