We’re kicking off sharing photos from 2 months in Europe with our week in Paris. Before spending a month at L’Abri in Switzerland Brad and I wanted to settle in somewhere for a week, get over the jet lag, and take a needed breath of foreign air. As many of you know, Paris is amazing. I don’t need gush over how much we loved our time here. If you haven’t been, go, take our short list with you, and remember – you can never eat too many chocolate croissants.
Many of the images we’re sharing below were captured on Brad’s Leica M6, a 35mm rangefinder. To be honest, we tried to keep our DSLRs locked up back at the hostel as much as we could. Shooting film allowed us to be more present with one another, and of course, fueled Brad’s love for street photography.
WHERE WE STAYED
Walking around Paris never gets old. We could have spent our entire week with black and white film roaming the streets and making images. There’s so much charm, character, and inspiration around every corner.
