“Michael” Paris, 1991. By Paul Goldfinger ©

 

Paul Goldfinger has published quite a few of his  Paris photos including this portrait.  One time one of our Paris images  (of the Eiffel Tower)  was used in a commercial in Spain.  I never saw the commercial, but they sent me $100.00, enough to go for dinner at Don Pepe in Newark.

About 10 years ago our photo of the Asbury Park lifeguards was chosen for the cover of the book “New Jersey 24/7”

But now we have some news:  One of our Paris images has been chosen for the cover of a book to be published in London in 2022. This will be our second book cover.

We cannot offer the details now, but this is very exciting, so I will share it with our readers —–Paul

It’s April in Paris, right now.  And it is a fine time to visit that most romantic of cities, but sometimes April there can dip down to the 40’s—sound familiar?  And, despite Yip Harburg’s lyrics, chestnuts in blossom don’t happen till May, and nobody is setting “holiday tables under the trees.”  In Luxembourg Gardens, blooms are starting to pop in April, and they have a bandstand there. However, choose May.

“I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris..
“Whom can I run to
What have you done to my heart”

This song, “April in Paris” was written by Yip Harburg and Vernon Duke for a 1932 Broadway show called, “Walk a Little Faster.”  Harburg also wrote the lyrics for “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”  So many have recorded “April in Paris,” but Count Basie made the most famous version.
