a journey for photo knowledge

French History

Can’t take it in…

There is so much to see and do in Paris. When contemplating music I’ll use to accompany my photo montage, there was only one song that fully captured my thoughts on Paris…

Can’t close my eyes
I’m wide awake
Every hair on my body
Has got a thing for this place
Oh, empty my heart
I’ve got to make room for this feeling
It’s so much bigger than meIt couldn’t be anymore beautiful
I can’t take it in

-“I can’t take it in” by Imogen Heap



Tourism Fail

Sadly, this is as close as I got to the Arc de Triomphe, driving the circle Place Charles de Gaulle on a tour bus. I’m a little upset with myself for not exploring┬ásuch an impressive sight. But even with a full week in Paris, it’s impossible to see it all – and enjoy the pace of a vacation. ┬áTo quote PBS travel host, Rick Steves, “You have to go believing that you’ll be back.” And I will. Someday.
