16th Arr


C'est comme une page d'un livre 

[ it is like a page out of a book]

This was my first view of the grand dame, the beautiful 'Eiffel Tower'
It was so breathtaking like it is for every new Paris visitor that I had to stop and awe about it and take a picture. The park backdrop made it so vintage, such a perfect fall image. The sign on the side marks it as a Parisian daily life and I think it was another perfect moment <3

Skyline


My skyline picture.  Really with Paris words are sometimes redundant .

The other France


This is not a Paris Picture as you can instantly tell. But nevertheless I decided to share it because it's a France picture, because I'm wearing a very chic outfit (Paris fitting indeed) and because I love it.
I was at the Lourdes Shrine in Lourdes, France. A highly catholic town in the south of france. Tourists outnumber locals, and all you see is catholic souvenir shops left and right.
Though I was raised Catholic, I'm not a fervent believer, but I went on my mothers petition and I found it a great respite from my trip, it was beautiful indeed.

the paradox


This picture seems out of a fairy tale, the castle on the right, marking a skyline out of our childhood dreams. The Seine crossing the bridge, we can almost imagine the canoes bringing princess of a far away land to meet the princesses of France.
And then you turn left and see the cars, moving slowly through the lane. The evening falling upon them, and yet still not enough for the lights to come on.
Paris is always a paradox.
