I was lucky enough to visit Paris near the end of last year. It was only my fourth time in the City of Light, but somehow I always feel at home there. My French is horrible, but that doesn’t stop me from roaming the streets, getting a little lost and seeing what I stumble across. This trip included tasty crepes at Marché des Enfants Rouges, an evening with new friends at La Belle Hortense (a cozy wine bar/bookshop) and a catching a film at the old-school cinema Le Desperado. A few times I even shut off my iPhone and left my map at the hotel to see where I would end up. Exploring with no plan at all, I managed to wander through a Julie Delpy film shoot near Place de la République and a Karl Lagerfeld-Gisele photo session in the Latin Quarter…on the same day!
Just like in New York, walking through the city streets of Paris gives you a feeling of being truly alive. The urban energy, the architecture, the food and wine, it’s all perfect. I’ve been meaning to put up my photos since I came back, and with the horrible events of last week, it seems like the right time to share my love of Paris.
