My photos published in a book.. a real book!

About 4 months ago my sister told me that one of her friends was looking through our photos from our 2008 Europe trip. Her friend works for a publishing company, and was impressed by the shots she saw, and wanted to use them in a book on Paris she was publishing.

While I was excited at the time, didn’t get my hopes up about it, until it was actually done. In true Parmi style, I totally forgot about this until today, when a copy of the book turned up in the mail for me! The book is set for release on Dec 1st

I am currently in a state of shock that 6 photos (5 of mine and 1 of my sister’s) have been used in the book! I had to make a journal entry to commemorate the event :)

Below are the shots from the book and the original photos that I took while in Paris. So fitting that the book itself is PARIS – A Personal Guide To The City’s Best. A 300+ page hard cover book on Paris culture, dining, accommodation, mixed in with some of Bennett’s French recipes. (Shannon Bennett is the owner of internationally renowned restaurant, Vue de monde in Melbourne) Given that Paris is quite possibly my favourite city I have visited so far, this was poetic in it’s own way.

Edit: I left to make a cup of coffee and came back to a massive outpouring of encouragement and congrats from so many of you! YOU GUYS ROCK! I am so supported on here by all of you and I can’t even express in words how incredible that feels! Thank you just doesn’t cut it!!! :)
