Wanderlust, Paris edition… my favorite city in the world. A few photographs from my 3 week trip in 2006.
Equal parts creepy and cool– face installation at the Luxembourg Gardens
Equal parts creepy and reverent– inside St. Chapelle Church
Sunlight and stoplights
A quiet moment in greenery
: a strong desire to travel
Throwing it back (it is Thursday, after all– #TBT) 7 years with these pictures from my first trip to D.C., because I feel like jet-setting so much it almost hurts right now. Domestic or international, it don’t matter.
Let me tell you, the best way to see the D.C. monuments is during the hours after a heavy rainfall. Those hours being 1-4 a.m., when the rest of the city (and tourists) sleep. Bring a tripod (I love mine) with you.
A clear view of the Washington Monument.
No photo bombers allowed.
A quiet moment at the Lincoln Memorial.
In awe. Thomas Jefferson Memorial.
There was something so magical about walking from memorial to memorial with not a soul in sight. My friends and I were able to quietly enjoy the significance of the monuments without the sounds, smells, and crowds of people normally filling the spaces. It felt surreal, almost spiritual, and most definitely breath-taking.
