我的巴黎日誌

My Paris Diary

To break away from the busy daily role, I had decided to give myself a retreat in April this year.  This time, I decided to spend a week in Paris, a city which I love enormously in no doubt.  People use to say that if one had spent a portion of their lives in Paris when he/she was young, the influence of Paris will remain life long.  Not sure if this is true but I do believe.

The night before I left Hong Kong, I looked at my beloved Leica gear trying to figure out what I should bring along for this journey.  The strange thing was, out of my original expectation, what I had finally decided was------------ a Holga 135BC.  I was just curious to see what kind of chemistry will this toy camera produce in a city like Paris.

Wish you enjoy the photos as much as I do.

Day 1

Arrived at the CDG Airport in dawn, we heard that the railway service had been suspended.  So we had decided to have a cup of coffee before catching the bus.

1. A lady sitting behind us in the airport cafe.  I guess she must be also waiting for the bus.

At about 9:00am, we arrived at the city area.  As the service apartment was not available for check-in yet, we had decided to go for a morning walk around the city.

2. People started to gather at street cafes.

5. Streets were getting more crowded. Bicycles left their tracks on the pavement.

10.  Slowly moving to the east, we found ourselves in the familiar place again. Pei's glass pyramid at Louvre is something we like to see every time in Paris.

11.  It was almost 5:00pm when we came out from Musee du Louvre.  Late afternoon sun fell onto the skin of the glass Pyramid.  I wondered if this is all in Pei's mind when he was designing his architecture.

Day 2

Woke up early on a fine Saturday morning, I had decided to visit the antique market near Porte De Vanves which opens on every weekend.  It took me about 30 minutes to travel with metro train.  The market had already been filled with crowd when I arrived at 9:30am although not every stall was opened.  People enjoyed browsing around for old items very much.

12.  A stall selling old paintings.

18.  Trying to chase this subject for a minute and I finally chose to shoot from a low angle.  Not a very successful one.

After spending 2 hours in the market, I found a cafe at a street corner and decided to have a cup of coffee before taking off to my next stop.

After mid day, I decided to visit Bastille.
