Paris by iPhone

I finally upgraded to the new iPhone 5 and decided to switch off between lugging my D3S around and photographing on my iPhone.  I love the picture quality, and while I would still never use it to shoot portraits I love the iPhone and all the editing apps for my personal travel log.  I also decided to do the exact opposite and go low tech for a day and shoot all film for the day, which I'll share in my next post.  So here it is, Paris from my iPhone (all photos taken and edited on the iPhone 5).

Paris Family Photography

I had so much fun spending the afternoon with this adorable family in the 6th arrondissement in Paris!  The light, the cobblestones, the smiles....I miss Paris already!

Daytrip to Versailles

Versailles has always been a spot that I had a love hate relationship with.  It is undeniably gorgeous, but always so packed with tourists!  I hate big crowds of people so definitely not my favorite place on earth.  I have been probably close to a dozen times now as I had to make many trips while I was working on a paper while studying in Paris, but have not been back in 5 years.  This is my memory of Versailles- huge groups of tourists and lines that never end


However, when my friend wanted to go I figured why not and we actually had a wonderful time.  We spent most of our day exploring my favorite area- the gardens and Marie Antoinette's quarters.  She had a whole little disneyland-esque village built for her right on the property so she could imagine what it felt like to be middle class without actually having to get near the people.  She was a crazy one.  But the property is gorgeous and I love finding all the small little treasures.
