head in the clouds

hi guys, ca va?

tomorrow’s my dernier jour en paris. one last chance to hit the fleas and a couple brocantes. it’s been all work when i’m not here blogging and i’ve been patiently waiting to flea once more encore!  

we live for the hours we have to leave our laptops and stroll for a snack. every outing is an adventure. you’d think after all these years it would get a little tired. but i guess that’s how paris is; endless inspiration from every angle. going through today’s pics i noticed a recurring theme of green spaces and shooting upward. i’ve been trying to capture a paris without a time. and without all the chaos that’s going on at street level making you realize exactly what year this is!

with my head in the clouds it was heavenly

the colors were vibrant, the sky so bright.

but with feet on the ground you’re bound to find beauty too.

my petit ami took us the long way home through parc du temple.

where i’d never been. loved their green wall

eVeRyOnE was blissed out.

we passed this book in shop window on the way home. the photo is timeless and catches a perfect moment. in the park, at that instant, all was well. that’s how it felt today watching everyone enjoy life at once.

well i have an early am so i’m out. bonne rêves!

    we’re heading back there in february for my birthday and I cannot wait! we were last there 4 years ago and from now until then I’ll be dreaming of the scenes, the streets, the smells, crepes, bowls of cafe au lait, drinking pinot noir outdoors, photographing everyone and everything, staring out at rooftops….sigh.
