Paris (sneak peak)

I've had a bit of a mental block or maybe more of a flood since I've been back from Paris.  Being away  (among other things) even for just a few days, had been enough to push me into a  motion forward.  I've been inspired to move ahead, to keep going and not look back. 

I've been home now for a few weeks finalizing the edits of the hundreds of photo's I took in Paris.  This was my fourth time in the beautiful city, but this time, I was there to work on a very special project for my good friend Norma. 

Norma and I had travelled to Paris together two other times before, and this time, the seed was planted as two old friends sat in a Toronto cafe one morning a few months back, catching up over brunch.  We talked about the website that Norma was hoping to launch soon after her return from her next trip to Paris a few months later.  Her website, dedicated to  her love of Paris, was all about her travels, tips and suggestions regarding anything to do with Paris.  Even though her website had not officially launched yet, people from all over the world had already discovered it on-line and she was busily making travel plans for their visit to her favourite place in the world!  So as we sat in this cafe, and talked about her next trip over, we couldn't help but reminisce about the times that we had shared in Paris.  She mentioned that she would love some new photo's to put on her website, and I had reminded her of what I do for a living.  The seed was planted, and by our 4th coffee, we were booking flights and planning our 3rd trip together to Paris!  

Our itinerary was set, appointments were made with various hotels around the city and reservations were booked for some of the more interesting spots in town.  I got my gear together, bought some comfortable shoes, did my homework and was ready to have the experience of a lifetime!

Here's a sneak peek at some of the spots we visited and things we saw while in Paris this past spring. 

I can't wait to show you all of my favourite things about this trip including some of the beautiful architecture, great cafe's, and the flowers....OOOH, the flowers!!   
I am just ripping at the seams to introduce to you the beautiful website that Norma has been working on so excitedly for months!  You'll soon see why I'm excited too.
