23 Oct 96 Hours in Paris – Part One

Source: Ian Macdonald Photography

I am consumed by the city.  This isn’t my first trip here, nor will it be my last, but the magic, the wonderment, it never goes away.  My mind takes in the people, the sounds, the smells, the architecture, the beauty that lays at times under a thin veneer of grime and I am held in its sway.  This city has a soul.

Walking through history on streets that are more than a thousand years old, streets built long before my country was born, I can’t stop seeing things to shoot.  Dichotomy applies:  I miss my wife, my daughter, my dog… but I am an artist in Paris with nothing but my camera and free time to create.

And so I do…

Until Part Two…
