It wasn’t the usual soft Paris drizzle. This was a hard, relentless rain. A put-away-your-camera, blowing sideways rain. But it was pretty.
I love the black and white shots..Paris is beautiful anytime
Some very nice B/W captures, Nichole.
How is the book selling? I have it on my wish list.
Is the long line for the Louvre? I haven’t been to Paris in decades.
Hi California Girl,
The book is doing really well. Much better than I had hoped. So I am super thankful.
The line is for the Musee d’Orsay. It was HUGE. Mainly because it was raining on a Sunday (everything else is closed). I wanted to see my book in the store, but we didn’t have time to wait. So I just snapped some photos of the crazy line.
lovely photos nichole. i love the one with the two girls and their umbrellas. i must show my eliza. she fell in love with the parisian style when she was visiting this past summer for her sweet sixteen. such a memory.
Gorgeous photos, as always! Love the B/W.
Great shots! I especially like for the empty street scene and the cafe table.
Rain photos are my favorite.
Paris & Rain together? Perfect coupling.
Beautiful pictures! Kaunista. sateista mutta lempeää.
Really lovely photos, thanks for sharing. Paris just looks fabulous all the time.
Paris is so beautiful in the rain!
beautiful combination! Paris+B&W+rain
Nice photos! I’m sensing a theme that you could sell in your online store! 2 more and you’d have your traditional 9!
Great shots! Even in the rain Paris still looks amazing and beautiful. I would love being there, even in the rain!
Love rainy days in the big city.’ Spot the colored umbrella in a sea of black’ is my favorite rainy day game in NYC.
The shot of the cafe tables is amazing! That one needs to be a print sold in the shop
Beautiful photos! I love cities in the rain. It’s been raining all day here too and it’s just so relaxing (when I’m indoors).
Absolutely stunning! Your color project photos are fabulous and I love your book, but maybe next you should do a Paris in Black & White book!
No matter the weather you can always take great pics! Carla x even in sideways rain!!!
I love these, wonderful
Beautiful series! I feel like I was there or wanted to be there. Sweet shot of the couple sharing an umbrella walking arm in arm and stride for stride!
paris in the rain? beautiful
Nicole! What a nice capture of that amazing city! Congratulations on your work. Do you have a photo book?
These are beautiful! I love that they’re in black & white. Can’t wait to experience a rain in Paris.

Funny how the City of Light looks best in black and white. Inspires profound thought…
oops! … I say this to the “Paris in Color” blog…gah.
It looks BEST in color, imo, but really… so…I’m sure there’s a perfect word in French for it – so melancholy and dreamy in b and w.
What a charming site! So glad I found it through Daily Candy. I love your shots of Paris, both in color and in black in white, although on some grey days there, the distinction blurs Your site and the fabulous recipes are like a gift in itself… and the chance to win books? Icing on a fabulous millefeuille! Thank you for the opportunity.
So excited to hear about David Flynn’s cafe. My husband loves Parisian espresso, but I have always found French cappucino disappointing. Seems that they don’t use the dark French roast that I am used to stateside, which is ironic.
The pictures of the Maison Gatti chairs made me nostalgic, but I was shocked at the pricetag, mainly because they are so ubiquitous … gives ‘overhead’ a new meaning!
Can’t wait to share your site with my daughter, who will be going to France for part of her Junior semester next Fall, and with all my other Fracophile friends…
