Welcome to French at Heart, a photography blog with few words, but many pictures of a country I love, France. All of the photographs were taken by my husband, Dean Polis, and myself, Dawne, and edited in Adobe Photoshop. If you like what you see, I would be honored if you'd leave a comment. And if you would like to learn our Digital Photography secrets, and make photographs like these yourself, [ oh, yes, you can do it!] we would be happy to lead you on an image making adventure to France with us. You may contact us here or at my email iluvfrance@wildblue.net

Wishing a très joyeux noël to all of our readers, friends and followers! May this season bring you peace, joy and love.  Your kind response to our photographs has encouraged us and brightened our year! Merci!


  1. Oh how I remember that GALLERIE!!!!!! Ruben and I had gone to the boulangerie next door, PAUL. I bought a HUGE boule and we went up to the top floor of the mall, sat there and ATE that whole boule and fell asleep at our table!!!!!!


  2. HI THERE DAWNE!!!!!!! The hours are gently ticking away, towards the evening, when I will look up into the clear and cold sky at all the stars above my head. I will praise our Lord for giving us the life, the LOVE and the grace to understand that we need ritual, routine, something to make sense of it all. And to do it together....I will look to the East, knowing that YOU are there, and those beyond. Blessings to you dear friend and thank you for coming again. Oh how I could tell you stories about BREAD while I was in France!!!!!!!! My favorite food of all time, I had a field day while I was there!!!! Anita

  3. Warmest wishes dear Dawne, for a merry Christmas, wonderful relaxing holidays, and a year ahead filled with happy days.
    Love La Galeries Layfette, we shopped there in January and it is pure magic.
