"She seeks out culture high and low, bits of nature thriving in the city and moments of human interaction. Neutral grays and browns are featured prominently in her work; bouncing against each other, like shades, they feel lively. Robertson's color-seeking approach is surprising, given the uniformly neutral shade that prevails in so much of Paris." - CNN Travel

According to Nichole Robertson, the author of 'Paris in Color', walking with a pet turtle sets a slow pace in which to enjoy this beautiful city, and it was a fashionable thing to do in the 1800's.
Armchair travellers will love this photo book for it captures those slices of Paris that most people would just pass by or take for granted.
Unlike other travel books, Nichole has created one of "the Paris you see when you step out of the shadows of monuments." And this is what makes 'Paris in Color' unique.
Even more intriguing is the back story behind the book.
Nichole and her husband decided on a whim to move to Paris from New York. After moving to Paris, she says "everything was a challenge in the best possible way."
Being out of her comfort zone was good for her, it turned out. She was able to slow down from the fast-paced New York creative scene, and carried her camera everywhere with her. Snapping photos "of everything that caught my eye."
Ms. Robertson created a beautiful photo-blog titled 'Little Brown Pen', which features the most remarkable photographs of every-day Paris. The café's, scooters, signage, menu boards and snapshots of people, doing everyday things.
San Francisco publisher, Chronicle Books, discovered her blog and asked if she'd like to create a book around one of her themes - the colors of Paris.
Lucky for us, Nichole and her husband didn't over-think their impulsive decision to relocate to Paris. If not for a decision made over a few glasses of wine, 'Paris in Color' wouldn't exist. She says, "I guess good things happen when you follow your bliss."
Having followed the blog for a good time I just had to buy the book. I once lived in Paris and my first visit was at the age of 10 months in 1945!
If have a criticism it is the paper: I have spent my working life in printing an publishing and a tad of coating [no a gloss-art paper] would have given the images jut the extra lift they need [as it does her sets of postcards.
