I know that I'm skipping about here. I have many more photographs of Paris to share, but my computer has been out for repair most of this week, so I'm sharing what I have on my laptop.

While in France, I had a chance to try the newly released Polaroid PX680 Color Shade film, and I must admit that I am smitten by it. Learning how this film behaves under different lighting conditions was all part of the fun of experimentation. The color palette is delightful, sometimes tending toward the soft and pastel, and other times toward the bold and saturated. But when the stars align, the effect is like that of a faded watercolor painting.

These photographs were taken in Nice and Aix-en-Provence and are now available as a set in my Etsy shop.

Remaining Neutral

I apologize for the long delay in posting photographs from my trip to France. I've been having some serious computer problems (still ongoing). I finally managed to edit enough photographs for a post.

In this series of images, I allowed myself to stay neutral and to try to do justice to the beautiful and subtle color palette of Parisian architecture. The monocromatic color scheme, upon closer inspection, seems to in fact contain hundreds of variations of grey, cream, beige, and white. Perhaps this is where Parisian women, famous for dressing in classic, neutral colors and adding splashes of color through accessories such as scarves, get their inspiration.
