to Neil. Or so Eric says
for some of our home decorating. Several years ago, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company did a reading of Paris Tables, based around the fictional conversations at a Parisian cafe between the likes of Picasso, Stein, Hemingway, and more. We've often wondered what happened to that intriguing play as it still resounds in our memories. This exhibit takes the major photo journalists and heavy hitters around that same time period and presents their best images of the day (and night).

I asked Eric if he was planning on doing a review of the exhibit and he said, "Why should I? Your Paris photos are better than any of them." "Thank you, Eric." What else could I say? I'm flattered, but I have to say I had a similar thought when going through the 8 rooms at the Taft recently.

Many of the subjects had the same, or similar, themes as some of my photos from our visit in 2006. Of course, those photographers all had the inspiration of hundreds of creative talents from all walks of the art world surrounding them 24/7. I took my creative energy from the city and its people, not to mention being in the middle of the trip of a lifetime. I'm positive we all appreciated everyday life in Paris and the beauty of our surroundings.
