Paris at night. The lights of the Eiffel Tower reflected in the Seine.

I first visited Paris in 1971, on my honeymoon. since then, the artist's muse and I have had many happy times there.

Here are some of my pictures from Paris. Most are from long ago. From 1997 to 1999. So long ago, that they were shot on film. I hope that I have captured some of the essence of this wonderful place.

Some technical notes: The original pictures were shot with miscellaneous film cameras, including a cardboard "jetable." The film was scanned in with a Nikon film scanner. The post processing was done with LightZone-3 and numerous other editing programs.
