Got back from Paris late last night. Had a wonderful time! The weather was crap, but we had fun anyway. And I don’t think I’ve ever done this much shopping in such a short time! I was shocked by myself! But much more on that some other time – here’s my three favorites of the many pictures I took in Paris. To me, all three are atmospheric and special in their own unique way.
The mannequin above with the dirty and tattered outfit rendered me speechless. It was placed outside an ordinary restaurant for no apparent reason – other than being beautiful.
The red balloon in the picture below – discovered by Mr. Boyfriend – stole my heart away. It could be the cover of a great novel or the movie of the year. This simple picture could tell so many stories …
And how could I resist this sad dog staring into the rain?
If you’ve got a thirst for more Parisian atmosphere, check out one of my favorite playlists Les jeunes filles français. It’s a collection of songs by French female singers who, to me, all have a certain something … something that makes me think of the streets of Paris, spring days and old black and white movies. My favorite singers on the playlist are: Brigitte Bardot, Édith Piaf, Juliette Gréco and the amazing April March.

Smukke, smukke, smukke billeder fra byernes by, magiens hovedstad, smukkeste Paris. Jeg bærer konstant rundt på en længsel efter at komme dertil igen; jeg får aldrig nogensinde nok af den parisiske atmosfære og stemning.
Jeg er ellevild med billede et især. Det er virkelig smukt.
Tak Rikke! Og billede 1 er også mit yndlingsbillede fra hele turen!
I like the dog one. Balloon one is a bit blurry, but I agree with you, that it could be inspiration for many different stories.
BTW I did listen to that Flow book you told me about. I thought it was pretty good. It explains some things I sort of knew but put it in a clear way that made sense. I think it is worth reading/listening to.
Hi Matt, I’m so glad you liked it! As much as I like reading about stuff I know nothing about, sometimes it’s nice to read something I already know, just explained in a new and inspiring way.
And yes, the balloon pic is a bit blurry … but I had to share it! I posted it on Instagram the same day, and someone commented that they’d just seen a lonely blue balloon. It could be a great idea for a series of lonely balloons around the world …
