“Paris is always a good idea” Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina

Jadore, Art Nouveaux, Impressionism, elegance and pure style, Paris didn’t let me down it has everything. This city does everything stylishly and effortlessly from street graffiti and rubbish bins to adverts in the Metros displayed in Renaissance fashion frames.

The streets with their charming high buildings and Art Deco features were a pleasure to the eye, and the people were very polite and friendly despite my attempts at speaking French.

The most tourist thing I did was go to the Musee D’orsay on a late night opening. This was a fantastic experience especially standing in front of Van Gogh’s Starry night and really seeing the vibrant colours and brush strokes……..now inspired to try and convey this effect in future projects.

Anyway this is how I saw Paris

Camera Shy

Yes January is over, it’s mid February and the mornings are getting lighter……this is what I need to kick start that lens back into action and ignite my creativity, which has been recently camera shy. This year I aim to continue showcasing a monthly featured photographer, and other ones who you may not be aware of who I find are influencing my work.

On a personal note I am looking forward to finishing a maths course in May and then upgrading my camera. This will allow me to spend more time doing something I am passionate about, and also experiment using faster shutter speeds combined with macro shots.

Despite being fairly inactive here a few shots I’ve taken during recent months.
