Photographer Highlight: Georgianna Lane And Her Stunning Images Of Paris And Flowers


You know, I have to be completely honest and say that Paris, France has never been on my top list of European countries to visit. Places like Italy, Spain, the UK and Austria I would love to travel. But France is a country I've never felt a burning desire. And I truly believe it's because I've allowed other people's opinions to give me reservation. Many people I talk to seem to have such contrasting opinions of Paris. They either say it's the most magical, beautiful and incredible city in the world. Or they say it's a beautiful city, yes, but that the French are rude, intolerant, and snobby. That is, unless you speak French. And yet, I don't know why I allow those opinions to affect me because 1) I've never been to France, so how can I judge? And 2) I love New York City, but many people have a preconceived idea of New Yorkers as rude, intolerant, and snobby. Yet, I find them to be the most genuine, helpful and down-to-earth people I know.

So do you know what?

I shouldn't pass judgment until I actually get my ass to Paris, France and experience it myself. Then once there, I can form my own opinion.

Anyway, the whole point of this post is because I just recently discovered an AMAZINGLY talented photographer who takes the most AMAZING photographs of Paris, France. The second I landed on her blog and started scrolling through her images, I instantly understood why so many people are initially drawn to that city. It's freaking GORGEOUS!

As many of you already know, I am a hopeless romantic. Therefore, when I look at these images, I get a strong sense of not only how incredibly beautiful Paris is, but also how romantic it feels.

And the architecture! OMG...it's si magnifique!

Today I would like to share some of my favorites from Georgianna Lane. And let me tell you that it was very challenging to select just these 15 images because there were so many incredible ones to choose from.

It is with great joy and pleasure that I share with you the exceptionally talented eye of Georgianna Lane.

So grab yourself a French croissant and coffee, or a nice glass of French wine and some cheese, and enjoy...

Paris and flowers.


Photographer: Georgianna


Peonies



The Eiffel Tower


This one actually looks like a painting, doesn't it?



This photo makes me want to put on a pair of tap shoes and dance to Puttin' On The Ritz on that stunning floor. Just like, Fred Astaire!


I LOVE these windows!




Pink is one of my favorite colors, so I HAD to share this one!





Vive la France!

Have a fabuleux week everyone!

    Wow - each photo is a work of art, isn't it? I LOVE Paris - she has captured its essence so well. Thank you for sharing and have a beauty-filled week.

  2. What gorgeous photos! It's very cool and unique how she highlights pink in so many of them. Did you discover her on Instagram? I will have to check it out.

    I agree on generalizing an entire culture. I know others think Americans all carry guns and I've known VERY few people who have ever owned a gun.

  3. Like you, Ron, I've never been drawn to France. Perhaps that's because I have no French blood coursing through my veins! But I acknowledge the photos I've seen of the city make it look amazing.


    Georgianna has quite an eye, doesn't she? Her pastels are soft enough to touch; her flowers are detailed enough to sniff right through the Internet! And that castle -- wow, who wouldn't want to spend a week or so living like royalty?!


    I suspect it's the skill and eye of the photographer that convinces us of a place's worth. I imagine Paris, like any BIG city, has parts that are seedy and dangerous, but by focusing her lens on the beauty, Georgianna tempts us to see that, too. Thank you for introducing us to her Paris! xx

  4. Well, if those photo captures aren't an endorsement of the city, I just don't know what is! Lovely, gorgeous and stunning. Paris probably isn't called the City of Lights for no reason. The architecture and history of the city is fascinating. Like you, I've not heard very complimentary things about the Parisian people. That, and since it seems Paris has been the target of terrorists in the last few years, my travel plans will remain closer to the mainland. But, maybe some day.........however, Italy would be much further up the list (like #1)! Hope the week is treating you well.

  5. Hey there Fiona!

    I was hoping you'd give me your feedback on Paris because I knew you had visited through seeing photographs on your blog. Yes, aren't these photographs a work of art? The second I saw them, I knew I wanted to highlight her talent on my blog.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend! Have a beauty-filled week as well!

  6. Aren't these photographs GORGEOUS?!?!

    "unique how she highlights pink in so many of them. Did you discover her on Instagram? I will have to check it out.

    I think PINK must be her favorite color because I too noticed that as well. A lot of her photographs feature that color. Pink is one of my faves as well, so are pictures really caught my eye. I actually found her on Feedly, her blog automatically came up as a recommendation. And I am so glad I clicked on her link because I love her photographs. However, I did check out her Instagram feed as well and am now following her.

    "I agree on generalizing an entire culture. I know others think Americans all carry guns and I've known VERY few people who have ever owned a gun."

    Yes, you are absolutely right. Isn't it something how so often we will generalize because of what we are told?

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Have an AWESOME week!

  7. Hey there Debbie!

    You too? Isn't it funny how we're all drawn to certain places and yet, we don't feel drawn to others? However, after I found Georgianna's blog and looked through her photographs, it shined a whole different light on my perception.

    "Her pastels are soft enough to touch; her flowers are detailed enough to sniff right through the Internet! And that castle -- wow, who wouldn't want to spend a week or so living like royalty?!

    Yes, I thought the same thing, Debbie! Her pastels are soft enough to touch. I don't know how she did it, but you can actually FEEL the texture, even though it's a photograph.

    I just LOVE her eye and am so glad I found her blog/website/photographs.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Have a fantastic rest of your week!

  8. "Paris probably isn't called the City of Lights for no reason."

    HA! You're absolutely right about that, Lisa! And I totally forgot about Paris being called the City of Lights. And it fits!

    It funny because I've heard totally different and extreme opinions about Paris and it's people from those who have visited. I guess it depends on each other persons interactions. After seeing these photographs, I would simply like to see Paris just for the ability to bring my camera and take pictures.

    "That, and since it seems Paris has been the target of terrorists in the last few years, my travel plans will remain closer to the mainland. But, maybe some day.........however, Italy would be much further up the list (like #1)! "

    Yes, Paris has been the target for terrorist in the last several years. I remember how devastated I was when I watched the news and saw the last attack. Sad.

    Yup...ITALY is definitely #1 for me as well!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Have a super rest of your week!

  9. Oh Ron, these pictures are AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL and GORGEOUS! I've never been to Paris (or France for that matter) but have always wanted to visit. I too hard different opinions about the French, which makes me wonder. But like you said, you'll never know unless you visit for yourself.

    I LOVE how so many of her pictures include the color pink, which is my favorite color EVER! Yes, Paris looks so romantic! It looks like something out of a fairy tale. Do you remember in Sex and the City when Carrie went to Paris with that guy? I loved that whole season. Sadly though, it was the final season.

    Thanks for sharing this today. When I get home tonight from work, I'm going to check out her blog and Instagram. Can't wait!

    Ron, that last shot of the Eiffel Tower is stunning!X

  10. Hola Denise!

    Aren't these pictures freaking FABULOUS?!?!?!? Every time I look at them, they make me smile. Regardless of how the French might be, I think it would be such a treat to go there with my camera and take pictures. And judging from how it appears in Georgianna's photographs, I would probably go insane taking picture after picture after picture. It's how I feel about NYC, there are SO MANY things to take pictures of!!!

    " Do you remember in Sex and the City when Carrie went to Paris with that guy? I loved that whole season. Sadly though, it was the final season."

    OMG, yes...I certainly do remember that. I love Mikhail Baryshnikov, so when he came on the show for the last season, I was very interested. It was sad, you're right. Especially the very final scene.

    Yes, check her other social media platforms, I have a feeling you'll really enjoy them!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, girl. Have a terrific rest of your week!

  11. Ron, these photos are incredible! I love how so many of her images contain a soft dreaminess. Ethereal almost. I love the one of the pink Vespa and roses. Even the bricks are pink! I also love the one of the windows.

    Very talented photographer. So glad you shared her!

  12. Hello there Candice!

    Aren't these photographs lovely?

    " love how so many of her images contain a soft dreaminess. Ethereal almost. "

    OMG, I love the way you expressed that because you are so right, these images DO have an almost "ethereal" feel to them. A dreaminess.

    So glad you enjoyed, my friend. Thanks so much for stopping by and adding your insight!
    Have a great rest of your week!

    'I've been to Paris' was a phrase used a lot when I was younger but I can't remember in what capacity. Probably some ridiculous reason. Anyway, I have been to Paris. Joe and I were on a cruise and one of the outings was to Paris. What a joke that was! We got off the coach and were given two hours (honestly) to explore that great city. We saw nothing except a sort of corner shop that we went into to buy sweets. The lady kept us talking and Joe was so taken with being able to use their language that our time was almost up. After that it was time to find the toilets and back to the coach. A never-to-be-forgotten outing. That's why your post is appreciated. I learn more about the place from you!

    Hope your week is going well.

  15. Hello there Valerie!

    OMG...that is so funny! I can't believe your experience in Paris!!!

    Hey, you know what? I think you should write a book entitled, "See Paris in TWO Hours!" HA!

    But I have to say that I'm VERY impressed though that Joe spoke French. I bet they LOVED him because I heard from many people that the Parisians are extra nice to anyone who can speak their language.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your comment, my friend. LOVED it!

    Have a fabu week! Oui...oui!

  16. Aren't they LOVELY? I had such a difficult time selecting just these because she has so many glorious photographs to choose from. She has such a talented eye for capturing the beauty of Paris!

  17. Man, I always feel like my skills are so inferior after looking at photos as stunning as these. I love her work! But also, I really wish I had a croissant right about now.

    Thanks for sharing, Ron.

  18. Ron, these pictures from Georginna, ROCK! I forwarded this post to my girlfriend this morning and she immediately texted me back saying, WE'RE GOING TO PARIS NEXT YEAR! She's been asking me for so many years about taking a week off and spending in France, Paris in particular. So I knew she would love reading this post and seeing the photographs.

    What an incredible eye she has. Her skill with the camera is amazing. These all look picture perfect. I laughed at your caption about putting on tap shoes and dancing on the floor. LOL!

    Thanks for sharing, dude!

  19. Mark, I sometimes think the same thing when I see photographs like these. However, I also think it inspires me to stretch my ability as a photographer to keep learning and growing. Photography is one of those things that I feel that the more you do it, more you learn.

    I agree, these photographs are STUNNING!!!!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Have a fantabulous rest of your week!

    X to you and Tara

  20. OMG Matt, that is SO FUNNY! I know so many people who feel the same about Paris, they LONG to go there and visit. And after seeing these (and other) glorious photographs by Georgianna, I can see why because the images make "me" want to visit too. Her photographs capture the essence or energy of the city.

    Please keep me posted as to when you and your girlfriend go to France next year because I'm dying to know how you like it.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, buddy. Have a most excellent rest of your week!

  21. Wow. Actually before I got to the one you said looked like a painting, I was thinking that many of them looked like watercolors. So soft and gorgeous.

    I've been to France but not Paris, but these photos sure make me want to see Paris.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sacre Bleu, Ron! These photographs are, how you say, magnifique!

    What an incredibly talented artist Ms. Lane is! Her photographs are almost as good as yours!

    I was in Paris years ago and, while I had a good time, I was never tempted to go back. But after seeing these images I want to slap on beret and hightail it to the City of Light!

    Thanks so much for sharing these great photos with us, buddy! Take care!

  23. " Actually before I got to the one you said looked like a painting, I was thinking that many of them looked like watercolors. So soft and gorgeous."

    BINGO...you nailed it perfectly...they most certain DO look like watercolors!

    Isn't she so talented?

    If I ever decide to go to France, I would most likely try Paris first, and then perhaps the countyside

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend! Have a fantastic week!

  24. Rob...yes, aren't these photographs MAGNIFIQUE?

    I accidentally found her website on Feedly and am so glad I did because I've become a HUGE fan. There is something so magical about her images.

    "I was in Paris years ago and, while I had a good time, I was never tempted to go back. But after seeing these images I want to slap on beret and hightail it to the City of Light! '

    Yes, many people I speak to who have been to Paris share similar feedback. I really do need to visit one day so that I can come to my own conclusion. People are either hot or cold about Paris.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, buddy. Have a most excellent week!
