So I was looking through my image catalogue recently and I realised I have so many personal / travel / holiday pictures that have never seen the light of day. When I started this blog all the way back in January 2010, all I had to share then were awkward phone selfies and random pictures I had taken but it quickly evolved into a platform for sharing my work; I think it's time to go back to my roots and start sharing a bit more of my personal / casual work on the bloggity just in case you're interested. 😀
Last week was my 4 year wedding anniversary last week, so I thought I would start gay Paree, which is where my husband whisked me away to for our 1st wedding anniversary (yes - we were still in our honeymoon period) and then we popped in again briefly last year with the little man just before the holidays.
Paris is such a beautiful city but over the years, I've only ever popped in for a few days for a spot of fine food, fine men (when I was single of course) and fabulous shopping. I would love to go back with a couple of photog friends (I'm paranoid and don't like to head out on my own) and roam the streets in the gorgeous early morning light before the locals and tourists get out of bed. There are so many beautiful moments to behold - so am definitely adding that to my bucket list. In the meantime, here are some of my "touristy" pics from 2010 and 2012.
Have a fab weekend!
