More Than an Image Photography »

Hello Internet!  Welcome to Paris! In case you missed the previous blog post… I will be out of the country from January 7th through Jan 19th shooting Katherine and Matts wedding!  But while I’m out… so I don’t leave you guys hangin’… I’ll have a series of blogs automatically post from my Europe trip in October… when I was there for Elizabeth and Stewarts wedding! After the wedding my mom and I went to Paris for a couple of days before flying back home… Since I recently posted a blog post about my last time in Paris…I thought I’d post some pictures other than the Eiffel Tower! haha!

This is the Louis Vuitton store on the Champs Elysees! I took these pictures for 3 reasons… The sheer fact that it is 5 stories is just… CRAZY.  The fact that they allow one person in per client at a time… which is why that cluster of people you down there is the line that wrapped around the building… and lastly…the unbelievable window!! If you can’t tell from this post… it is a ton of hot air balloons of all different sizes… I went back at night to take another picture with my phone… I’ll try to post some iPhone shots in another blog post later!  (I took a ton of iPhone pictures… much more than my actual camera)

 

PINIMAGEPINIMAGETHE Mona Lisa… at the Louvre!  And the ceiling (bottom left) and more paintings!PINIMAGEI think we waited for about an hour for the sun to set so they would light the Pyramids up… Finally we asked and they said that they only light them during certain seasons or for certain events! LOL Siiighhh Glad we waited! 😛  Actually… the night shots are more stunning than the day shots so I really am glad we waited ha!PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEI LOVED this clock sculpture on the left…and on the right if you look closely you can see the specks of light… That was taken during their light show! 🙂PINIMAGESacre Coeur (left)PINIMAGE

Hi hi Hi!! 🙂 In case you missed the previous blog post… I will be out of the country from January 7th through Jan 19th shooting Katherine and Matts wedding!  But while I’m out… so I don’t leave you guys hangin’… I’ll have a series of blogs automatically post from my Europe trip in October… when I was there for Elizabeth and Stewarts wedding!  I took my mom with me… and we went a few days early to go to Italy first… and we stayed a few days after the wedding and went to Paris! 🙂

Elizabeth and Stewart’s wedding was in Manchester, England… but before we went to Paris…we stayed a couple of days in London!  FUN city!!

PINIMAGEPINIMAGESo we went into Harrods… This place…has everything from puppies to vegetables… $1,000 gold leaf tea and marshmallows… I kid you not!

I asked the guy in the pet store what the biggest sale was…and he said something like $20,000 for a chihuahua. AREYOUKIDDINGME! NOFLIPPIN’WAY! LOL!

Rather than dropping copious amounts of cash on things we didn’t need… we decided to take detailed shots in the market.. It was just too beautiful not to! Look at these displays! Beautiful!

Hello again!! 🙂 In case you missed the previous blog post… I will be out of the country from January 7th through Jan 19th shooting Katherine and Matts wedding!  But while I’m out… so I don’t leave you guys hangin’… I’ll have a series of blogs automatically post from my Europe trip in October… when I was there for Elizabeth and Stewarts wedding!  I took my mom with me… and we went a few days early to go to Italy first… and we stayed a few days after the wedding and went to Paris! 🙂

 

So, when I was in Vernazza in 2007… I stayed next to the same room (owned by the same people) as I did this time… but this time I noticed something different… As I walked up the steps to get to my room I noticed this open door with these things hanging!! Come to find out… This is how they make their homemade wine!! (Everyone there makes their own wine… kind of like we make tea! haha!) Anyway…this homemade wine is called Sciacchetrà  (pronounced Sha – keh – trah…. ha! Hooked on phonix worked for me :P) Anyway…I thought it was really neat how they hung the grapes from the ceiling of their… I don’t know what it was… but it looked like their storage room!

PINIMAGEThis contraption on the right is what they squeeze the dried grapes into… it is a super concentrated and sweet wine!PINIMAGEThis is Allesandro and Giani working on their boat 🙂  Sadly… the week we were there… right after we left… it rained about 20 inches…causing a mudslide.  If you didn’t know anything about that…please watch this video… Ahh..just breaks my heart! I thought about Giani working on his boat… which is most likely in several pieces now…or washed onto the piazza…PINIMAGEIf you watched the video up there… The area that the water was flowing over… is this area below… Here is another videoPINIMAGEThis is Monterosso!PINIMAGEWhen I was there in 2007 I did a photo shoot for Ciak Restaurant! I knew they had published the images in a cook book… but I didn’t know they had post cards displayed! So neat to see these in print!PINIMAGELuigi Ciak in his kitchen! More specifically, he was making my pesto and pasta!! Pesto is from the Cinque Terre… I didn’t learn that until this trip! haha! It is DELICIOUS!!PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEThe Leaning Tower of Pisa!PINIMAGE
