I think it’s high time A French Frye in Paris got a recurring weekly segment. You guys deserve a dependable dose of Paris, and I’m apparently sick of the 11 minutes of free time I get each day.
With all the social media platforms out there, some of the photos I spend so much time nurturing and coddling get lost in the shuffle. And lots of them never make it onto the blog. So starting now, each Wednesday I’ll be recapping the photos I’ve put on social media the past week. Sort of a photo journal, I suppose.
If you already follow me on Facebook, Instagram, etc, you may see some repeats. But in these weekly recaps I’ll be adding captions with info or random thoughts that will be exclusive to this series. So there’s that. Enjoy and as usual hit me up in the comments!
*Don’t forget if you want to catch these photos in real time as I post them, follow me on Facebook or Instagram by scrolling down further. Have a good one!
I love your photographic eye of Paris…such unique images. Yes, a great dose of Paris!
Thank you David, I appreciate that. It’s not easy to get unique shots of Paris these days, and I revel in the challenge to do so. I’m glad you’re enjoying a look at the more “personal” side of the city. Take care!
Ces photos sont épatantes.
Merci Vincent !
Delighted to know that you will be posting regularly on Wednesday! I enjoy your photos and comments – my husband and I visit Paris yearly, and your work enriches each visit as we see in person what you have photographed and written about. Merci!
That’s wonderful to hear Wanda, thank you. I know what you mean, dreaming of something in a foreign city and then seeing it in person…there’s no better feeling. I also get that buzz when I see a famous painting in a museum. Thanks for your comment and for following along.
You’ve started off Wednesdays with a bang. Each photo invites a comment, but for the moment I’ll keep them in my head. I guess, distilled, it’s the subtle and not as subtle contrasts in each.
Thanks Lee. I look forward to giving you a fresh set of perspectives each week! And yes contrast is one thing that really interests me: light and dark, warm and cool, quiet and busy….
“This guy could turn anything into art.” Ditto for you and your photos, Corey. So thrilled to hear I’ll be seeing even more of them!
Well Heather, if you’re saying I’m like…the new Picasso…then who am I to interfere with that assertion… :-)
OK Corey, that does it: I’m booking a trip stat. I missed the Picasso Museum in 2014 (reopening was delayed) and your photos have cemented my resolve to see it.
Also, I look forward to your weekly reviews. Great idea and one that I appreciated.
Yay Barbra, I’m glad I could send a bit of Paris inspiration your way! I’m excited about this new feature and I can’t wait to share future weeks’ worth of photos. When you do make it over here, drop me a line if you’re interested in touring part of the city with me. Take care!
Your site is great! And wowee-I love the Picasso museum stairwell photos.
Thanks a lot, I’m glad to find someone who loves stairs as much as me. 🙂
Indeed–I love stairs–almost as much as hot chocolate :) Have you been to Angelina’s? Or is there an even better (more hidden treasure) place for hot chocolate?
Angelina probably can’t be beat in Paris. I’ve tried others that are lovely, like La Jacobine and Un Dimanche in Paris, but Angelina always blows me away. Thanks for following along and leaving a comment!
And thank you for the response :)
Bonjour Corey, thanks for the ‘double dose’ :), never tire of seeing photos and introductions to new places in Paris. Have a nice day and discover more … Penny
Thanks Penny, happy to have you following along as I discover these little gems!
Corey I depend on your beautiful photos to keep me connected to that well of emotion and excitement Paris inspires in me– until I can visit again!
Thanks so much Maria I’m happy to hear that. I know it’s important to keep those Paris dreams alive! I’m glad I can help do that for you.
Love your photographs. I too was told many years ago by an architect to ‘always look up’ and in the darkest corners or you’ll miss the best and the most interesting sights to be seen.
Yes that is great advice Maureen! I have to remind myself of it from time to time. Thanks for your kind words and especially for sharing this post. I appreciate the support!

One to share.
Wonderful, Maestro! Sharing immédiatement with the French Girl in Seattle Facebook community. They already know you, and they will just love this! Merci, Corey. — Veronique (a.k.a. French Girl in Seattle)
Oh thank you so much for sharing this French Girl! I’ve gotten some new followers as a result. I appreciate your support!
Your photography captivates me. I love how you play with “light and dark, warm and cool, quiet and busy”. There is a mystifying quality to your photos that transports me right into the heart of each one. When I arrive in Paris, a city I have longed to visit all my life, I would relish taking a tour with “French Frey”! I know from your art and passion for Paris that it will be one of my most treasured experiences. Thank you.
Wow, great blog and such wonderful photos! Keep it up.
