Bright Lights

Amidst the grey skies of London & Paris,
I'm starting to see spring break through.

It feels so nice. 

The bright sunshine
and the shorter hems
 silently promise that, soon,
warmer days will be here to stay!

But the best promise of the good weather to come?

The bright bursts of colors that keep finding me.

Oh, April in Paris.... 

coffee break in amsterdam
the ceiling of the opera garnier by marc chagall
stained glass shimmers at da vinci's burial place, amboise.
cheesy bursts of color on a picnic in switzerland
bright windows in the loire valley
sitting in the sun at les invalides.

  11. oh my that chagall ceiling is one of my favorite things in paris! did you guys get a chance to see his museum in Nice?! oh it's so wonderful! missing you. remember if you ever need an assistant i'm already trained up ;) love and prayers

  12. I am loving all your photography and the lighting...especially the rainbows, I love rainbows!!! :)

    Oh how I'm loving your blog!!! Thank you so much for stopping by mine, and for your super fabulous answer your question, I went to Albuquerque to visit my sister and her hubby for a week while she was on spring break and we had a lovely time!

    As for my name...yes, I was named after "The Sound of Music," and I love that you are a fan of the film and love the name! Yay! I LOVE my name, it is one of my favorite things in life...not to be referencing the film with that phrase...hehe...I seriously, have loved being named Liesl and having a different name! It never bugs me and one of the most common comments I get is "oh I love our name," or "were you named after 'The Sound of Music!" :)

    In fact, just the other week another Liesl found me in blogland and she has a lovely blog too...I have found that almost all girls named Liesl are blonde, unlike the character in the film...hehe! :)

    OK, I simply must follow your lovely spot in blogland! Hope you have a Fabulous Friday ahead!!! :)

  16. Such beautiful pictures! I went to Paris and London in December/January and it was so cold and gray. I would definitely want to visit again in April. I'm sure it would be beautiful.

    I love the shimmers on the floor.
