Taste of Paris – New Prints Offered

The Eiffel Tower in soft winter light - textured

I’ve been making major headway with re-working my online gallery, and the latest to join the completed stack are the prints on offer from Paris! I’ve said over and over again that Paris is easily the most photogenic place I’ve been. There are cities that I dearly love that were not as shockingly beautiful. And it’s made the task of selecting what to include in my gallery even harder. In fact, I’m almost certain I’ll be rotating work in and out of this gallery in the future. This is probably … Continue reading

Eiffel Tower Pictures

Eiffel Tower Print - Picture Viewed from the Seine Overlooking Boats

A trip to Paris just wouldn’t be complete without seeing its most famous landmark, the Eiffel Tower.  Built in 1889 as the entrance to the World’s Fair, it was never intended to be there a hundred years later.  In fact, the permit was only for 20 years.  However, by the time those 20 years expired, the tower had become valuable to the city as a communications tower and its landmark status had grown. Until 1930 when the Chrysler Building was completed, the tower was the tallest manmade structure in the … Continue reading

Notre Dame de Paris By Night

Photo of Paris' famous cathedral, Notre Dame, at night

I guess in a way my posts for Notre Dame de Paris are out of order, as I’ve presented the pictures of it from the daytime first in these previous posts. Notre Dame Paris Prints Gargoyles of Notre Dame The thing is, I first saw Notre Dame Cathedral in the dark.  My flight out of Dublin was delayed by fog and by the time I managed to navigate the train, the metro, and the streets of Montmartre and settle into my home for the following five nights, it was dark. … Continue reading

Gargoyles of Notre Dame

One of the more memorable moments of my time in Paris was climbing to the top of Notre Dame de Paris.  It’s the latest in a chain of cathedrals and churches that I’ve ascended, but truly any publicly accessible tower is fair game. Clearly, none of these old cathedrals had any idea that a few hundred years later, people would fancy climbing their bell towers.  The paths to the top have been, without fail, steep and tight.  Notre Dame de Paris did not fail to live up to those expectations. … Continue reading

Notre Dame Cathedral Prints

Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral photo - Front View

I’ve been diligently working on getting my Paris prints gallery in order.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, despite the fact I wasn’t enthusiastic about Paris, the pictures from the trip have shown me one thing, this is an incredibly photogenic city.  Going through the photos after the fact, I don’t think I recall ever going somewhere with such a high number of photographs I considered keepers. Notre Dame de Paris translates to English as “Our Lady of Paris.”  There are other Notre Dame’s in France, more … Continue reading

Five Nights in Paris – Part Two

Panorama Photo of Paris' famous Notre Dame Cathedral

Continuing from my previous post of featured photos in Paris, after an early morning at Sacre Coeur, I made my way to Notre Dame de Paris. Although as you can see there were a lot of long shadows, there was equally awesome light for my visit to Notre dame.  The cathedral is a genuine medieval relic and is a UNESCO world heritage site!  And I’m just a sucker for large old cathedrals.  There’s something special about these buildings, much like the ancient stone circles. They are community projects from a … Continue reading
