21 Aug Paris in July

I’m a little behind in my blog posts. Summer has been ‘non-stop’, just the way I like it. In July I spent a few weeks at my family home in Normandy (see earlier post here). I was traveling with my two boys. They’ve spent every summer in France since they were babies, it has always been a priority for me to make it happen. I didn’t want them to experience their other country as tourists, but always in full cultural immersion, with family. July at Papy and Mamie’s house has always been one of the highlights of the year for them. You can also imagine how much my parents value those priceless visits.

We usually travel to other european countries as well during our visit but this summer was a shorter trip so we stayed mostly on the coast and traveled to Paris for 3 days.

As you know, I travel and take pictures for a living, so the camera takes a back seat during my family vacations. Of course, the camera is with me every step of the way and I make it a challenge in limitations to only grab shots here and there while on our daily outings.

I travelled with my trusted Fujifilm X100F and switched from B&W to Classic Chrome depending on the subject and the light throughout the day.

Here are a few of my favorite pics from those 3 days in Paris with my kids. I’m going back there next month and I can’t
