going nowhere fast
bonjour gang! hope you’re well and things are going your way. if not, hop on a plane and get over here toute de suite! it was my first day to just stroll around paris with no agenda.
i could have gone to a museum but really just wanted to wander. guess i had a tiny plan subconsciously cause i ended up at some of my favorite haunts looking for books and drawings.
there’s always something incredible tucked in a folder that no one seems to care is a hundred years old.
everything is old here so i guess it’s just de rigeur to the locals. i love to imagine the city as it was, when it was all brand new. well parts were new. funny how the faces of the people seem the same.
i’m normally only on the seine when crossing banks so it was fun to take it all in. the vendors are really uptight about taking photos so i didn’t even bother since i am tired of being yelled at.
but it was fun to wander aimlessly, there are lots of details i miss in a rush. tomorrow two more guests are coming so it will be back to a high energy daily vie.
j’adore french grafitti and it’s easy to miss.
anyway i didn’t score anything better than my treasures from the flea the other day. just kept an eye out for details and sunshine.
oh, and second hand shops. one of my clients is looking for vintage goodies so i needed to check my sources.
anyway since you enjoyed the sketches from the flea i thought you may like to see some more detail. i personally can’t stop looking at them!
there are still a few more there, i’m debating whether to get the rest and put together a little book on chairs cause every style is represented.
to think they can be gone with one swipe of an eraser. it’s hard to believe someone could draw this precisely. but then i can’t draw a thing so this amazes me.
ok well, it’s now 2am and genvieve arrives at 7am so i best hit the hay or i’ll be useless à demain. à bientôt! ps i know i’m making up my own language half the time so please don’t be offended if you’re french :)
