one thing at a time


hey guys how are you doing this fine tuesday? it’s nippy in ny but the sun is popoing in and out thad those bits of brightness are bringing me a lot of joy. here come some rays now! i’m working from the apartment kind of just like the shot above (i wish)! so i couldn’t help but post it. i leave in a few hours and this trip has left me with a lot of opportunities. i have to decide if i could live in the city again and change up life as i know it.



in the meantime i was messing around on pinterest since i have a few moments to spare. between the photos, creativity and endless inspiration, it’s also instructional.


the shots that people take blow me away. and tweaking them is incredible too. from instagram, hipstamatic, photoshop, and iphoto there’s a whole world out there. i want to be a better photographer and have been bookmarking some pages to go through.


would you ever do a challenge like this?


are you obsessed with photography? everyone has such an individual style. i’d love to see books on pics in phones each year. it would be a great chronicle!


well anyway i hope to find some time to actually go and check out these sites in depth. if you do let me know! if you want to do the challenge let me know that too, it could be fun! ok, well it’s off to work we go. have a spectacular day!

    Hello Claudia – I just read Grumbles & Grunts post about taking better iPhone photos and it was worth reading. Thanks very much for the tips as I too am wanting to be a better photographer (much to learn). You sound like you have the opportunity to mix life up again, and that’s always exciting. Wishing you an early happy birthday. Hoping it’s a great day or a great lady!

    hey deb, thank you so much for letting me know about the tutorial. and the birthday wishes :)
    it’s officially on the 7th but it IS technically this week so why not start celebrating, right?

    I regularly read a good photographer named Carla Coulson’s blog- Carla Loves Photography. Check it out and let me know what you think. Your big day is on the 7th, how blessed you are to have another birthday(that is how I look at them)& you might shake the medicine bottle up a bit. How exciting is that! Keep me posted.

    I love that opening shot, it’s got the “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”look to it.
    The monthly guide of photos to take is a great thing to kick start any photog….
    AND, Happy Birthday!!

  7. Colleen replied:

    Claudia, I sent you two emails wanting to talk to you about including a book review of your newest book in my new digital magazine and have not heard back from you. I’d like to call you to discuss it. Would give you free publicity in my Paris issue. I sent you some interview questions for the article. Loved the book and I am going back to Paris three weeks this May. Please respond.


    • The Paris Apartment replied:

      Hi Colleen,
      I’m so sorry not to have gotten back to you sooner!
      I’d be thrilled if you would do a giveaway and review of the book!
      What’s your address?

    I would love to do a photo challenge like the one you posted. I should give it a try over the summer when I’m home from work and there is lots of light for taking photos. I like projects like that as it gets you out of the photo rut and our of your comfort zone. Thanks for posting.

  12. Kat Skull replied:

    I did two challenges like that during February of this year and last year – but I made the challenges myself. Since I’m in school and get really busy with homework, its nice to have something planned for the busiest month. February is also the shortest month :)


  13. Susanne replied:

    Hi Claudia,
    wish you a happy birthday! and a good time where ever you decide to live in the future. (love your selection of photos)



  14. Chang replied:

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    You cannot just right click in Minecraft, but you have to hold the click
