Marais Architectural Details

I’ve stayed close to home in recent weeks and rediscovered the architectural wonders of the Marais. I recently had to do a slide show and lecture about the Marais for an organization, so I took new photos of familiar buildings, casting my eye again but in a refreshed way. In case you didn’t know, a large swath of the Marais has former palaces and mansions that were built in the late 1500s to almost 1700. These gorgeous buildings, called hotels, are made of limestone and have ornate details su...

Fujikura Vista Pro Shafts (Driver, Hybrid and Iron)

Vista Pro is Fujikura’s #1 clubfitter line. It provides golfers with an affordable aftermarket option. MSRP is $125 – Woods, $55 – Hybrids, and $50- Irons Launched in 1999, Fujikura describes the original Vista Pro shaft lineup as the “first true fitting shaft in North America.” That first Vista Pro was a flighted lineup available in weights from 50 to 90 grams.

Finite

"That's all there is, there won't be any more." Those are words that will cause me to really evaluate how I enjoy something. Whether it's something as trivial as the last scoop of pistachio ice cream in the house late on a Saturday night or more somber, like the last book from a favorite author who'd recently passed. It makes me want to savor it properly and stretch out the enjoyment. This was the entire theme of a short, half-hour National Geographic documentary, entitled "The Last Roll of K...

Recipes: Apple desserts are delicious and fill the house with comforting aromas

There’s something about apple desserts that makes them remarkably alluring. The fruit’s sweet-tart personality builds flavors that, in all fairness, are hard to beat this time of year. Plus the smell of cinnamon and other spices are comforting. For the home cook, there is joy in the simplicity of apple-based desserts. Sure, there’s time spent peeling and coring, but it can become a pleasing Zen-like motion with the right background music. When it comes to which apples to use, some varieties are ...

Aligning Brands With Shifting Demographics

These are challenging times for brand. One challenge is that of demography. A challenge that requires brands to leverage strategic dexterity and insightful planning. Demography is the study of events that shape the structure of human populations, such as births, age, deaths, fertility rates or income. There has always been this mantra that “demography is destiny.” Accompanying this mantra is the idea that the only events that can change the arc of demographic destiny are global catastrophes o...

Christmas in Paris 2020-Printemps

Today I am featuring photos of the holiday windows at Printemps for the Christmas in Paris 2020 series.   The theme of the windows this season is “Let’s share Christmas”.

Scenes in the four windows with animations include Christmas at a chalet, on ski slopes, and on the Paris rooftops. Just a reminder, if you still would like to order holiday gifts of either Eye...

Christmas in Paris 2020- Galeries Lafayette

Here’s the first of  my annual blog posts about the Christmas decorations and shop windows in Paris.   Instead of saving the best for last, I’m giving you the best, first. Hands down  Galeries Lafayette has the best Christmas windows this year . They are colorful, delightful, fun, enchanting, and whimsical.   The theme for 2020 is the Christmas Voyage led by Céleste, a young intrepid explorer who finds a vintage airplane on the roof of Galeries Lafayette that belongs to the daring ...

Trip to Nimes

In the beginning of October, I took a last minute trip to Nimes because another trip I was supposed to go on was cancelled. The train fare was only 40€ round trip and the ride was an easy three-hour voyage from the Gare de Lyon station, which is two metro stops from my apartment.   Nimes was a significant city of the Roman Empire dating back from 28 B.C. with a population of close to 55,000 people. A major number of  structures from the Roman reign in France are still standing including an...

Jacqueline Ngo MPII and Little Africa

Jacqueline Ngo MPII is on a mission which I greatly admire.   Her company, Little Africa, is dedicated to all things African in Paris. In the last five years Jacqueline has tirelessly been promoting the rich culture of the African community in Paris. She has accomplished this in numerous ways, first by creating a Little Africa tour, which is called La Goutte D’or in the 18th arrondissement just below Montmartre, and she shares the vivacious, colorful, neighborhood, that very few tourists ...

Chateau Clarisse Wine

When I stayed at Villa Clarisse in Ile de Ré in September, I received a complimentary bottle of Chateau Clarisse wine. I brought it home with me and shared it with Vincent. We both really liked the taste of it and longed for more.   Last month I received an email from Chateau Clarisse announcing that James Suckling, a major wine critic and wine connoisseur, had reviewed a few vintages of Chateau Clarisse and gave them high marks, rating them from 90 to 94 out of a hundred.   The revie...

A Holiday Proposal

It’s holiday gift time, and what could be better than the gift of Paris. Most people were denied the joy of visiting Paris this year with the travel restrictions, so what better way to remind you or people on your gift list of the city than a great photo.  It’s been a challenging year to say the least for everyone I know. Personally, it’s been challenging because I’ve seen my tour business, from which I make most of my income from, dwindle to practically zero since March. A good thing to c...

Comment on morning glory breakfast cake by Therry Neilsen-Steinhardt

In reply to Lauren. This is insanely delicious. I did have a problem or two, however. I couldn’t get a cup of grated apple or carrot out of the single apple or 3 carrots, so added another apple. That may have led to my other problem. While the cake was cooked through ( clean toothpick), it wasn’t solid. Shook like a bowl full of calls foot jelly. It’s the fridge now and we’ll see how it looks tomorrow. Also I always substitute Chinese Five Spice for cinnamon, and the star anise, ...

Comment on mom’s apple cake by DriverB

Made last night. Used six large Fuji apples and thought it was going to be too much, but it turned out perfectly. A great way to start using up some of the stash we picked over the weekend! Also, using a melon baller to remove the cores was a revelation – I’m definitely going with that method in the future.

Comment on apple sharlotka by Lee

Despite having high hopes, this was not to my taste. I usually adore baked goods that are more apple than baked good, but not this one. Perhaps it was using a mix of Fuji’s and honeycrisps and galas which are sweeter and possibly juicier than Granny Smiths. I found the cake too sweet and took much much longer than 60 minutes. Onwards!

Recipes: Fresh figs can be used to make dozens of delicious dishes; here are 3

A ripe fig is a joyous thing. The multitude of tiny seeds in its interior make a jolly crunch when molars grind the tiny gems. Each noisy bit blends with the honeyed notes of the surrounding flesh. The aroma is alluring too, a rose-petal scent that encourages consuming more of the tasty fruit. When and which Black Mission and Brown Turkey fig varieties are the easiest ones to find in the marketplace. They are generally available June to early November, but growers report that due to increased he...

REVIEW: Market Pantry Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream and Apple Crisp Ice Cream

What are Market Pantry Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream and Apple Crisp Ice Cream? One has pumpkin cheesecake-flavored ice cream (made with pumpkin puree) with a graham cracker swirl. The other features artificially flavored apple crisp ice cream swirled with caramel and oatmeal pieces. Both are seasonal varieties at Target. How are they? Well, let’s start with the Pumpkin Cheesecake one. If you force-fed this pint to me and said it’s pumpkin cheesecake-flavored, I’d grab the pint from your ha...

Colorful Mesh Fruit Bowl

The refrigerator door opens, and an apple inside spots an unfamiliar fruit-filled container on the counter. As the bananas and other apples return her gaze from afar, the little Fuji feels an overwhelming sense of envy at their high-design hangout: a powder-coated steel bowl. Without warning, a hand surrounds the apple and transports her to join the fruit she envied just moments ago. Sitting up taller, the apple takes in her new fresh-maintaining mesh surroundings with pride as the fridge closes...

How well does Fujifilm’s Acros-R film simulation compare to real 35mm Fuji Acros 100II film?

Fujifilm cameras appealed to me several years ago because of the retro styling and film camera like controls for shutter speed, ISO and aperture. I also loved the ability to use Fujifilm film […] The post How well does Fujifilm’s Acros-R film simulation compare to real 35mm Fuji Acros 100II film? appeared first on DIY Photography.
