paris je t'aime


"Paris is always a good idea."
Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993)            

To provide an outlet for my Paris obsession I recently created a travel Paris board on Pinterest. Pretty much the same photos are roaming around on Pinterest so I've begun expanding my search to add to my board. This morning I found the black & white photo, taken by Elliott Erwitt (b. Paris, 1928) on the 100th Anniversary of the Eiffel Tower in 1989. (For those interested in his photography, here is his website.) It's the cover photo of his book Elliott Erwitt's Paris. I have to visit the Copyright bookshop on Nationalestraat street to see if they have it so I can browse through it.

I found the photo of the merry-go-round yesterday on Tumblr but unfortunately I had no luck in finding who the photographer is. I love its soft colours.
