If you live in Southern California like me, you might not realize that it’s actually autumn. The trees are barely turning colors and just a couple weeks ago it was 100*F. (rolls eyes).
That’s why I’m extra nostalgic for autumn in Paris, so I’ve thrown together some of my favorite images of Paris covered in leaves.
ALSO, this is a great time to announce that I’ve been officially published in print! A couple months ago I entered an Instagram competition with Lonely Planet Traveller magazine. The theme was Ode to Autumn, so I submitted one of my photos of the autumnal banks of the Seine river, and I was picked! Here’s a peek at the page inside the Postcards section in November issue of the UK version of the magazine. Mine’s the first one at the top left!
The optimistic part of me hopes that this is just the beginning of my photographic career, and that there are many more moments like this to come, but the pessimistic, critical part of me is saying it’s no big deal, that it means nothing and doesn’t mean I’ll ever “make it” as a photographer. But regardless of my mixed feelings about this 2-by-2-inch square of real estate in a magazine, I gotta admit it’s pretty cool.
Just in case anybody is interested in purchasing this fall image as a print (my grandma has this one framed in her house!), I popped a listing into my Etsy shop, available here.
Without further ado, enjoy these fall-tastic photos of Paris that I’ve taken over the years. If there’s a specific photo you’d like to know the location of, just leave me a comment and I’ll reply!
Fantastic entry Hannah! And the photos are superb! And CONGRATULATIONS on being published! You definitely deserve it and if I were you I would be entering more contests! Your photography work is some of the best I have enjoyed!
My wife and I will be making the trip again to Paris next September (2018) for our 20th Anniversary. We will be routing via Belfast, Edinburgh, and London. Then on to Paris and heading home out of Munich. 4 weeks!
Thank you for all the work I know it takes to treat us to such a wonderful and enjoyable blog! It is one of my favorites and I really enjoy getting the notification emails saying there is something new!
Thanks Richard! Wow that’s quite a travel itinerary you have there!! I’ve been to London a couple times but Edinburgh has been on my list for some time. Enjoy your trip and anniversary :)
Thanks for following along – I truly appreciate your readership!
