Hey gang, sorry I’ve been away so long — I am one busy bee lately!
Wanted to catch you up on this (not so) weekly series and show you what I’ve been looking at. Hope you enjoy this set.
Hope you enjoyed this set everyone, and I hope you have a lovely day!
There you are! I’ve been missing your weekly, beautiful photos. I immediately recognized where we met for our Le Marais tour. Best regards, Margaret and Bill Roberts
I know, I made you wait for this one! Bad blogger, bad blogger! :-) Great to hear from you both, hope you’re doing well.
Good to have you back. The set was tres bon! Auvoir.
Thanks a lot, I appreciate you stopping by!
Beautiful. I love looking at your photots, Corey. Thank you so much for all your time 💁🏻☕️💫
Thanks to you for commenting! I appreciate the kinds words and support. Have a great day.
Thanks for the comment Val!
We were there in February 2018 and stayed right down the street from Bouillon Chartier. We enjoyed the atmosphere very much. Reasonably priced. I love watching your videos. We loved Paris and want to return!
Thanks so much I appreciate the support and interest! I hope to make lots more videos for you. :-)
Beautiful photos of my beloved Paris even though there is nothing Art Deco in there. ;)
No Art Deco – well that’s just a huge oversight on my part. :-) I shall rectify!!
I shall be on épingles et aiguilles! ;)
Wonderful post, couldn’t help but smile when you mention Chez Julien and knowing you will be meeting my sister there in less than a month. Thank you, Corey, for ALL you do in sharing your love of Paris with us
Thanks to you Mimi for the support and encouragement! I appreciate it.
wonderful photographs – real Paris – love them all !!
Ah yes, real Paris – thanks for noticing! There are enough shots of the Eiffel Tower in the world after all… :-)
Thank you again Corey, for giving us all another superb look at Paris through your eyes! You are simply the best!
Thanks Carroll that’s lovely of you to say. Hope you had a nice Easter weekend.
So glad to see your post in my email again! Photos are beautiful! I’ve added Chez Julien and Cafeotheque to my trip lists for July and November this year! I’ll be in touch as soon as I decide which tours I want to take. Thanks for your lovely blog presence!
Thanks Cheryl, would love to see you again. Hope you had a lovely Easter weekend!
Thank you for this wonderful post. Your eye and passion for this city is infectious and inspiring. I fall in love with Paris more each day through your eyes.
So proud of you Co.
Hi, Corey’s mom. (I trust that I can respond to your comment on here!) I’ve taken two of Corey’s tours and just love him. His love for Paris inspires me, and I’ve been going there for over 40 years. He is a wonderful writer and photographer and all-around lovely human being! When I found his blog about the 2015 terrorists’ attacks in Paris, I knew I had to meet him. I was just about 10 minutes away from the attacks. His beautiful writing about it touched my heart!
That’s very sweet, thanks Cheryl. I’m fortunate to be able to share Paris with folks like you. :-)
How would I go about finding Corey’s piece on the terrorist attack?
Hi, Corey here. You can see that post via this link https://afrenchfryeinparis.com/2015/11/16/the-city-of-light-dimmed/
Truly gorgeous photos and we love the weekly walk with you. We watch together on Sunday morning (our time, not live). Thanks again. Karen & Dave, Newcastle, Australia.
Hi Karen and Dave, so great to have you watching. I appreciate the good vibes and I very much enjoyed that bottle of wine. :-)
Fabulous set & I especially love the Chez Julien & the guy ‘reaching’ for the stars/moon :)
My passion for Paris has resumed (thanks Corey) & now I can start planning my return trip!
I too look forward to the weekly ‘Sunday’ walk through Paris. Cheers, Michelle, Walpeup, Australia.
Hey Michelle, thanks for the comment! Would love to see you in Paris one day. Until then I hope to make lots more videos for you…even though I know it’s tough to watch live over there!
I truly enjoy how you see Paris, Corey; this set is no exception! For the record, as a longtime SCUBA diver, I would love to have a seahorse on my desk to look at every day. I’ve added De Bouche à Oreille to my shopping list. Thanks for the head’s up!
Cool, check out that store and you can let me know what you think. Maybe the seahorse will still be waiting for you there!
Corey, another wonder-FULL collection of precious Paris shots. Some of them well known (and photographed by yours truly), others seen with an artist’s eye, different and unusual – all of them charming, heart-warming and ‘real’. Love that you always give the location, my ca 1mio pics are literally ‘all over the place’ and looking for something I’ll never find it. Especially love the Palais Royal, the close-up of a métro station and the disapproving head of Mr. Hugo. Vivianne is ALWAYS worth a detour….
You’re a gem, my friend. Happy Easter
Thanks Kiki, hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. I’m glad you enjoy these little glimpses into the daily life of Paris. :-)
🎵“When you see a Guy
Reach for stars in the sky
You can bet that he’s doing it for some Doll….”🎶
Nice – send along an audio clip of you singing that and I’ll post it in the next installment. :-) Appreciate the comment, have a good one!
Did you catch those crazy clouds after that quick shower?
I don’t believe I did!
You joined our table in Chartier two years ago and you told us about this site. We have been a fan of yours ever since with all your great photos and captions,
Wow hello David that’s great! Refresh my memory – where are you from?
I am from the uk and have lived in Paris for 20 years and the lady I was with is from Montpellier, we were on a table that just seats 3 as there is a pillar blocking the 4th place, we started chatting right away and I checked your site out when I got to my appart. and I just love your great photos and your enthusiasm for the City of Light, you make one appreciate that we live in such a beautiful city.
The one of the statue reaching for the moon is a special stroke of genius! But there are so many others here — the Palais Royal, Victor Hugo’s bust — that are worthy of framing. Gorgeous, gorgeous photos.
Really appreciate that coming from you!!
How glad am I that you are back!! I particularly love the guy on his horse, reaching for the moon, of course. But what I absolutely love about your photos, is the old-fashioned charm that I find on no others! Thanks Corey!
Thanks for the great compliment! I’m a nostalgic guy at heart so I think an antique, old fashioned look for Paris photos fits well. Also having come from an arts background, I take the editing of my photos just as seriously as the shooting of them because I feel like I’m “painting a picture” in a way. So glad you’re into it! All the best.
Hi Corey! You covered a lot of places I have been in this one…but with a great perspective. Next time I will look for some of these things I missed! My goal is to try to check out all of your “How I Saw Paris…” segments. It will take a while, but I hope to have covered all of them at some point. Merci for all you do!
Thanks Phyllis! I one day hope to have a fancy new website that will have a section specifically for binging on the How I Saw Paris series. So many projects to envision for the future!
Thanks I appreciate it! I used to do one of these posts every week but lately other projects have slowed down the pace. I hope to post another soon! I appreciate you leaving a comment. :-)
Is there a way to see the photos all the way back from the beginning? Please let me know:)
Hi, thanks for the kind words! I’m so glad you’re enjoying my photos; it’s a really fun creative outlet for me (I studied Fine Arts painting in college, which is maybe why Dreama and I are such kindred spirits). You can see the entire photo series by using the search function at the bottom of the page and typing “How I Saw Paris”. Or clicking directly on this link should do the trick: https://afrenchfryeinparis.com/?s=how+i+saw+paris
Thanks, Corey – from one fellow artist to another :) I love your photos!!
I focus just on the walking tour part; the rest is a bit less exciting. :-)
Ok then we will keep you in mind for next time! If you have rates available can you email me those? Id love to do a couple paintings or pastels from your photos but just for my own use. Is that ok?
You can fill out this quick form at https://afrenchfryeinparis.com/guided-tours-of-paris/ and then I can email you tour options. Feel free to paint from my photos, and if you feel like sharing please send me the images when you’re done!
Thanks Corey! Yes I will share my art with you if I paint from your photos :) Thank you so much! Julie
Thanks so much. I certainly take it seriously and as you know it’s all about evolving over time and finding your voice. Luckily I have plenty of subject matter all around to keep me inspired!
Yes, Paris is filled with beauty everywhere you look! You’re very fortunate to live there! Do you do tours including flights, hotels etc or only walking tours?
