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

Back From France!

w h e a t  f i e l d s  i n  N o r m a n d y

It's been a long time since I've blogged, and to those who've come by and not found me, I do apologize.  I hit the ground running as soon as we arrived home, and I've barely had time to look at our photos, let alone edit them. But I will share a few, because I know you all love France, like I do!

We landed in Paris early in the a.m. This was my first shot, from the rooftop of Galeries Layfayette

This year I made a point of finding this rue first.  Great street art in Paris, Could be by

Jeff Aerosol, but more likely by Nemo of

 Belleville. Rue du Chat-qui-Pêche is 

considered the narrowest street in Paris. It

is only 1.80 m wide for the whole of its 29m 


I had to make a beeline to my favorite place,

L'Ile St. Louis.

Don't you just love the idea of a little

 island right in the middle of the Seine? 

And wouldn't you love to buy your fruit here?

Then it was off to the 6ème

and the famous place de St.-Germaine-des-Près
[where supposedly Jean Paul Sartre drafted the philosophy of existentialism]

And just a few doors away


The most adorable Art Nouveau resto, and I hope to eat there on my next trip.  But for now, a photo will have to suffice. Have any of you eaten there?

More soon...
