Weekend in Paris

I’ve a confession. I wasn’t captivated with Paris when I visited it for the first time in the autumn of 2013. I couldn’t understand what the hype was all about; the city was grey and dirty and full of tourists. So when my husband suggested spending a weekend ahead of a conference he was attending, …

Chungking Mansion

7 November 2011 — If it wasn’t for photography, I’d probably wouldn’t have given much thought to this place. A mansion it definitely is not.
