“Paris in the Spring”
Paris, France. May 2018. (6 photos)
This is Part 1 of my France 2018 photo series, and also Part 1 of my Europe 2018 photo series.
Perhaps you’ve noticed my absence and wondered why I haven’t made any posts for a while. The answer is simple. I’ve been travelling through Europe for just over 7 weeks in May and June of the European Spring. Almost 3 of those weeks were in France. 2 of those weeks were in Paris. I returned home to Australia on the weekend. I’m still feeling the jetlag.
Whilst in Paris, I made the deliberate decision to change accomodation so that I had a varied base to start my daily walks from. I was particularly happy with the view I had from 2 of my rooms.
“Room with a view”
Above is the view from the double windows of my hotel room in the 7th arrondissement.
Playing with long exposures and zooming during the exposure.
Below is the view from my 5th floor bed & breakfast apartment in Montmartre.

“A storm is coming”
Paris in the Spring meant changeable but mostly fine weather, patisseries, long hours of daylight, leisurely lunches, patisseries, fromageries, 5pm prosecco/apertifs, outdoor cafes, charcuteries, late sunsets, patisseries, 10pm dinners, and smaller crowds compared to Summer.
An evening storm announced my arrival in Paris. Now a storm is about to hit my blog…
