My partner and I had an amazing trip to Paris in April 2011. The jazz standard "April in Paris" was never far from our minds throughout the weeklong trip: the tulips were in bloom, the temperatures were mild, and it was a stunning time to visit this world-class city. I had been to Paris two other times, but had never been to Monet's Giverny. It was the highlight of this particular trip for me. The gardens are stunning and well worth a visit, for photographers and non-photographers alike! Choosing less than 50 photos was a challenge, but I've tried to select a mix that convey the beautiful springtime season, as well as create some black & white more iconic types of images.
