Beautiful View

These beautifully greened up windows were right across the street from my hotel some weeks ago.

Chez Julien

This restaurant is close to a bed & breakfast where I stayed two years ago. I´ve never eaten there and completely forgotten about it until I passed by during my last stay.

Bright colours at Ladurée

Adjacent to the salon de thè on Rue Royale, Ladurée has opened a new boutique. If you just want to buy some sweet treat "à emporter" (to take away") you don´t have to enter the tearoom any more.

First Lady

I discovered this photograph of Carla Bruni Sarkozy at the "Paris Photo". Unfortunately I didn´t write down neither the name of the photographer nor the price of this print.

Inside the Grand Palais

This year the "Paris Photo" took place for the first time at the Grand Palais. I have been at two exhibitions in this building before, but only now I got finally in the main space with the beautiful glass roof and the impressive staircase.

The Grand Palais

The Grand Palais, an exhibition hall and museum complex, was built for the Universal Exposition of 1900. It was designed in the style of Beaux-Arts architecture. The building spans an area of 775,000 square feet in the form of an 'H'. Listed as a historic monument, it is recognisable from a distance thanks to its glass roof, the biggest in Europe.

Pink Hair

I saw this girl with pink hair at the "Paris Photo" in the beautiful Grand Palais. I guess she is a tourist, French girls usually prefer a much more natural hair colour.

Place des Vosges #4

One of my favourite places in Paris - the Place des Vosges. I took this photo only a few days ago, le sigh...

The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is currently showing the first exhibition of Jean-Paul Goude’s work in Paris. This master of style, whose resolutely avant-garde and multidisciplinary work - whether as an illustrator, photographer, and art editor for "Esquire" , or as the director of exquisitely iconoclastic films for Chanel perfumes, or as the orchestrator of spectacular performances, from his former partner Grace Joness groundbreaking music videos to the dazzling parade he staged for the 1989 bicentennial of the French Revolution - constantly blur the boundaries between publicity and high art. The exhibition will close on 18 March 2012.

L´Acteur Grec

I just returned from a short trip (4 days) to Paris! As always time was running and I couldn´t do all the things that were on my list... One of my favourite places is the Jardin du Luxembourg, especially on a sunny and unusual warm november day. In the background of the Greek actor you can see the Panthéon.

Look Up

There are a lot of beautiful things to see in the streets of Paris, but you also have to look up - there is more beauty. Aren´t these decorations around the window gorgeous? On my friend Genie´s blog you can find another photo of this window
