Ooo la la…this week my Instagram feed went to Paris! In three short days I managed to fall in love with the city yet again. My original goal in going to Paris was to do the 2 things I had never done before on my previous 3 trips to Paris – go to the Louvre and Versailles. However, I ended up doing neither! I guess I got distracted – but that’s easy to do in Paris.
Instead I walked around my neighborhood I was staying in, sat at cafes, ate crepes and sipped espressos. Plus – I had to be honest with myself – as much as I love photographing the outside of the Louvre, I’m not that interested in the art inside. Instead I went to view the art I love – the contemporary collection at the Pompidou center. So lest you think that I’m a complete culture-phobe – at least I did go inside a museum in Paris.
Besides museums, I also took in some cabaret and delicious decadent chocolate and French pastries. One morning I chased the fog to the Eiffel Tower to get a shot of the tower in the clouds. And I also played metro roulette and rode a line out for a ways and then walked through neighborhoods on the outskirts of Paris. I even ran into friends who also happened to be in Paris, so we had fun in the evenings finding little local joints to sip wine and eat cheese plates.
The three days went way too fast, but I managed to do a lot of photography – and eat a lot of chocolate and cheese. Paris perfection.
What is Week In-Stagram Review?
Each week brings some new scenery and location for me – that’s just the way I like it. If you want to follow where I am real time – then on Friday I will post some of my Instagram photos from the current week. Some weeks I may be traveling somewhere exotic, and some weeks it may be less interesting – but it will give you a peek into my life of perpetual motion.
