Scenes From A Paris Market – A Travel Photo Essay.
“I love Paris because my love is near.” – Ella Fitzgerald
I went to Paris & I fell in love. Really I wasn’t expecting it. I had no real urge to go to Paris and we just decided to include it as a 3 day stop over from London to Venice. We ended up staying a week and still didn’t want to leave.
The light was unbelievable – it bounced off all the buildings, statues and people in just the right way. Everything looks better in Paris, everything. Another great thing about Paris is the markets. They seem to have markets everywhere and they are all fantastic. They sell everything from scarves & trinkets to the most amazing types of cheese & bread. The first day we were there we ended up randomly going to the market where Picasso used to get his fruit – How cool is that??!?
One day I took some photos as we strolled through a market in the Latin Quarter. The entire time I remember being in awe and just wanting to never leave. The wine, the accents, the girls gossiping in beautiful clothes, the cute boys selling cheese – such a feeling of ease and grace encompasses everything in Paris and the markets are no exception. I even saw a bride about to get married at a church on the middle of the market street.
There was something so peaceful, exhilarating & romantic about Paris, I just fell completely head over heels. I can’t wait to go back.
I hope you like the photos and I hope for just a few minutes you feel transported to the amazing city of light.
