Just did my thigh-burning for the day. Haha! Climbed to the top of the Cathedral of Notre Dame so I could see this with my very own eyes. And my iPhone. And my Fuji. Yep, I was multi-tasking...hard!

But wow, so worth it.

Taken with my little iPhone 5.
Photo doesn't look so great once uploaded...but hey, it's evidence!

The Maestro ... Paris, France 
Every evening, he plays at the Place de la Contrescarpe. I don't know what I love more... his music, his attitude or his suit.

I walked by this gentleman yesterday, while he and a violinist were playing Happy Birthday to couple at an outdoor cafe. I got a good look at the fabric of his suit... it's some kind of fabric with a pearl-like finish. It made me think of a sharkskin suit, but I never really saw one of those up close before. I almost reached out and touched it. Then I thought better of it: his accordion would have left a big dent. heh. But every day, he plays and smiles and sways to his beautiful French music, then comes and politely asks for a contribution.

He's awesome.

"Discussion". Paris.

I love people watching. This was taken just now across from Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral. What the heck was she saying? Something very passionate, I'm sure. They are French!

Taken with Fuji X-T10, 16-55mm lens. Processed on my iPhone5 in Snapseed.

This evening in Paris, I took +Virtual Photo Walks™ out into a neighborhood close to where I'm staying. We visited the Place de la Contrascarpe and walked by Ernest Hemingway's old apartment.

In the early 1900's, Hemingway rented a room because he believed it had once been occupied by the famous poet Verlaine and he wanted it to rub off. He wan't alone in seeking inspiration... James Joyce worked on "Ulysses" in this 'hood too.

In those days,  Place de la Contrescarpe was, according to George Orwell (who also lived there), a dreadful neighborhood where no policeman dared to go alone after dark. 

Now it's all upscale and right out of a magazine... and I got to show it to my VPW peeps, bringing them to a super cool place they wouldn't be able to see any other way... walking for those who can't. Made my whole day. siiigh.

Thank you +Verizon
How many people get to prowl the back streets of Paris with +Karen Hutton What a great Virtual Photo Walks lots of laughs and a few tears that it couldn't last longer. This Virtual Photo Walk is powered by Verizon and the 4G LTE Jetpack Mobile Hotspot. Yes we were roaming, Don't do this unless you can afford it or have friends.

First (and far from last!) blog post with a whole slew of new images from Paris! 

What an incredible, brilliant city. And playing the part of street photographer with +Valerie Jardin and her phenomenal crew of workshop participants this week is a doubly incredible way to see it!
We have to step out of our comfort zones in order to be brave, better & best in our lives. I'm doing just that in Paris; as a street photographer!

Snow? In Paris? No way! And the weather actually improved quite a bit this afternoon. Maybe thanks to you? I'll thank you just in case.

Here Goes... Paris France
I could take pictures of the stairs where I'm staying in Paris all day long. 
Aren't you glad I didn't? Heh! 

Poised to head out for an incredible day #1 joining +Valerie Jardin as a guest of her Paris Street Photography workshop... I wondered so many things. Who would I meet? What would we see? Would I feel like a stranger in a strange land? Would it even matter? I'm in Paris!!

As it turned out, the answers were: awesome people... amazing things... not really ... MAIS NON!

Stayed up till 5am... now getting ready for my second full day of shooting. yawn. Heh.

Photography, Voiceovers, Purveyer of Awesomeness

Overall, my world is a big ball of photographic, voiceover and content creational fun. 
Think of it as; Lenses and Light - meet Microphones, Words and Sound. 
Don't look so surprised! They play really well together. 
They each share a particular point of view. Tell stories. Express a unique 'signature'. A Voice. What's not to love?

Photography is why I breathe, baby. That's lifelong, undying love and passion. It's all about: Connection. Inspiration. Story. Humor. And Beauty. Who couldn't do with more beauty in the world? I love photographers because they wear their heart on their sleeve and it lives in their work. Their breathtaking world view. Their intensely personal story... the one that we just HAVE to tell or our hearts will simply burst from the withholding of it. 

I produce and host a show called: THE CHAT with Karen Hutton: Sound byte-sized insights from some of the coolest people on the planet!

In it, I chat with creatives; successful artists, photographers, musicians, singers, creative business folks... all of whom are uniquely engaged in "living life as an artist: or better yet, living their life as if it were their art." 

Voiceover is global. Over the years, hundreds of commercials, narrations and announcements for planes, trains, automobiles, television and radio… and for fabulous apps like MotionX-GPS Drive. (Cougar anyone?)  Or apps on your iPad helping you to dream, adventure and plan your next travels, like Stuck on Earth, created by Trey Ratcliff. I'm the voice of the guide over there.

The way I see it, our individual signature - our point of view or 'voice' - connects us. Is our heart speaking, through everything we do. After all, as my mother used to say "You can't hide who you really are." Wise woman.

My first eBook is called I/WE: Scenes From the Big Picture. It's geared toward that childlike desire we all have to soak in pretty pictures and a good (very short) story.

So, welcome to my world.

Over here we love to capture, shoot, chase, wait for, plan for and generally live in (and for) - light.

And with a little light, don't you know... anything is possible. 


"The industrial age is ending, and a new one is beginning. It produces art instead of stuff and it rewards gracefulness.

...the future belongs to the breathtaking."
