First impressions last

Just over a decade ago, in 2009, my husband, Tony, and I began our French adventure. Here are the shots from our very first trip to Argenton-sur-Creuse in central France, via London and Paris on that inaugural trip, that made the cut and appear in my photobook…

London, England

I snapped the iconic Palace of Westminster from atop the hop-on-hop-off tourist bus – which is always an easy option for exploring a new city.

Paris, France

We captured Tony’s first-ever view of the Eiffel Tower from the beautiful Montmartre area.

Paris, France

Dusk at the magnificent and imposing Basilique du Sacre-Coeur, Montmatre. This area remains one of our favourites in Paris.

Argenton-sur-Creuse, France

A perfect reflection in the peaceful Creuse river of the one of the many historical sites in our beloved Argenton: the 14th century Chapelle Saint-Benoît.

Limoges, France

Exploring Limoges, we stumbled upon their amazing town hall (or Hôtel de Ville) with its elaborate porcelain-decorated fountain. (Limoges of course is renowned for its porcelain.)

As they say, first impressions last, and these experiences of London and France on our first overseas trip together no doubt fueled our shared passion for travel, which has not waned, but rather has grown over the last ten years.

So much to see… so much to photograph!
