Two Men on the Metro

Lao Tzu Quote

Paris Metro Underground, 2012

This was a rare moment when the escalator I was on was empty and the two men going the opposite direction were the only ones in my camera frame. A perfect moment. Their heads down, not looking up. The stark track lighting of the underground. Random pieces of art trying to liven the dreary environment.

Where are you heading in 2013?

It is a mistake…

Daily Delight Meets Oprah

Paris, France

I hope you’re enjoying this DAILY DELIGHT project as much as I am! I love the combination of Parisian images, inspiring words and compelling design. It calls on all of my artistic sensibilities and allows me to stretch my creativity. A perfect combination and right in line with my goals for this project. Even if I’m the only one benefitting, I’m thrilled to have found a new creative outlet.

This image was shot as I walked up and out of the metro. The sky was beautifully grey-blue with low hanging clouds. The fashionable Parisian women were engaged in conversation. The famous metro sign was perfectly positioned. It was one of those moments you smile knowing it’s captured for all time.

How Much Freedom Do You Have?

The journey is long on the metro moving walkways in Paris. Getting from one station to another, making your connection and navigating the underground maze is an adventure in itself.

This image was shot on our way to the Bastille Farmers Market, one of the most amazing and authentic markets in Paris. Less tourist. More local. Simply incredible. We visited there twice during our two-week stay in Paris, one of those times being on my birthday!

Feel free to pin and share the image! Be inspired. Be free.

A Thousand Little Choices

The Parisian subway system is a marvel, winding its way above and below city streets. It will take you almost anywhere you want to go in Paris and even to the outskirts of the city.

The challenge is making sure you know where you want to go and how to get there… and then getting the right ticket for the right train at the right time in the right direction. That, my friends, is the greatest challenge of all.

A thousand little choices at every turn. Not much different than our lives. We never know the impact our “little” choices today will have on our future… so choose well. Choose very well.

DAILY DELIGHT: Paris Desktop Wallpaper

Ever since my first 365 challenge in 2010, I’ve wanted to find another 365 project that incorporated the best of my photography, design and inspiration. After much soul searching and journaling, I came up with the idea of DAILY DELIGHT. With the fresh start and creative push of a new year, I’m finally ready to release it into the world.

My intention is to release a new image from Paris every day. Some will have quotes and inspiration, others will just focus on the imagery. Some will become free desktop and iphone wallpaper downloads, others will be just for your viewing pleasure. Most will be part of a series as I have an incredible set of over 20 photo series I plan to process and share from my Parisian adventure.

Ultimately, my goal is to provide DAILY DELIGHT to my favorite readers. Are you in? It’s 2013 and time to freshen up your wallpaper! If you like it, leave a comment and let me know. And I’d love if you’d share on Pinterest, Twitter or Facebook too!

This is my first foray into creating desktop wallpaper, so bear with me as I work out the kinks. I’ve included links below to the most widely used desktop dimensions. If you would like to request a different size, just let me know! I’ve even included one for the iPhone (or other mobile device).

Is your life worth watching? If not, make it so!
