24 hours in Paris: Part 3 – One photo for every hour

24 hours – 24 photos. It’s a nicely symmetrical homage to Paris, the city whose beauty knows no boundaries and whose charm could knock the socks off even the most sceptical of tourists. It’s been hard to choose just 24 photos for this little album. Just one day in Paris provided me with over 500 shots, each capturing something of the individual essence of a city whose character and allure is unique. Slate grey rooftops and sun dappled gardens, sunset over the iconic Paris skyline and reflected against glossy boutique shop fronts. Romance in a photo; beauty in a frame. What more can I say? I’ll let Paris do the talking.

Amsterdam Part V: Photographs

It’s my last Amsterdam post after four wonderful days in the city, and a couple of days reflection from my home in London, and probably my favourite of the bunch as I get to share with you my photographs of the trip. Amsterdam wasn’t always easy to photograph – when walking around, one is constantly wowed by the beauty of one canal after another, but what inspires at the time can be repetitive when the result is one canal shot after another. I’m hoping that in the selection I have posted, you will get to see more than just canals, although as ever, my obsession with street lamps continues throughout this bunch of photos. I only had my cybershot with me, leaving my bulkier SLR at home, but I’m pretty pleased with some of the resulting shots. It certainly wasn’t hard to be inspired by Amsterdam, even when the sun went in I was won over by beauty at every corner – so much so that it was hard not to have my camera permanently glued to my face. I will let the photos do the talking now and hope that you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them. Wishing you all a great weekend.
