I Heart Faces~Contemplative



Have you ever been in a foreign city and had to study a map to figure out where you
were? When Shannon and I took a trip to France, starting exactly two years ago today, she was our navigator and planner. She did an amazing job, and I have many photos of her studying the map.

This one, however, is my very favorite! You can just feel the concentration! Can you believe that I managed to get this serene take, in the middle of Paris, with not another soul around? Who knew I'd be entering it in a photo contest....

This is my entry for this week's theme ~CONTEMPLATIVE~at *i heart faces*.




Contemplating The Map






This actually coincides nicely with the start of my travelogue of our trip. Come back for the next few days if you want to see France { Paris, the Loire valley, and Provence} from our vantage point.

You are lucky to have such a great navigator. I have a ton of picture of my husband looking at the map too, but if you are the photographer, I guess it works out well that someone else is navigating. Great shot.
