It’s been a while since I’ve submitted a story for your daily inspiration, so I decided to share my recent trip with you. I got married last month and for our honeymoon, we decided to keep it classical and romantic by visiting France (mostly Paris and Lyon). I brought my trusty M9 and my 50 Lux with me. It’s always a challenge trying to photograph while on your honeymoon. You can’t just go on sprees and take pictures anytime you want. I managed to sneak in some photos during down-times.
The conception of France is that the french aren’t very fond of Americans. I found this to be the opposite in fact. Everyone was extremely nice and kind to us. In Paris and Lyon, when you have dinner at a restaurant, the more you order, the more the waiters start to like you! In fact, not ordering a bottle of wine in a brasserie is frowned upon. Between the hours of 2pm and 6pm, everything closes down. I could definitely get used to this lifestyle. In France, you take long 4 hour lunch breaks. You eat lots of food, drink lots of wine, take a nap, and then go back to work later in the evening.
All shots were taken with the M9 and 50 Lux. I’ve slightly changed my treatment from the last time I posted on this site. Anyway, I wanted to share some photos from our honeymoon in this beautiful country. Hope you find these interesting.
