Studio photography class (and review)

The Rest


I haven’t been able to take many photos lately because of a hectic schedule and an extreme lack of sunshine (short winter days and cloudy afternoons), so I decided to sign up for a studio photography class instead. I had taken one before in Lyon, which was nice, but had a lot of technical information that was hard to grasp….

Musée Jacquemart-André

The Rest


I went very camera-happy this summer and I’m still getting around to posting all the photos. I almost forgot about this set in between all the travel photos, but it just goes to show that you can find the prettiest places close to home (ok, well, if your home is Paris).

November: Ten on Ten

Ten on Ten

Since my friend bakes more than she could eat on her own…

Relaxing in Cinque Terre

Catching the last bit of summer in Italy



I realize that as I’m writing this that it was actually 25 degrees in Paris this weekend, so technically, I’m still catching the last bit of summer here, buuuuut Tuscany was very summery as well (and will probably remain so until November). A few weeks ago I flew for a long weekend with a friend to Florence, where we spontaneously…
