J'aime Paris

OK so Paris is meant to be the city of love right? Well I wouldn't got that far but we did have a nice time when Emma and I travelled down in May to catch up with my Mexican friends Agueda and Daniel on their whistle-stop European tour.

Naturally I snapped the Eiffel Tower:

diagonal Eiffel up

But we soon got bored of that and made some comedy photos instead:

look up

which one is the real one?


And at night time the VR on my lens gave some nice steady shots without my tripod:

Eiffel dusk sharp dark Eiffel

But it's not only the tower there. Here's the Arc de Triomphe:

Orange Arc de Triomphe

I can't decide which of the two photos below I like the most. Shame I can't combine the blurred traffic with us sharp in the 2nd photo to make the best photo.

dark Arc de Triomphe

Looks like I found another Church my mum would love - the Sacre Coeur:

whole Sacre Coeur

There's quite a few step to tackle mind:

Where's Wally (Emma) in the photo below:

where's Emma?

But the views at the top are worth it:

I've been trying to get all my photos out the way ready for our Whistler trip just in case we actually have time to stop on holiday and take photos - no promises though!

Keukenhof Sunshine Weekend

the girls in bloom

Back in April, Emma's friends popped over for their annual Sunshine weekend and they certainly got lucky with the sun. We visited the famous Keukenhof flower park which is apparently the most photographed place in the world. Judging by the number of photos I took, I can see why!

photographer crazy

The problem is that once you've taken one photo of a tulip...

...then the rest look all the same!

But I tried some blurred variations like below:

beyond the tulip

Plus a bit of B/W photoshopping:

But I soon was over-flowered and started looking for people inspiration and there's hundreds of them there like below:

Keukenhof Sunshine Weekend - 55

My mum would've loved it just like these below. Scorching hot weather and still in rain coats - just in case!

time for a rest

The girls enjoyed their time:

windy mill

And I even found time to mess about with Emma:

multi tulips

There was some map confusion below:

where shall we go next?

But we eventually found the worlds largest (plastic) tulip:

I've picked a few of my favourite photos below but there's plenty more on my Flickr account here or in slideshow format here
