Some time last summer, I became mildly obsessed with taking pictures of wrought iron balconies. My interest has since tempered but I'm left with a folder stuffed to the gills with variations on a theme. These are actually surprisingly difficult to shoot from street level.
And you thought all Paris balconies were the same? Mais non! Personally, I'm partial to the Art Deco ones. What's your favorite?
For a long time, we were just another typical Washington, DC family: two policy-oriented jobs, two kids, and two cars. Out of the blue, my husband got a new assignment; we ditched the old jobs and the cars (but kept the kids) and headed to Paris for what started out to be a three-year, and eventually became a four-year tour.
