One bouquet, seven styles

The Rest

untitled-22-2

I recently did a guest post on the CraftyWife.com for her photography section. My topic was shooting different styles for one subject and you can read the article here. I had so much fun doing it and really liked the photos, so I thought I would share them on my blog (but don’t forget to read the full article!). Lisa

The Louvre Pyramid at dusk

My work is located a short walk from the Louvre (actually, so is pretty much all of downtown Paris). With all the craziness of work and school (aka never-ending thesis), it’s been easy to just rush from work to home and forget about what an awesome city I live in.

Pompidou Centre

Last weekend I went to see the Henri Cartier-Bresson exhibit at the Pompidou Center (which looks cool from the outside but reminds me of a movie theatre lobby on the inside).
