River Seine and view of Paris from the West Bank - Photograph by Tim Irving
The Seine - A View of Paris from the West Bank
After putting it off for weeks, I finally arranged transport and accommodation for a week in Paris. Booking flights and hotels over the internet makes me anxious, I long for the days of a travel agent. Dates, times, booking numbers, invoice numbers and worst of all, credit card numbers. Anyway it's all done, and I'll be travelling with my assistant at the end of August. The mornings and evenings will be spent taking photographs, the rest of the time sightseeing.


  1. have a great time Tim and i look forward to the photographs, we are hopefully back there this October, can't wait so much to see in that wonderful city.

  2. Paris. I sigh longingly. Four times I've stepped off the train into Paris, each visit only a tasty sliver of all the possibilities. I need another lifetime just for that city. Such good news to hear you are going again. Like Al, I also look forward to the photographs. Your images of Paris are always from a thoughtful point of view, not just a bland post card, and give us some of the details (like the brass door plaque of the corsett shop) as if we ourselves were on the sidewalks.

    “There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached. Paris was always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought to it."

    Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
