J’aime Aussi Paris en Couleur

Bonjour! I hope you enjoyed my recent J’aime Paris en Noir et Blanc post. Of course, Paris is also about color, a more playful Paris with  different situations, different moods… Here are a few frames from September. All photographs shot with the Fujifilm X100F in Classic Chrome. Which post...

Tired of Winter

It’s March 31, it snowed again… I am SO tired of winter that I went to the conservatory at Como Park today. It was packed with people. All probably feeling the same way I do. I’ve been so busy in my office since I returned from...

Winter Light

It’s been a very, very long and harsh winter in Minnesota… Several days of dangerous temperatures, turning into weeks. I can’t tell you how tired we all are of dealing with this. Having to worry about your eye lashes freezing shut as soon as you...

Escape the cold, go photo-antiquing

There there many things I love to photograph on bitterly cold days. The weather has never been an excuse for me not to exercise my ‘visual push-ups’. One of my favorite activities is what I call ‘photo-antiquing’. It’s not simply walking into an antique store and...

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...

I just spent a few days of vacation at my family home in Normandy, France. I’m not a beachgoers. I cannot sit still but I certainly enjoy walking, collecting sea glass and, of course, taking pictures. I also stay away from the busy beaches and...

The People of Malcom X Blvd ~ Harlem, NYC

It was my first time walking the streets of Harlem with my camera. I stayed in a small apartment on 136th street, at the corner with Malcom X blvd, also known as Lenox Avenue. I walked along the boulevard for an hour or two each...

Classic Chrome in San Francisco

You know how much I love B&W, it remains my favorite way to see the world. But I must admit that recently I’ve been looking for more color on the streets. As you know, it’s not a decision that I take lightly. I make the decision...

New York City ~ My Other Love ~ Part II

Maybe another reason why I love NYC so much is because, like Paris, I see it mostly in B&W. But I don’t believe that photography should be all color or B&W. The photographer has to let the subject dictate the choice. Here are a few...

Wanderings in Normandy

I am spending two days at my family home in Normandy before the next Paris photo workshop starts on Saturday. It’s a glorious time to be on the coast. The tourists are gone and the weather is nearly as beautiful as in July. I took...
