Le Palais-Royal Roses

In early May, J and I took another quick trip to Paris. It was our third time there together and we had really hoped to be better prepared this time with plans. Nope, we couldn't plan a trip if our lives depended on it. We stayed in the 1st again (to be close to Télescope Cafe of course) and spent many mornings walking through the Palais-Royal. I was determined to shoot the stunning roses that lined the paths before I left.

On the last night, we both got food poisoning and had a flight to catch the next morning. We dragged ourselves out of the AirBnB to the gardens so I could shoot these in between bouts of stomach pain. Sounds crazy, but I know I would have been more upset if I had missed the chance to shoot these. Getting lost in the folds and petals of these with my camera was very soothing. I only wish I had more time with them.





I plan on making a few prints of these. All of these are available as fine art prints from 8x10 up to very large sizes if anyone is interested.

  11. This is absolutely beautiful, though I can't believe you shot these with food poisoning! I love that I can see water droplets on these beauties, you are as inspiring as always.

  13. Oh my gosh. Just came upon your blog and scrolling down the homepage I was stopped in my tracks by these photos. I actually did gasp. Now, I do love a flower photo (and, of course, the real things too), I'll admit it, but...these photographs are absolutely breathtaking, they have left me with a smile on my face.
    Thank you

    PS...definitely will be checking out Buly 1803 next time I'm in Paris (which hopefully won't be that long a wait).
