Light chasing in Montmartre

21

Having a home was something I fought for a very long, three years to be exact. I loved the freedom to be able to pick up and leave at a moments notice. But part of the nomadic life was that I was always thinking where I was going next and for how long. Now that I have my own space its been so refreshing to be able to focus on my work. The ideas have been flooding in like you can’t believe. I have been a project junkie for most of the summer. I have a few new partnerships coming along as well as a whole new project I can’t wait to share. It will take a while to put all together but its been fun bringing one of my best friends on for this project.

As the weekend begins here is a little light chasing in Montmartre. The whole light chasing series will be available for purchase soon. Stay tuned for more details…

Left Bank Light

Chasing the light has become a passion of mine lately. I will admit I have been known to cancel plans in Paris when I just didn’t feel like sitting inside when Paris was about to put on the most beautiful light show. The buildings literally illuminate with the sunlight. This one I call left bank light since that is where I found this beauty off the streets of St Germain.

The thing is I loved Chasing the light so much in Paris I created a whole collection around it. It will be a little while until everything is fully put together but there will be a sneak peak if you are lucky enough to live in Chicago. I will be at Wells Street this weekend. More details to come! xo

Paris time… chasing the light

My days have been filled lately with chasing the light. People always ask me what my favorite thing to do in Paris and I usually say walking. I walk for hours and hours discovering new parts of the city. But lately with this morning and evening light I have picked up a new activity… simply chasing the light. If you are wondering what exactly that is. I simply follow where the light is hitting the streets and buildings. It sounds easy but its all about timing.

You see this light isn’t so easy. Paris likes to play hiding games with the sun and can be moody at times. The sun rises around 6:15 these days so that means very early morning strolls. But they are worth it!

Then you also have the afternoon light which is so lovely when you find a hidden courtyard in St Germain de pres.

Just as the sun begins to set you can find the light hitting the buildings just right. Last night I found myself chasing the light which sun sets around 9:15. It makes for very long days but when the right is just right you can’t go wrong in Paris.

If you have the chance to watch the sunset in Paris head over on the Seine to Pont Alexandre III. Grab a picnic if you can and sit on the water. The lanterns glowing with the sun is one of my favorite sights in Paris. Enjoy!
