Paris Museums: Love is in the Air

A long feast…

Paris: People, Places and Bling

By Theadora Brack

Oops, I did it again.

I attended an exposition’s “vernissage” (literally, the “varnishing”—what we would call the opening), and became smitten with the show and its fine-looking catalog. Obsession activated! Hit hard, and a post card just wouldn’t do. Let me tell you, during the late summer days in Paris, there is nothing sweeter than curling up with an art book in a park just before l’heure bleue.

The North Downs Way, from Dunn Street to Wye #hiking #photography #Kent

Winter’s stigmas are all over the landscape, and yet nature is readying for Spring… The fields are still waterlogged, but crocuses are as bright as snow on the edge of dark woods. Snapshots taken on the North Downs Way (E2) from Eastwell Park to Dunn Street and back, and on to Wye and the Crown. Lens: Nikkor Af-S 18-55mm (no filter).
