Eiffel Tower and surrounds, Paris


Echoes of sunset
Echoes of sunset

It’s been an incredibly busy couple of months both at work and with my photography. I’m happy to report that I recently shot my first wedding; did a 2 day cycling event in Victoria; a gig for the NSW Ministry of Health and a large job for our own education department at work (which wasn’t formally paid – except through my normal salary). Coupled to this, I’ve (still) been working on my new website in the wee hours of the morning as well…

For this post though, I decided to return to the vault and share some more photo’s I took when I was in Paris late last year. I never got around to going through and editing them all, so this morning was as good a time as any. These shots (obviously enough from the post title) are all from my wanderings around the Eiffel Tower and surrounds.

          You’ll love it. Paris is as beautiful as they say. Picturesque, grungy, seedy and pretty all at once.
          Hope you get there soon.

      Cheers, Karen. Paris has so many shades of ‘colour’ its a joy to walk around with a camera. I could easily spend some more time there. I wish accommodation was a little cheaper though 😦

      Thank you, that’s really nice of you to say. Indonesia is a lovely place. I spent 2 months around Yogyakarta many years ago and loved it. Wonderful people.
