Today’s photo is from Paris.  We were on our way to the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur and passed this chocolate shop.  This particular shop had been awarded the title of Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, which basically states that they are “One of the Best Crafstmen of France”.  Walking in this shop you could tell.  It was definitely some fine chocolate.  We only bought some macaroons, which were excellent by the way, when we were there though.  This was my favorite photo from that store.  When I see it I’m instantly transported back to that chocolate wonderland.

Today’s photo is another from London.  We were trying to find a restaurant we saw listed in one of the magazines that was in our hotel.  It was at the end of this street, but was closed.  It was early enough that the sun was low in the sky making for a dramatic look.  I took a quick 3-shot HDR to balance out the light and edited the photo in Perfect Effects 4.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL35mm, f/3.2, ISO 100.
