On our last trip to Paris, we completed a new project (more on that in a few weeks!), but I couldn’t help snapping a few reds for old time’s sake.
I’m archiving photos and rediscovering some shots I forgot about or see a bit differently now that I have some distance. Here are a few browns.
I shot these two photos near Sacre Couer last winter. I noticed the pigeon’s eyes and feet kind of matched the door (oh, yes I did!), then spotted this woman in blue grays and maroon-ish browns a few feet away on the steps leading up to the cathedral. A clear indication I had either lost my mind or needed a break from the color hunt.
It’s one of the last series of photos I shot and a funny way to wrap up the color project. I had forgotten about the photos until recently and had a good laugh when I stumbled upon them.
It was impossible not to shoot red and turquoise after seeing the young woman in the top photo pull it off.

My husband Evan has been working on this project and finally finished it. It’s photos from the color project arranged on a stylized map of Paris. Each arrondissement is a different color.
The print is 16×20 and is available in our etsy shop here. We’ll be adding it to the Paris Print Shop in a bit.
There’s one up for grabs over at Facebook.
Yes. Yes I did take a photo of it for color inspiration. Considering taking this to the paint store for a match.
It’s was drizzling, so you can see a few drops on my lens if you look close. Bad camera owner, I know.
He matched. What can I say?
Have you seen the Pantone Fashion Color Report? It’s a nice line up of neutrals complimented by saturated, energizing shades.
I love pairing neutrals and bold colors, and it’s one of the things I love about photographing Paris. The gray skies and neutral building facades are the perfect backdrop for vibrant color.
I couldn’t resist a few Pantone-inspired shots, and the first one is “Rhapsody” – a pretty shade of lavender. Have a peek at Nicole Miller’s take.
Cafe St. Regis is one of those places I’ve walked past a hundred times. Until this last trip, I’d never photographed it.
Then I noticed that the chairs coordinated with the facade of the building and signage. Upon closer inspection, I realized the black sign was peeling and revealed a layer of reddish paint. The chairs are also black and reddish.
