Eiffel in the Distance
Paris, France ~ June, 2012

This photo is what I call one of my "drive bys". Photographed from the car, we were approaching Paris on our way back to Holland and I was "shooting". Along the bottom of the photo you can catch a glimpse of some of the houseboats on the River Seine.

Yes, our vacation is over :o( and I've returned with an earache and laryngitis to a rather wet Holland - but with lovely memories of another wonderful vacation in Château-Chervix, France. :o)

I'll post the drawings I did in my Travel in France Moleskine #5 as soon as I get them scanned and I get over this earache ... and maybe get my voice back (luckily, all I have to do is type on this blog). Odd how you need to "rest up" after a long vacation ... at least I do!


Tot volgende week (until next week),
Judy

Welcome home and get over the vacation bugs quickly. It looks as if you had a wonderful time and I am looking forward to seeing the sketches. I enjoyed the photo of your travelling art case too. It seemed to have so many tiny treasures.
