PARIS, 1978

In early spring of 1978 and again in late fall of 1978 I had the opportunity to work in Paris for two weeks each time.  My reason for being there was to do technology sharing with a French company with which my employer was trying to establish a partnership.  Although I was working very hard (for sure) I also had the joy of becoming friends with two of my French colleagues -- one of whose wife was a Cordon Bleu trained chef.  I was doing some photography as part of my working hours but evenings and weekends were for me!  I regret not having 10 times the number of negatives but I cherish those I did get.  This gallery and portfolio are my memories of the City of Light from more than 40 years ago.
