Paris for Lovers
by Jim W. Vestal
About the Book
This book offers an intimate look of Paris - to the museums to see the works of Picasso, Monet, Rodin, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, as couples enjoy Paris as they wander the Seine River, go inside and to the top of Norte-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, and into the Louvre and Orsay Museums. This inexpensive colorful table top style book was edited and produced by a photojournalist that for the past 12-years traveled through Europe, Greece, Southeast Asia, Australia, and Mexico, after spending over 20 years producing and editing travel sections for newspapers in California and New York City. His pictures are now in books and available to all via Blurb.com participants and readers at pennies per image.
I was a news photographer and picture editor for seven newspapers, and member of the National Press Photographers Assc. since 1956. A Life Member of the San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association, after being the Picture Editor at The Sacramento (CA) Union (1968-89), New York Newsday (1989-94), and Contra Costa Times (1994-96) when I retired after 40-years in the newspaper business - starting as a shooter since 1956. I'm retired but still shoot and actively travel today for my own interest. The assorted blurb.com books have turned out to be a way to gather many of my images for nice and simple presentations.
