Trip to Switzerland– Zurich

At the end of October, I made a special five-day trip to Switzerland. The first two and half days I spent in Zurich, which was sponsored by the Zurich Tourism Office.  I had visited Zurich once before about 10 years ago just for an afternoon and honestly, I wasn’t very impressed. The city was nice enough and very clean, but it seemed dull except for the beauty of the lake. After my trip last month, I was beyond impressed and now Zurich has made it into my favorite list of European cities. ...

Happy Thanksgiving 2021

Here is my annual Thanksgiving blog, which I've published before. Enjoy! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and for the last seven years I have published this French Thanksgiving vocabulary list, courtesy of my former New York French teacher, Luc Georges. Since Thanksgiving is not an official holiday in France, many ex-pats postpone their Thanksgiving dinner for Friday or Saturday, but some are traditionalists and make it on Thursday. I will be going to a friend's house Saturd...

Restaurant La Halle aux Grains at Bourse de Commerce

There’s been a lot of buzz about the restaurant, Restaurant La Halle aux Grains inside the new Bourse de la Commerce Museum in the press and from friends and tour clients, who have gone and raved about it.   I took some tour clients last week to Bourse de la Commerce Museum and they wanted me to select a restaurant to have lunch after, and I thought it would be a perfect place, since they were foodies and had gone to many of the top restaurants during their stay in Paris.   I had visi...

Le Théorème de Narcisse- Jean Michel Othoniel 

I’ve always admired the work of artist and sculptor Jean Michel Othoniel ever since I saw his Palais Royal metro kiosk in the early 2000s and have followed his work since. I have also had the pleasure of meeting him socially several times through a mutual friend.   Jean Michel Othoniel works mostly with Venetian blown glass globes in jewel tone colors and metallic finishes, creating impressive sculptures.   I still vividly remember the wonderful retrospective of his work at the Pompid...

Night Photos on Quai d”Orsay and Quai de Voltaire

In late September a tour client and her friends invited me to their hotel down the street from the d’Orsay Museum for an after-dinner drink. I left about 9:45 pm to return home. It was a lovely, balmy night and instead of taking the metro home, I decided it was too lovely outside to go underground. I strolled along the Quai d”Orsay and Quai de Voltaire,  admiring the beautifully lit, grand buildings, and boats gliding on the Seine. I walked all the way to the Louvre, snapping photos along ...

FIAC- Hors Les Murs 2021

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s super Calder! Actually, it’s a gigantic red dragon, standing in the Place Vendome. The striking sheet metal sculpture, The Flying Dragon from 1975, was one of Calder’s last major pieces before he died in 1976. It was fun to capture it at on all sides with its sharp angles and intense red, which were an interesting contrast to the symmetry and monochromatic color tone of Place Vendome.   The Flying Dragon is one of a series of artworks presented for FIAC, th...

Vincent’s Art Opening- There Never Was A Narrative

Last Thursday night was the opening of my partner Vincent Gagliostro’s new exhibition, There Never Was A Narrative at Galerie NEC in the Marais. Friends, family, collectors, blog readers, and clients of the gallery owners flocked to the gallery from 5pm-9pm and sipped white wine and Champagne while pondering the art. Cousins of mine from New York were there as well as a blog reader who recognized me on the metro a few days before also came. Vincent looked smart and smashing in a new plaid ...

Le Philharmonie Paris Abstract Photos

 The architecture of Le Philharmonie, the recently built concert hall designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, located in the cultural complex La Villette, has always fascinated me. I am always at my most inspired after seeing great photo exhibitions, and after viewing the mind-blowing photos of Sebastião Salgado at  Le Philharmonie  in August, I explored the perimeter of the building on three different levels. I like the sharp angles and textures of the glass, cement, and metal and point...

Autumn in Giverny- Part 1

I took a tour client on Monday to Giverny for a tour of the Monet’s house and garden. It was a crisp, sunny autumn day, the perfect day you dream about when visiting Giverny. I had never been this late to Giverny (it closes November 1) and the color palette of the flowers and plants was so different than what I had experienced before. There were still some dahlias sprouting and other flowers in shades of purple, marigold, and pure white. The weeping willows on the pond were now a mustard colo...
