At the end of 2013, I'd been living with my now-wife's family in Yorkshire, England. With my 30th birthday quickly approaching in January, she asked me what I wanted to do for the occasion. "I want to have sushi for dinner", I had decided. I've done this every year on my birthday since I was a kid. With there not being very many options for Japanese food in Northern England, our plans evolved to the point where we'd decided to spend a week in Paris. I took all the camera gear the Eurostar would allow me to cram on board (the timelapse dolly kept in a ski bag, as skis travel for free), and so spent the week filming time lapses in Paris' rainy January weather.

After a few days of carrying camera gear around in the rain, Lizzy asked me "Do you really want to spend your whole birthday trip filming stuff?" I paused, thought about this question for a second, and replied "Yes. Yes I do," before clamping my 6D to a metal guard rail on the roof of Printemps.

And yes, we did eat sushi on my birthday.

All but a few of these clips were shot in one week in January of 2014. A small handful were shot on a previous trip to Paris in October of 2012.
