Paris from the eyes of a Lumber Jerk
- as requested a little photo safari from Paris.

A little former Nun monastery, where it’s now possible to enjoy a quiet moment in noisy Paris.

Ok, here are some wood… Notice what happens if you enter.

He reminded me of Homere, but no matter, I loved the texture.


Inspiration, peace, time.

Need no words.

Grand, grace.


Beauty (need a doctor…).


Perhaps for to long!

Luxemburg park, I love this place.

A quiet moment of sailing in Paris.

New smart phone…

My favorite spot.

I’m not the only one with a hat…


Beauty, life love – and yes the woman I’m going to marry – Caroline.

A quiet moment.

Beeing watched…

Since some of you have phone connections, I will split it up here, and continue in a new post.
The link comes here: Paris photo safari II

Hope you enjoyed the first part,

I love the Luxemburg gardens as well. one of the most peaceful places on earth. The chi is strong there…
There is also a “deli” in the roundabout there that has the best croissant I had in Paris. you can sit on the second floor, eat it and watch the world go by.

Excellent pictures Mads! I’m jealous!!
I LOVE history…..The stories some of these places could tell….if they could only speak.
I’m sure though….standing in front of them, staring at them…they DO speak!

Looking forward to the next post.

Great photos!
What camera are you using, lenses?

You have a great eye for an interesting photo, and some look like postcards!

Great photos Mads! The eye of an architect and artist.
So much history and beauty in that city, I would love to visit.
Those little model boats are so nice, makes me want to build one again.
I enjoyed it, thanks brother!

Hi every one,
I’m so happy you liked the tour de Paris – I was not sure if I should post it…
Moshel, yes the chi are so strong, I’ll go and look for that place to eat crossant next month.
Tony, you are so right, this city talks, and it’s full of life in a warm way.
Helluvawreck, glad to open your eyes a little for this wonderful place.
Rivergirl, it was acually me who bought it in the airport, but she liked it a lot, like me.
Randy, Canon Eos 400D and a Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM (the lens are the secret, it’s really cool).
Sometimes a old Cosina AF wide angel 19-35, also. I love to take pictures but are not a tecnical expert.
Thank you for the compliment.
Swirt, I love it!
Charlie, merci.
Div, I become red in my face… Yes I love those boats, I’ll post one day my boat, I restored a boat my grandfather gave my father when he was a little boy. This boat will travel to Paris soon, so I can go and sail my own boat with the boys of Caroline.
Kindlingmaker, thank you for comming.
Best thoughts to all of you,

Wonderful compositions. You captured the Paris that I didn’t see. Or saw, but was so rushed that I didn’t appreciate as much as I could have. Not your typical tourist snapshots. Thank you for posting.
