Paris (through the lens of an iphone)...

.

Hello, my dear ones, and Happy Monday to you!
I hope you had a relaxing, joyful weekend!

I've been meaning to do so many blog posts,
but have managed to do exactly zero posts for 11 days!
Sheesh!

Life has a way of cutting in to my blogging schedule...

To restart things, I thought I'd do a
wonderful post about one of the many trips
Ron has taken in the past few months.

These photo album posts are long overdue.
Let's get the ball rolling with his Paris photos, shall we?
I find it amazing that an iphone can capture such
moody
detailed
illuminated
charming
amazing
 photos.

Of course, some credit must be given to
the man behind the phone...

Thank you, Ron, for making this
quite magical
post possible. xoxo

I had a tough time deciding
the best order in which to show these photos.
Then I realized they would be best shown
in the order he took them.
Duh.

He usually doesn't have an entire day to himself
when he travels.
It worked out that he did this time.
There he was...
A free day in Paris...
This time, with a request from his wife,
he took pictures.

It began with a stroll along the Seine River...

A bridge over the Seine where people put locks
 with their sweethearts initials
on the chainlink fence.

A street he wandered into
 and found some delicious treats.

Yum!

Lots and lots of caramels.
He brought me back a bag.
Individually wrapped slices of heaven.

Nightfall in the city of lights.

I hope you enjoyed these beautiful photos.
I know I love looking at them again and again.
I actually had to pick and choose which ones
to post.
There are even more!

Two of them are my very favorites.
Can you guess which two?
{I numbered them for this reason.}
I'll tell you which two were my favorite in my next post.


Thank you so much for stopping by...
You bring sunshine into even the cloudiest days!

Ah Paris! My favorite city! Great photos and it's very hard to narrow it down to only two favorites... I like 10, 11 and 15, though. I think they really capture the spirit of the City of Lights. But the last photo, the Eiffel Tower, is quite beautiful.
Thanks for sharing these, Dennice! :)

Hi, lovely Jayne! Thanks for playing along. I love the ones you mentioned too. I said I have two favorites, but every time I look at these pics I find something new to love about each of them! :)

Hope your week is filled with happiness...xo
