A few years ago, when I came back from my first Paris trip, I ‘met’ a super nice (and talented) photographer, that has a passion for Paris as well. We became fast cyber friends. He is a successful wedding photographer in San Francisco, California. He has been taking black and white infrared photographs of Paris and France for the past 5 Septembers. He sent me a beautiful note card with the above picture on it. I have it framed and it hangs on my bookshelf. He has been working on a book and told me last year…that I would be the recipient of a copy of his book. Since that day, I excitedly cleared a spot on my coffee table, where it will be cherished, as not only beautiful photos of Paris, but as a reminder of his talent, our chance friendship and an inspiration to making dreams come true.
You can visit Randy’s website for info on his book and a wonderful gallery of his work around France and Paris. This photo is one of my favorites. The book,"The French Landscape: Images of a Special Light" should be published this fall, so keep your eye out for it. I know I will.
