48 Hours in Paris, France with the Sony A7ii | Travel Blog

Travel

Continuing the last blog post, which was a blitz through part of Europe’s Schengen Area, landing in Oslo and taking the train down to Copenhagen. After jumping on a flight from Copenhagen, I was off to Paris for a few days! Luckily, the gloomy weather in Northeastern Europe gave way to sunny skies in France, which made a pleasant couple of days in Paris, though for the photos I would have preferred a few clouds for those dramatic skies. I stayed in a hostel in Paris, which is always fun, since I was solo traveling with just my backpack I didn’t need all of the comforts of a proper hotel without Betty or Miles with me. Two days totally free in Paris before I had to take the train over to London meant A LOT of walking seeing as much as I could, and taking a few photographs along the way. Here are some of my favorite photos from 48 hours in Paris :). All photos taken with the Sony A7ii of course!

That was day 1, Paris is not too shabby even in March! Of course, I wish their were more Spring blooms and greenery around the park areas and the Tour Eiffel, but you can’t have it all I guess! After a loooong day of walking around, I headed back to the hostel and crashed hard. But it was back at it again exploring Paris on day 2!

Day 2 was more of the same I guess? If you couldn’t tell, I love the architecture in Paris and the streets. I thought the streets of Manhattan in New York were pretty cool… until you see the old streets of Paris. Seeing the catacombs, Seine, Lourve, Tour Eiffel… all cool, but just wandering those old streets was my favorite part. This was a great quick trip to spend 2 full days wandering around Paris for the first time with my little Sony A7ii. The next morning I checked out of my hostel and it was on to London via train to meet up with Betty and Miles for a couple days in London together. Highly recommend Paris to anyone and I really want to go back as soon as possible, hopefully for a wedding or prewedding photo shoot during slightly warmer weather! :)

Travel Photography: Farmers in Rural Shanghai
This post comes as a welcome break from the more travel oriented posts about our time in Beijing. While Betty did some real work in Shanghai, I spent my time on assignment shooting at the various farms and greenhouses we visited in the suburbs an hour outside of Shanghai. While Betty was occupied talking about gerberas and tissue culture, as well as being the company’s official translator from Mandarin into English, I occupied my time with camera in hand! Language barrier running at an all-time high way out here in rural China, I did my best to communicate nonverbally. Most of the time I made things work using the simple action of smili ...

Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 4 | Min Tai + Jimei
This is another quick Vacation post here on the ol' blog, a break from all the Indian weddings and engagements and traveling back and forth from New York to Atlanta! Day 4 of our vacation we headed to the outskirts of Xiamen to find Min Tai, an old ancient town that was turned into a tourist destination and then fell into misuse. Long gone are the buses of tourists to see some of "old China" but the locals are still hanging out on the streets of Min Tai, and the temple itself is still functioning of course. Interesting place to visit, not sure it would make my "Top 10 Sights of Xiamen" but interesting nonetheless! After spending the morning a ...

Personal | Daytrip to the Great Smoky Mountains with Jing & Ping
I've been pretty good about pumping out the wedding-related posts, and even recently doing a quick write-up of a new restaurant in Downtown Altanta. What I have not done recently, is shared any personal photos of just our normal life, which mostly revolves around Miles of course. Well, most days for us are really not that exciting with a schedule of waking up, taking Miles to the park and/or museum, while either Betty works on her dissertation or I edit wedding photos/videos. A couple of weeks ago when it was still relatively chilly out, we headed up to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to take Betty's PhD classmate and visiting profess ...
