02/17 - Paris Day 2

One of the downsides to being in Paris in February is the weather. While we avoided the deep freeze that New York experienced, we met a humid cold that chilled us to our core.

Being our second day in Paris, we wandered some side streets and decided to hit the biggest ticket item we wanted to see: the Eiffel Tower. Seeing it in person is nothing short of spectacular. If I could recommend one thing: sit on a bench nearby, eat a simple baguette and take it in slowly.

We didn’t go up the Eiffel Tower today. It was quite frankly, freezing. Instead, I tried out the most amazing present in the world: a (new to me) Hasselblad 500c. It’s a totally interchangeable medium format camera with a shutter that tells you when it’s taken a photo. I can’t wait to see what photos were made with this camera.
