Close to Home

Well, once again were are not allowed to go more than on kilometer from home on foot. After having lived here for seven years, I thought I’d photographed it to death, but light changes, seasons change, we see things from different vantage points. Here are some shots from within a kilometer of home.

Paris

Aside

It’s been about a year since I was last in Paris. I love to just walk when I’m there, to explore the neighborhoods and parks, to sit in a café and watch people. The galleries and famous sites can wait. This is a favorite pastime of the locals and I understand why. But today the streets are empty. It’s hard to imagine this most vibrant and civilized city, the master of café culture, empty. The cafés are closed. There is no one to appreciate the perfect architecture, no one in the galleries. Here is a bit of a look at the Paris that was and the one that will be again.
