Early morning on the Butte

I wasn't the only photographer on the Butte Chaumont this morning...

Morning is frozen

I woke up with a text message from Dad saying, “Are you awake? Look at the trees.”

It’s a treat being home, and seeing the sun rising at the same time as my family. In a time zone seven hours ahead, this text wouldn’t make sense, it wouldn’t happen. Of course I’m awake, it’s 2pm!

So I piled on clothes, kissed the dog goodbye and headed out. If she had more meat on her bones she could’ve come with me but her little bird legs can’t handle the cold. She would have to ride inside my coat and she’d probably sneeze all over my camera.

Frost, 8am.

Back inside, I feel as frosted as those branches.
But my hands will soon be around a big warm mug of honey-sweetened coffee.

Hey Dad, look at the trees!

Just gotta walk

It has been a snowy week in Paris, with nights of enchanting light.
Tonight, layered up and wandering the streets of my old neighborhood, the knots of thoughts in my head run so fast, my feet have to give them space to sort themselves out.
