Mon Amie Jean-Luc


Last fall I joined Red Bubble as a place to show and hopefully sell my work.  It's a community of artists and is very much like blogging.  I have enjoyed exploring the work of other photographers and of course was drawn to those that featured Paris.   Jean-Luc Rollier's photographs caught my eye and soon he and I were chatting via Bubble Mail.  When Mary and I went to Paris last January I asked if we could meet and he agreed!  Peter and I met him, along with photographer Carla Coulson ( you'll meet her here soon) for coffee one afternoon and what fun it was to meet them both in person.  I brought along my copy of Jean-Luc's book for him to sign.  Another friendship made possible by the internet!

Another talented photographer! How wonderful that you two got together—and Jean-Luc looks like a fun guy too! Gotta say, so far I've encountered only terrific people through blogging.
