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.

  1. Hi Dawne,

    Loved seeing Marie Antoinette's Hameau, this is fabulous, and the turret and the potager garden are lovely.

    Happy weekend

  2. I was absolutely enchanted by Le Hameau when I visited Versailles in 1987. It was so long ago that I really can't believe that I was actually there :~(

    I recently looked at the photos from my trip and unfortunately, they aren't so good, because all I had was a Nikon One Touch Point and Shoot :~/

    But one of these days, I'm going to scan in the negatives and play around with the photos in Photoshop and maybe I can save them. At least I have them and can look at them and remember how beautiful it all was :~)

    Thanks, as usual, Dawne, for the wonderful images! The processing is magical!!!

  3. So beautiful, dear Dawne...
    Dreaming of France now!! (and always) ;))
    Hope you are staying warm and cozy..
    - Irina

    Much Love

  5. i AM SO LATE but nonetheless HAPPY to see one of my favorite spots in France LIGHT UP with your aura of CREATIVE BLISS!!!!!!!LOVE TO YOU DAWNE! Anita

  6. Absolutely enchanting--I love Marie Antoinette's Hameau, and I'm always sad when I hear friends have visited Versailles but never made it back to her little retreat. I've send you an email. Hope you got it???

  7. Just so beautiful! The effect you used for these photos is perfect. It is a dream of mine to visit this wonderful place someday. I love the idea of your photo tours. What a wonderful way to chronicle this storybook area.
