I was lucky to get a chance to visit Paris last month. It was my first time, and it was EVEN MORE MAGICAL THAN I HAD HOPED. There was one moment when a man started playing an accordion on the metro in a beret, while I was eating a crusty french sandwich. What!
I spent most of my trip wandering around outside, and I snapped photos of anything particularly inspiring that I came across. Have a look!
Street Art is everywhere in Paris! The good kind. Stencils, posters, and even mixed media pieces. (See photo #4: that figure is in a cloud of glitter.)
Flea Market of Saint-Ouen
This flea market really felt like the manifestation of some shopping wish-fulfillment fever dream. Just endless rows of antiques and treasures. The market's spread throughout a few unique little booth neighborhoods, each with a totally distinct atmosphere.
Wes Anderson's natural history museum. 170 years old, and it shows in the best ways.
