Paris photo diary 2

September 25th, 2011

“Souvenirs”: Kusmi teas, Penhaligon’s Eau De Cologne (English company, I know I know), Ladurée Macarons, Etoile Isabel Marant boots.

Itinerary in brief: Palais de Tokyo (though it was mostly closed unfortunately), Musée d’Art Moderne, shopping (Printemps, Repetto, Colette), Jardin des Tuileries, picnic dinner in the hotel room (eat all the cheese etc), Musée de l’OrangerieMusée des Arts DécoratifsLadurée (you have to, don’t you) and a whistle-stop tour of Château de Versailles. We were only there for 3 nights, but we managed to cover quite a bit. I’m back in Paris again in October, with friends this time, so looking forward to doing a lot more eating/drinking (my mum is an awesome travel companion, but as a a tee-total vegan who doesn’t  even drink caffeine, she’s not much fun in that department!).

    Do you think that the marant boots are good quality? I was not convinced when I was holding them..

    Hey there Kris!

    Just found your blog today and totally feel in love with it. Love your photography style.
    I was just wondering… What lens do you use? Is it 50mm 1.4 (Nikon)? Seems like it, ’cause of the lightning and definition..

    Also, these last posts really makes me wanna go back to Paris.. What a photogenic city.

    Keep posting amazing pics :) Bye!

    Lovely pictures of my not so new town. Good luck for your mom, I have a hard time finding vegetarian meals, vegan meals are almost impossible to find :/

  14. Thanks for the Paris shots :) I miss it a lot, and especially Versailles. We use to live about 10 min. away from there and I would love wandering the grounds. What a beautiful place!!!

    Love! I went to Versailles a few weeks ago, the sun was out, I cried as I turned onto Avenue de Paris, so beautiful! Wow a vegan in Paris, I found it hard to even being vegetarian there.

    Love these pictures so much. I used to live in Paris so I get really nostalgic when I see these ones. Question! Are these taking with your 5D or the Fuji one?
