In Paris the photographer is famously spoiled for choice.  During the week in the early spring I spent there photographing the city I hoped to take back home images that capture the life of the city as it was about to bloom.  From the newly decorated shop windows to the bright sunshine in the parks and the budding gardens, the thawing street-life of that week was exhilarating and remains an inspiration to this day.  

"Paris… is a world meant for the walker alone, for only the pace of strolling can take in all the rich (if muted) detail."  -Edmund White
