I actually rode on that Merry Go Round when I visited Paris a very lobg time ago...excellent pictures :D
Gorgeous! What did you use?(ps: SO JEALOUS!)
Wow! Gorgeous and magical!
By the way, I'd love to know about what it was like traveling with a toddler abroad... any unique challenges/considerations?
Gorgeous photos. There is a softness to them; the word "satin" kept coming to my mind as I looked at them. Were they taken with the Holga?I really need to dig mine out again. We took our honeymoon pics with a Holga, and they are some of my most treasured photos.

beautiful! thanks for sharing. seems like so many bloggers i've been following have been to paris in the last few weeks . . . and i'm totally jealous. someday i shall return. glad you had a good time. :)
Aw, thanks ya'll! I'm so glad you like these photos :) I actually took them on my little Sony point-and-shoot digital and then I played around with them on iPhoto to get the lomography-esque effects. It's funny, because I was really unhappy with the way they looked when I first took them, but after I tweaked the colors and added the gauzy/blurred/vignetted edges they became some of my favorites from the trip! I am such a sucker for my Diana -- sometimes the regular digital photos just look sooo sterile in comparison...like where's the atmosphere?! I did take some shots with my Diana while I was in Paris, but I have yet to get them developed. If they turn out nice I'll definitely post them here.
That first shot is absolutely breathtaking. Isn't Paris great inspiration material? I lived there for a while and never got sick of it. Can't wait to hear more about your trip!
Absolutely gorgeous photos! What camera did you use and where did you learn your photography skills? These are "publishable" - really!
