Paris is a photographers dream! I already consider myself a hopeless romantic, but I truly believe that this city could bring the romance out in anyone. These streets are bustling with the vibrant lives of artists from traditional painters to those drawing with charcoal or street musicians playing for tips. I only had a few days here but I think I need at least a month to feel completely satisfied. Perhaps thats the beauty of Paris though? It always leaves you wanting more.
I am so glad I was able to explore so much in my short time. One of my favorite days was traveling up to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica overlooking the city. In the area of Montmartre has stolen my heart with the historic church resting atop the hills. There we scooped up a few flavors of gelato and strolled through hidden back alleys overflowing with locals offering hand crafted goods and souvenirs. I scored a few antique treasures there in a small bookstore to bring back to my friends and family. Next time I think I may have to bring a whole suitcase just for books!
