Rodin Museum and Garden

The Rodin Museum is one my favorites, because it’s not so much a traditionally, stuffy museum but more a beautifully curated house and garden dotted with some of Auguste Rodin’s most famous sculptures. A walk into a room here, a stroll through the garden path… every couple feet a new work awaits! Paris actually has two museums […]

That staircase! And the chandelier! Wow, this is such a beautiful place!

yes, the rodin museum is one of my favorites because the museum itself is so beautiful. thanks for stopping by!

[…] MUST SEE? Hmm.. hard to pick one, so I’ll go with my three most favorite museums. The spooky crypt and upper level viewing deck from the Pantheon, the charming mansion of Musee Jacquemart-Andre (check out posts 1 and 2), and the sculpture filled gardens at Musee Rodin. […]

Hi sher i love your photos! please share what kinda lens, camera you are using please! =)

SherJuly 27, 2014 - 9:30 pm

Hey Steph – thanks! I use a combination of a canon DSLR MKD III and an iphone 5s. The canon is a bit of a splurge and honestly I reach for my iphone 90% of the time! :)

Arc de Triomphe

While in Paris, our hotel was under a 5 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe so luckily we saw this gorgeous view a lot. The above photo was taken on our way out to dinner. I liked the shot and couldn’t decide on color vs. black and white, so there you have it! Both. You […]

Yeah, it was great! Super convenient + a gorgeous view :)

Thanks for stopping by!

[…] WHERE TO STAY? You can’t go wrong with a stay at the elegant and timeless Prince de Galles hotel, steps away from the Champs-Elysées and Arc de Triomphe monument. […]

[…] picked the Prince de Galles hotel for our stay, located near the Champs-Elysées and steps from the Arc de Triomphe. The elegant boutique hotel was such a luxurious stay – our room was large by Parisian standards […]

Notre Dame de Paris

Although the gargoyles are Notre Dame’s main draw, the church interior is cavernous and majestic and certainly not to be missed! I took a couple quick snapshots of the stained glass windows during a walk around the pews. The church interior is accessible via the main entrance and although most people immediately queue outside along […]

More great pics. I would advise a longer visit though for more of the effect. I love coming in the early morning and having the place mainly to myself and walking around. Sitting through Mass is also nice as it helps give you just a bit of that feeling of what it must have been like to sit there hundreds of years ago.

SherMarch 3, 2014 - 3:51 pm

ooh sitting in Mass must have been nice. Early morning is always a great time too – little to no crowds!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Gargoyles of Notre Dame

The Catholic cathedral Notre Dame stands imposingly on the eastern half of  Île de la Cité. About as iconic as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris is one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and well worth a visit. The church interior is massive and typically clogged with church goers and tourists […]

These photos are amazing! I’m a bit claustrophobic, but I think I’d brave the narrow climb for that view!

SherMarch 21, 2014 - 7:46 pm

haha, it definitely felt a little squeezed up at the top.

Eglise Sainte Chapelle

Eglise Sainte Chapelle In the heart of Paris, on the Ile de la Cite island, lies the Holy Chapel of Eglise Sainte Chapelle, a medieval Gothic chapel. The church was built sometime after 1239, commissioned by King Louis IX of France to house his Passion relics, among which included Christ’s Crown of Thorns. Sainte Chapelle […]

This is a really beautiful church. I hate the lines/security to get in but it is really amazing. You got wonderful pictures, ours did not turn out half as great as yours!

SherMarch 3, 2014 - 3:51 pm

I agree the security was a pain but the line seemed to move decently fast and the stained glass is too gorgeous to miss!
And thank you!! I love photography so sometimes my aim is more to get great pictures than to eat/see/shop/etc ;)

JaniceMarch 27, 2014 - 6:39 am

I just loveeee stained glass windows in European churches and you’ve captured them beautifully. So glad to have stumbled across your blog! :]
