More Than an Image Photography »

Bonjour!  Im still out of the country!! But will be back soon!!  Four years ago I was here in Paris! I’m here again but wanted to share some photos from the last time I was here since I never posted them!

I’ll go ahead and state the obvious! The Eiffel Tower!

PINIMAGE

There was this huge PEACE exhibit… It was amazing!! There was this huge piece of plexi-glass with the word “Peace” in every language in the world… Breathtaking!

PINIMAGE

The Louvre

The Louvre:  Winged Nike (Left)  Venice de Milo (Right)

PINIMAGE

Arch de Triomphe

PINIMAGE

A famous Metro station… (I can’t remember what movie it was in!! If you know, please leave it in the comments!!):)Lori is on the left… I am on the right!

PINIMAGE

You do not want to know how early we had to wake up to dance around the Louvre like crazy people…with no one there! haha!!

PINIMAGE

Notre Dame Cathedral  … more interestingly… Where I stood next to Yao Ming… Would you believe… as TALL as he is… I didn’t notice until 400 people in the square turned around and starting taking pictures of me… I smiled and posed… got my pen out to sign autographs…….*crickets*….. but they weren’t having it!! I mean, I’m LACY DAGERATH! HA! Kidding!! Psht!  No one knows me!   What really happened was… we just about got MOBBED because they all started walking toward us while taking pictures!! When I turned around I saw Yao standing next to me… and let me just tell you… That guy is TALL… I mean… You know he’s tall because he’s 7ft 6in… but you don’t realize how tall THAT is until you’re standing NEXT to the guy… I’m 5ft 6in… if that gives you any idea… ha! The interesting part was that we were both from Houston (Well… he isn’t originally… but you get my point)… and the BEST part of the whole thing…was watching him climb limb by limb into the smallest. car. ever. HA! I was too busy picking my jaw off the floor to take pictures… hahaa Ohhh the memories!

Okay.. moving on…

PINIMAGE

 Montmartre – Basilica of Sacre-Coeur  The photo on the left is the Basilica… the two photos on the right is the view from the Basilica… the top photo is the left and the bottom photo is the right…  I hope that makes sense.:)

PINIMAGE

 

A view of the Eiffel Tower from the Seine RiverPINIMAGE

The original Statue of Liberty on the right… (A little history for you… Did you know that the Statue of Liberty in NYC was a gift to the US from France?)

*notice the people standing at the base of the statue on the left… Then notice how small the statue looks against the Eiffel Tower* Amazing! My mom took a similar picture to mine on the right… many years ago!

PINIMAGE

And a couple of bridal portraits!:)PINIMAGE

  • liz perdomo - OH WOW! here I am thinking you’re out, esp. out of country, but you have still managed to blog…you so rock! sadly I haven’t followed bc well..i thought you were out! ah hahaa. But its sweet to wake up and see these great photos on here. I am glad you have enjoyed your trips to Paris. You seem to be having such a great time…even dancing at the Louvre! Love the “Peace” Image and the Notre Dame Cathedral. Its esp. neat to see Paris the way you view it through your lens…makes it that much more diff. and special.

We are not visiting Venice this trip…but thought I’d post these anyway!:)Hello internet… Welcome to Venice!:)

This was our hotel room! The walls… are silk! Fancy!

PINIMAGE

See the cat on the right? They have broken glass on the ledge to keep them from walking on it I guess… but it doesn’t work… Maybe its for the birds! (Literally!)

This sweet woman makes these Venetian masks by hand! Super impressed!! I bought one!! The one I bought is a leather one… (you’ll see it below) I still have it! In fact.. I think it will be my halloween costume this year!

PINIMAGE

Happy Lamp Maker!PINIMAGEPINIMAGE

We were trying to keep ourselves entertained on our overnight train ride to Paris!  These were the ladies we shared our train ride with!!

They liked my mask too! haha!

PINIMAGE

And here are pics of us wearing my mask!  A little side note… The first time I ever had nutella was here… and we didn’t have anything else to eat… except for that and pringles… so that was our dinner… pringles dipped in nutella!

  • liz perdomo - love all the images on this post! Chef Luigi is super cute and I can just imagine his food is delish!

Ciao!! Come Stai?:)Va Bene! I’ve been practicing my Italian.;)(I’m still a little rusty.. :P)   So in case the Italian verbiage didn’t give it away… I am currently out of the country… I have a wedding in England this coming weekend… but I will be traveling a little bit before and after… My mom is traveling with me!! (She says hello!):)(Click on her name and see how beautiful she is!)  Today we are in Vernazza… I was here 4 years and 2 months ago (to the date!)… but I never shared these photos… (I wasn’t much of a blogger back then);)so I thought, what better time than to share them now!:)We flew into Paris yesterday… hopped on a flight to Milan… stayed the night there last night and traveled to this beautiful place today!! Friday we will fly to England where I will shoot Lizzy & Stewart’s fabulous wedding… Then we will head to London… and Paris…and fly home! (I’ll be posting pictures from my trip 4 years ago… along this journey! Then I’ll post more from this trip when I get back!):)

When you get off the train in Vernazza, this is what you see… Sunset in Vernazza!

PINIMAGE

This  was the view from our window!PINIMAGEPINIMAGE

Night view. Love the colors!

PINIMAGEPINIMAGE

See that bright light?… See the girl standing in the window two windows over from that bright light?  Thats Lori in our room!:)THIS trip… we are staying in the room to the left of that… with the light on!:)

PINIMAGEPINIMAGE

Our first night there we grabbed a slice of pizza and sat here and ate it!  By the way… In Italy… if you ask for Pepperoni pizza… they give you bell pepper’s on your pizza! You may also know that if you watch the Jersey Shore. Ha!;)

PINIMAGE

Lori!

PINIMAGE

Another view from our window (on the left) in the weee hours of the morning! Now… on the right… ahhh This is why I love this place… You can walk down that… I don’t know…I guess you would call it a hallway… and you can take turns…and every time you turn… it leads to more awesomeness!  I’m still not sure how we didn’t get lost…

PINIMAGE

By the train station is the post office and this little bakery/eatery… The two images on the right are Skivvies hanging in our window to dry;)

PINIMAGE

Just some awesome Italian men… hanging out… Seriously… They just sat there and people watched… every day! I’m going to look for them this trip:)

PINIMAGE

Musicians in the Piazza!

PINIMAGE

Lori and I hiked allll the way from way down there!:)

PINIMAGE

We hiked for THIS picture! Pretty sure I’ll do it again this trip!

PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGE

Don’t hate on how rough I look here… Did you read where we hiked from wayyyyy down there? AND I was standing on a 5 inch ledge trying to hold my arm out to take my own picture! HA!

PINIMAGE

Ohh! This guy on the left is MARIO! I was walking…and he and his friend were working in his little space there… They were working on fisherman nets… He saw me watching them… and he walks over… grabs a wine glass and holds it up… I say “Sure!” with a big cheesy grin on my face…because I know he didn’t understand me…but a SMILE is universal!;)So he poured us a glass of his homemade wine…. and ohhhhmygosh!!  It was the best wine… I think I’ve had til this day! Lori will agree with me…

This right image was a window… but I don’t remember what they were selling… Seems to be Coats and Ballet shoes… haha

PINIMAGE

After dinner…everyone relaxes in the Piazza… We spent each night here and at the Blue Marlin Bar… meeting people!

PINIMAGE

Blue Marlin Bar… I look forward to seeing these guys again!!:)

PINIMAGE

I loved the menu in Italian!:)

PINIMAGEAnd last but not least… This is a painting OF the front of the Blue Marlin Bar… IN the Blue Marlin Bar.
