Red Balloons in Paris – Part 1

5

The story behind the red balloons. My first trip to Paris this year I had the idea of putting red balloons around the city of Paris and photographing them. I was busy with visitors towards the last month of my visit and never got to do it. As I prepared for my last minute visit this October it was on my list!

Finding red balloons is not easy or inexpensive in Paris. I brought my own balloons from the States but needed to find helium. After a long walk through the 13th arrondisement with my friend Olivier I started to walk home towards the Seine. On my walk I stumbled upon a toy shop with balloons! My thought was now or never… so I purchased a few balloons. I was beaming with my red balloons walking through the city of Paris. Just a few feet out of the shop and one balloon goes POP! Then my decision to ride the metro or bus home was out the window. I was going to walk… all 7 kilometers.

On my way home the sun started to set. I thought first stop would be one of my favorite Paris bridges. Pont des Arts…

After asking them to leave they attacked the balloons with their pens and popped one before running off!

There were a few places around the city that we didn’t get to so we decided to do it again! I will save those images for another post.

Weekend in Paris – Autumn

0

I wish I wasn’t still jetlagged but it seems to have gotten the best of me. Since leaving Paris 6 months ago I have been dreaming about coming back. I am here and sometimes it doesn’t feel real. In some ways nothing has changed which is great. But in just 6 months there have been new places that have popped up that I find along my walks. Of course my favorite part is the Fall crisp air and the crunchy leaves on the ground.

My Paris Fall Wish List

2

Since my decision to go back to Paris this Fall I have been creating lists upon lists. Places I want to see for the first time and some places I want to see again for the 10th time. Favorite bakeries and a few restaurants that I missed out on my last trip. Those lists I will share with you another time. Today is My Paris Fall Wish List. Places I want to see the Autumn leaves fill with colored leaves.

I would love to know if you have any places you would love to see in the Autumn.

 

 

Crazy for Paris Ranunculus

1

I fell in love with Ranunculus flowers while in Paris earlier this year. They were everywhere during the winter. My favorite grouping was the mixture of colors because I could never decide on just one. I can’t wait to have these in my apartment again.
Which color do you like best?
