QuinissaI had the chance to visit Notre Dame sadly after the fire ruined the back part of the cathedral, because it was made of wood, so it was easily caught on fire. But luckily, the front part still looks very beautiful, and if you just stay at the front parr, you couldnt tell that something happened before. The Seine river beside this cathedral makes it look even more pretty. I didnt have the chance to go inside because it was closed for renovation at that time.
QuinissaYou have to go here if you come to Paris! This is where some of the streets meet in Paris. Make sure you go up where you can see the Eiffel Tower from there, and also many streets where the Arc will be right in the middle. Be ready to take the steps up, as there is no elevator. In between the sections, there will be a galleries where it shows the history of the Arc, and some stories too.
QuinissaMagnificent Palace. People say it would be hard to impress people with another palace after you visit Palaca of Versailles, which I think its true. It is huge and beautiful. Inside, you can see the decoration of the palace where the King used to live and his family. Outside, there is a HUGE and BEAUTIFUL garden which also has many fountains and a big lake. On some of the days, there will be a musical fountains show, though it costs extra money, but it is definetely worth to see. You will feel like youre actually inside a movie like Troy or Game of Thrones!
Lee Young143Musée d'Orsay, ParisThe museum was installed in the former Orsay railway station , built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900. So the building itself could be seen as the first “work of art “ in the Muse’e d’Orsay

Back in the city for a few days after a pretty intense road trip ! Lots of new content to edit and share in the next weeks ! Now getting ready for some proper holidays with my brother in the west of France
Cloudy sunsetIn love when the sun pops out of the clouds and offers the best opportunities to chase some light and clouds ! Definitely my favorite kind of sunset in Paris !
Finally got to capture a picture I have in mind for a long time at the most famous lavender field of Provence ! I had to come here three times (once last year and twice this week) to eventually get the expected composition under the perfect sunset conditions. Sometimes patience is key … especially in photography 😅 Hope it was worth the wait ✌️
Happy Bastille Day from the lavender fields of Valensole ! I guess it’s my turn to post these stunning purple golds 😅 Thanks to @mary_quincy for braving her fear of the bees 🐝 I am glad I could see and capture the lavenders just before the end of the season !
Over the past years, I have been spending a lot of time chasing the sun light in the streets of Paris ! Being at the right place at the right time is all about studying the sun’s path throughout a year ... So I know exactly when and where to go so as to have the sun in the axis of the streets 😉 When on location, I usually wait until I got the shots I had in mind, like for example this series of bike passing by !
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.

musée de l’histoire de Paris, a enfin réouvert ses portes ! (Quand il n’est pas en grève…) et je pense que c’était la réouverture la plus attendue de l’année. Le lieu est magnifique, même si beaucoup trop impersonnel a mon goût (plus aucun charme de l’hôtel particulier une fois à l’intérieur). Le manque de signalétique se fait vite sentir, à la fois lors de la visite (plusieurs directions possibles dans la même salle on passe alors à deux périodes totalement différentes…) que pour sortir (on a demandé à 3 personnes du staff des renseignements pour descendre et on a jamais eu la même version, la dernière était finalement la bonne…) en bref, je crois que j’attendais beaucoup de ce musée et j’ai été assez déçue (et je ne suis pas la seule apparemment) mais j’y retournerai pour finir sur une note plus positive.

Montmartre, le Sacré-Coeur, ses charmantes ruelles et le quartier dynamique de Pigalle... Je trouve que lorsque l’on vie à Paris, on ne profite pas de toute la beauté que la ville nous offre et notamment de Montmartre. J’ai aimé visiter le museedelavieromantique , remonter la rue Lepic, emprunter les escaliers de la rue Tholozé qui font le charme du quartier, manger un divin poulet rôti chez lecoqrico_paris donnant sur le dernier moulin de Montmartre lemoulindelagaletteofficiel . Après le déjeuner, on continue de flâner entre les belles maisons, notamment à la villa Leandre, on fait la bise à Dalida avant de se promener le long des vignes et le cimetière Saint Vincent. Entre les arbres de la rue de l’abreuvoir, se dessine la lamaisonroseofficial et les toits du Sacré Cœur. Dernier détour devant le Château d’Eau de Montmartre et la place du Tertre, avant d’être récompensé par la vue imprenable que nous offre la butte, sur tout Paris. On comprend pourquoi ce quartier a autant inspiré les artistes et les croyants, comme les nombreux touristes de passage.

SIGNS OF THE SEASON 🌷 So I guess Spring has officially started in Paris as the first magnolias have started to bloom in the Tuileries Garden ! I was there yesterday and some of the trees are already good looking ! As you know me, I am so excited to be capturing some Spring vibes in the next weeks ! Who’s with me ?!
