I’m off…to France!

Friday, June 1st, 2012 9

I think the title of this post says it all…I’m off to France!! This trip has been in the works for some time and I am pinching myself that it’s here. Our plans are to spend a week in Paris and then a week in Provence. *sigh* I’m looking forward to so many parts of this trip…2 solid weeks with my partner, seeing Paris in a whole new way compared to when I was there 16 years ago, visiting Provence and small towns I’ve never visited, museums, cafés, baguettes, wine, macarons. I could go on and on.

Of course, I’m ecstatic about the photography that lies ahead of me during this trip. I’ve limited the gear I’m taking to only my digital SLR and my Polaroid SX-70. Oh, and my iPhone! I’m packing a bag full of Impossible Project film, both color and b&w, and aim to shoot a pack of film a day. I’m giddy even thinking about it! I’m planning to post photos here at Life Refocused as we are traveling, and I’ll definitely be uploading to Instagram when we have wifi. And yes, I’ll be keeping up with my 365 project — when I got worried about not being able to post my 365 photos each day, a dear friend reminded me that my 365 is a photography project, not a blogging project, and that it’s okay if I need to post each day’s photo later. The point is to be shooting every day. Whew. Trust me when I say I have NO fears about shooting every day during the next couple of weeks!

And with that friends, I’m off.  Au revoir!

    Bon Voyage, Meghan! Allons a la plage–just one random phrase that I remember from high school French:) I think it means “let’s go to the beach”.
