Here in Paris, the warm Spring temperatures draw the city’s residents to the banks of the Seine to indulge in a spot of picnicing, one of the many perks of living in Paris.
I wandered along the river the other evening crossing over from my Left Bank neighbourhood to my favourite bar at Palais Royal and home again a few hours later.
Vive le printemps! 🙂
I have been so inspired to see a friend on the other side of the Atlantic realizing her creative dreams this week. My paths crossed with Jess when she lived in Paris, just before she embarked on a new adventure in Tunis. At the time I could see her wonderful spirit of adventure and infectious passion for fashion as she worked on her own line of jewellery. Now back in Texas, she has brought everything together with the launch of her new online magazine Velvet Dust. Its full of photography editorials and projects, articles and interviews. Check it out, its wonderful.
I took this photo at the weekend in the marais. It was funny because I had to have a few attempts as it was on a busy street and as I was looking through my viewfinder, people kept walking infront of the doorway, waving or sticking their tongues out at the camera. I kept looking up & trying to catch them in the act (not to be menacing but just to smile & show them I found it funny too) but they carried on walking and instantly went back to their poker faces, as if to say “It wasnt me trying to ruin your photo, mademoiselle!”
Speaking of jokers, I’m not sure if this door knocker dude that I stumbled upon is also being goofy or slowly having his brains eaten away by all those snakes….?
