Weekly Travel Inspiration: Instagramming Paris

I spent last week in Paris with my mother. And I discovered a new obsession.

Sacre Coeur

Paris is an amazingly photogenic city. I felt like a wonderful photographer while I was there because I took so many beautiful photos, but I think it was less my photography skills and more the city’s innate charms that looked so good.

Nothing can beat seeing Paris for yourself, but I hope you’ll enjoy this sample of the photos I took there. I found that as awesome as these shots looked on their own, they also lended themselves well to instagram.

What I’m really enjoying about instagram is that it’s like a mini art project that you can do on the go. It has turned into a nice creative outlet for me because I can make something beautiful in just a few minutes. And maybe making truly beautiful things should and does take longer, but instagram is still a satisfying exercise for your creativity.

Notre Dame

So, if you can’t afford a trip to Paris right now, maybe you can do a little instagramming around your home town. It might not be quite as stunning as this famous French city, but maybe you’ll see the familiar in a new light.
