I just can’t resist photographing the Seine. Whenever I cross the river on one of those enchanting little footbridges, my camera comes out — it’s like a Pavlovian response.
Except, instead of photographs, he’s written short essays — vignettes on different quarters of this city.
Though I’ve only read a few scattered chapters, already I can tell that this is a book to dip into for a quick, satisfying hit of the City of Light: the elegant anachronisms, the hidden histories, the beauty.
Are you ever Paris-sick, mes amis? (That’s like being homesick, but for Paris.) If so, I’m delighted to announce that I’m giving away four copies of this decadent little book.
If you’re interested in receiving a copy, please leave a comment below. I’ll choose the winners at random next Wednesday, April 13, 2011. Good luck!
Update: Renée, Jeanne, Sylvia and Karen Albro are the winners. Thanks for playing!
