Paris #1 – Curiosities, Textures, Details

Photography / Travels

Still waiting for the positive scans and the final film from Paris but decided to keep this regular posting thing up and, again, divide things into themes. Since I really want to make a post dedicated to the more landscape/architectural-type pictures I took whilst in Paris, I thought it would be a decent idea to post some miscellaneous pictures that stood out to me for different reasons – whether that be particular textures, lighting effects, colours, composition, etc. There’s even a very ironic one of an industrial crane leaning against the classical and elegant columns of the Louvre – nice little bit of aesthetic contrast there.

I have a lot of exciting projects coming up – I’m starting a YouTube channel and probably a little lifestyle/beauty blog to go along with it once my new apartment is properly organised and I’ve fallen into the routine of my MA programme, which is very demanding (but extremely interesting).

I’m also starting a collaboration with fellow blogger Caterina Petrucci and will hopefully be taking photographs of her soon. Go follow her! She’s a proper internet celebrity, but she’s the nicest girl ever and I’m very excited about all these future projects.

There’s still another little post about Manila to come in the meantime and two more about Paris (architecture and Pere LaChaise).

The featured image up top was taken at the place where Gabri and I went for lunch every single day while in Paris. It was called Café Le Baron and they had the most amazing food and did the greatest set menus for lunch. The only day we didn’t go there was because it was Sunday and they were closed (boo). If you’re in Paris sometime soon definitely pop over there for lunch (order from the set menu, since the proper à la carte is twice as expensive).

I miss Gabri a lot, but hopefully I will get to see him as soon as November kicks in. I’m in desperate need of hugs.

As usual, keep the likes, comments, feedback coming! And if you hear of any possible opportunities for photographers/photography assistants in the London/Brighton area feel free to contact me directly!
