Travel isn’t always pretty.

It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind. — Anthony Bourdain

  1. Great quote from a good man (RIP) – it moves me. That and your photographs make for such a thought- provoking post that I’ve shared it. Thank you. A lot.

  2. Oh, and so you know what I’m saying about you to others, here’s my text to accompany my share of your post: ‘From a blogger whose street photography I admire and who, more times than not, finds a banging quote to ice that delicious visual cake.’

  3. So much to find to love in Paris and you’ve done justice to it with your captures of both grandeur set aloft in stone and grandeur acting as the sparkle behind a couple’s quiet moment lost within themselves. Really well done, Tom! A lot of feeling in these 😊 But then, Paris is my fav 😊

  4. Paris HAS broken my heart, but that’s precisely why I love her. Just as I love your images, Tom. Next time you’re on the rue de Bièvre, I highly recommend La Soummam. I spent my last evening in Paris there in May, and everything about it was exquisite. Just like your images. (Have I mentioned how much I love your photography? :))
