travelling love: paris.


i've been to paris 4 times in my life. the last time was in march 2012 - i stayed there because i had tickets for florence + the machine à la zénith. most of the pictures here were taken 2009, when i visited paris with my BMF. i hope you'll enjoy the photos!

i'm always in search for picture frame or frame-like photo subjects. this was in the jardin des tuileries.

... and a camera toss in front of the arc de triomphe.

la tour eiffel. it was built for the exposition universelle 1889 in paris. after the fair they wanted to deconstruct it but the parisians already gave their hearts and souls to the tower, so it remained. now it is THE symbol of paris. an icon.

a fountain in the castle garden of versailles.

la grande arche at la defense.

a marathon in the rain. there were some people who wore very strange ... sports gear - one of them wore an egg costume. no joke !!!

  4. Oh wie schön :)

    ja zumindest als es gerade frisch auf den Markt gekommen ist..
    Ist natürlich auch ziemlich gewagt, solch einen Wechsel im Genre zu machen nach so einem Welterfolg, aber gerade der gibt ihr ja die Möglichkeit dazu..

    echt? :D Ich les am liebsten eig die Rezensionen auf Amazon & Co :D hahaha

    lg,

  5. Tolle Fotos! Ich war erst einmal in Paris, aber da bin ich mit der Stadt nicht so warm geworden...

    Tolles Foto von der Mona Lisa, ist ja nicht so einfach, sie ohne andere Touris aufs Bild zu bekommen ;)
