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

  1. So lovely, Dawne! I had lunch yesterday at a French bakery and cafe here in Portland. I tried to imagine that I was in Paris and everyone around me was speaking French :~) But it wasn't quite the same :~/ How is your Christmas decorating coming along? :~)

  2. DAWNE DEAREST! School and LIFE in general has kept me away today. I saw this fabulous post early this morning but I had to run off to school. Every shade of aqua blue, brown and other neutral tones captures for me, the fantasy and fairytalish look to France that so many of us dream of. Oh how I wish I could take a trip to your part of the world!!!! MAGNIFICENT IMAGES!!! BISES, Anita

  3. Hello Dawne,
    what gorgeous photos you have here! It would be a dream to go on one of your expeditions.
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment.So glad somebody noticed my return! Makes all the difference.

  4. The first photo is my favorite. The menu looks très bon! I also love the grafiti contrast. To answer your question from your comment on our "Christmas by the Sea" post, the photos were actually taken on the peninsula in Newport Beach. We were trying to find the Christmas boat parade, but missed it! Naples in Long Beach is so beautiful, though. I took a pizza cruise/gondola ride for my birthday and I had so much fun. Have a lovely night and a very merry Christmas!
