Mr. Selfish and I went to Notre Dame in the 4th Arrondissement many times during our stay in Paris. Not only because we found it beautiful but because everyone who came to visit wanted to see it – not that I blame them. It is lovely. This post is dedicated to Notre Dame.
I was born in Paris, France. I lived here until I was four years-old, at which time my parents moved the family to good ol’ Hampton, Virginia. This is part of the reason why I wanted to spend six weeks in Paris during our year abroad. Plus, it has been great to be able to visit and get to know my Parisian family – my cousin, aunt, uncle, and grandmother all still live here.
I had scanned in some old photos from Paris years ago from my parents’ photo albums. I was looking through them the other day while in Paris and figured it would be fun to attempt to reenact some of the iconic ones. Here are the results. My current camera lenses and my dad’s old camera lenses are certainly different and I’m a lot bigger now, so the perspective is a little off. In any case, I hope you enjoy them!
