A Tale of Two Cities in Spring

St. James's Park, London, in April

St. James’s Park, London, in April

Hello, dear friends! I’ve just spent several weeks photographing a spectacular April in London and Paris for clients, amid gorgeous weather and blossoms at their perfect peak. As always, I covered much ground, documenting all the beauty discovered along the way. Join me now on my early morning walks through the gardens, parks and beautiful streets of these most iconic cities. Happy Spring!

I hope you enjoyed this springtime stroll. And I’ve not forgotten my promise for sharing advice on getting to Paris. In fact, I’m working on something very special for you right now. And I’m currently in negotiations to teach a series of photography workshops in Paris over the next year. Hands up (you can email me directly if you’d like gl (at) georgiannalane.com) all those who might be interested in attending. We’re setting up gorgeous Parisian venues and a dream curriculum of study and locations.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

with love,




  • LOVE these!! The swan shot, beautiful! Primrose Hill, like a fairytale. I can see why this latest London trip was fantastic. I can imagine you’re going to have quite some interest in the Paris photography workshop, very exciting.

  • What a lovely way to show blossom-time Georgianna – April in Paris and London.
    I wonder if you had time to visit the Marianne North Gallery whilst in Kew Gardens. She was one of those inveterate Victorian ladies who travelled the world painting botanical specimens of flowers, and her work is a joy to see.

    April 24, 2015
  • Absolutely spectacular, Georgianna! Those first two photographs especially knock my socks off! Love the pink/white/green color scheme that runs through your collection. Happy spring to you!

    Georgianna, These are some of your loveliest photos yet!! Swinging back and forth from London to Paris at this most beautiful time of the year is just breathtaking. Great shots for a future calendar, perhaps??? I LOVE them all!

    April 24, 2015
  • OMG, such a beauty, absolutely love, love, love all those photos. And the swan is posing at a perfect spot for you.

    Just yesterday I came across a scene with blossoming tree and a swan and the swan would not “pose” as I wanted :)

    I don’t how you do it- each photo essay is better and better! Thanks for sharing this tale of two cities, I have not been to either city but plan to get there one day. What a treat to see the blossoms unfold in both places – pure magic! Thanks for allowing us to tag along on your travels!

  • Hi G! I love how you bring a very feminine, emotive charm to all you touch! So very lovely….and springtime, always holds a special appeal after a long, cold and dark winter. Your designs are impeccable – I always feel that I learn from studying them. Thanks for sharing your vision.
    Congrats to you on your upcoming travel/teaching! I’m sure they will be wonderful workshops.

  • I’ve got to tell you, I think that green and white car on Notting Hill is just aching for me to claim it. I can tell it wants to come and live happily ever after with me.
