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

In Paris, between December 17 and January 2, there was no charge to ride the carrousels.
Oh, dear. 
Next year, peut-être, I will go riding
 many times.


  1. Hello Dawne

    How delightful - that is such a beautiful gesture on the part of the City
