If You Can't Laugh At Yourself ...

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's photos from the color project arranged on a stylized map of Paris. Each arrondissement is a different color. The print is 16x20 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. 

Pantone in Paris: Rhapsody

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

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. Coincidence?

Paris: Red and Black

Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red Paris: Black and Red In eighth grade, I wore a black ruffled mini skirt and red Bennetton sweatshirt to a dance. At the time (mid-80s) pairing red and black was cool. Well, cool according to Central Pennsylvania. I haven't worn red and black together since (shudder), but Paris wears it well.

Paris Color: Peach

Maybe it's the peach bridesmaid gown (floor length, with ruffles) that I once had to wear, or that really awful peach (smelly, buggy) hotel room in Ocean City, MD about twenty years ago, but I am not a fan of most shades of salmon. But, here it is Paris style. Not so bad, huh?
