paris photo diary: day two.
February 4, 2014 § 8 Comments
Let’s get back to trip recapping, shall we?
Paris is always a good idea.
Audrey sure had it right.
Going through and editing these photos had me just so smitten, and of course I fell head over heels for this city all over again.
That’s all it took.
Every corner, every sign, every building and every detail in every scene just takes your breath away.
Walking those narrow streets, glancing up at the gorgeous architecture, catching sound of the beautiful french language, rounding a corner to the smell of fresh baguettes at a boulangerie, and people watching – oh the people watching – are things I could never tire of in a city like Paris.
After a night of much needed sleep, my friends and I hit the ground running and didn’t stop all day.
We walked everywhere…
In and around our apartment neighborhood…
…by the Eiffel Tower with picnic essentials in hand…
Kathryn: You can see the Eiffel Tower through your glasses! That could be a cool photo!
Me: Oh fun! Let’s see what it looks like
Me: Oh dear, oh no, oh no no no that’s just way too much of me and my face…
Kathryn: Oh stop it’s a great photo
Me: Maybe I’ll just keep this one for the scrapbook and spare my poor blog readers from this much face zoom…
…so much for paying attention to myself. Kathryn was right, it does make for a cool photo, so hopefully not too many of you are scarred by the magnitude of facial zoomage, or lack of lip balm.
…down the Champs-Élysées…
…into the beloved Ladurée for tea and pastries……around the corner to Avenue Montaigne where we passed many of the fabulous French designers, L’Avenue (a darling little restaurant I went with my parents on my first trip to Paris over ten years ago!), the Canadian Embassy and, of course, the Plaza… …back down the Seine…
…by Place de la Concorde… …and of course Ponts des Arts.
Seriously, take me back.
