Sous le ciel de Paris

On the way back from Geneva I made a stop in Paris to meet up with some friends from Cambridge. The weather forecast had first promised sun, but that turned out not to be the case. On Saturday morning Hannah Copeland and I headed out to Pont de Bir-Hakeim to photograph. The idea was that the bridge would provide a bit of shelter from the rain. Luckily the rain was not too heavy, so after warming up over a cup of chocolate we headed out to Trocadéro. You can see some of the photos below. In the afternoon we were joined by Vinciane Jones at the Louvre, and the photo adventure continued.

We then took a break and headed to a Parisian Café, to warm up and to review our plan for the day. We decided to walk along the Seine up to Trocadéro, and then have lunch after that. Lunch turned out to be a nice little French fish restaurant that served what might very well be the best salmon I ever had.

In the afternoon we were joined by Vinciane, and we headed over to Palais Royal which had some really beautiful archways that made for a great photoshoot location.

After sunset we headed to the Louvre to do some photos by the big glass pyramids.

Many thanks to Hannah and Vinciane for a fun Saturday in Paris!
