- Hello fellow English Muse readers! I’m Jen Zahigian of That Wondrous Time and Roadside Photographs. I am a photographer from sunny California with a love for roadside relics and independent bookstores. Tina is an inspiration, and I’m so happy to be a guest here today.
- I’d like to share photographs from my first visit to Paris, in Spring 2005. I was lucky enough to spend three weeks there with my Mother, experiencing the best Mother & Daughter adventure a girl could dream up. We rented a cozy apartment on Rue Dauphine in the 6th Arr. near Pont Neuf. We walked, rode trains, visited museums, shopped for shoes, prepared meals, and treated ourselves to many, many fresh baguettes and pastries. It was amazing to call Paris home for three weeks, and in that time life was beautiful.
- Thankfully, as Hemingway wrote, Paris stays with you. The memories feel fresh, and I can hardly believe seven years have gone by. In just two short months I’ll be traveling to Paris again (and Bavaria, and Switzerland!) with my husband, and of course, my camera. I look forward to bringing home new photographs to share with you.
- For now, I hope you’ll enjoy these photographs of Paris as I saw it…
“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
P.S. A photo of me & my Mom bundled up for a chilly boat ride along the Seine…
