“When spring comes to Paris the humblest mortal alive must feel that he dwells in paradise.” – Henry Miller
What a difference one year makes as headlines from Paris in recent weeks showed a much different scene than these images with the Seine River threatening to flood Paris as it had other parts of France. Thankfully reports are hopeful that the worst is now over, but our thoughts are with those in flooded areas of France and Germany as they have much recovery work ahead.
These are some of my favorite photographs from our trip to Paris last spring. It’s been daunting to find the time to review and edit the images. We normally travel in November, so it was a treat to explore Paris with longer days and lots of beautiful light – not to mention leaves on the trees and blooms! We also visited Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny and Keukenhof in Amsterdam, so I’ll be posting images from these adventures soon.
