rainy day in Paris

In Black and White, Film, Travel

One of my favorite things about traveling is siestas. In the morning, we hit the ground running, and then come back to our hotel or apartment, and nap. When we wake up, we are ready to roam the city or town until dinner. It feels so luxurious.

One rainy afternoon while in Paris, my husband woke me up with a whisper, “Let’s grab our smallest cameras, fill it with black and white film, and go on an adventure.” How could I resist? Paris, rain, film, and my love… it was the perfect afternoon.

I know I am fortunate that my husband is also a film shooter, but I never felt so head-over-heals lucky as this particular day. We fell into cafes, we walked the Seine, and we kissed in the rain. It was magical.

There is magic is out there. Go capture it!
