Photo of the Month

Eiffel Tower Abstract
Photograph by Sophia Pagan

After my second solo show in Paris, I was contacted by a woman who had seen it.  She invited me to the balcony of her hotel room, which offered an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower.  This is a long-exposure shot from that balcony of the tower during its sparkle.

Fine art photographer Sophia Pagan has developed a Paris portrait session in collaboration with Entrée to Black Paris  To learn more, follow this link:  Black Paris Portraits.

Angel of the Month


Chopin in Parc Monceau

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris

Along a verdant path in the beautiful Parc Monceau stands a lovely 1906 white marble monument to the great composer, Frederic Chopin. Sculpted by Jacques Froment-Meurice in the languid Belle Epoque style, a shrouded angel hovers over the dapper composer while a tragic figure reclines at the base. Chopin is portrayed at work on his Piano Sonata No. 2 in B minor, Opus 35. Composed in 1839, it came to be known as the Funeral March and was used at the state funerals of Kennedy, Churchill and Brezhnev.

Parc Monceau, northwest corner, boulevard de Courcelles, Paris 8th arrondissement (Metro: Monceau)
