There is a French excess in this blog, admittedly but what can I say, it is a photogenic country and coincidentally, Paris happens to be a European capital I’ve visited twice in the past year. This post is more or less a visual diary of this September’s observations of the city. I had the privilege of just walking aimlessly for hours, watching daily life unfold and would have loved to photograph even more lovely sightings (stumbled on a private party in a courtyard, kids playing with their parents in a park, just cute couples sharing loving, bashful gazes in cafes) but such real-life snippets were simply too precious and intimate to intrude in with my camera (bad enough I was already gawping in real life at people just wanting to live their lives). Instead, I hope the following shots interest you!
I don’t have a clue what this is about apart from the fact that it’s some type of a puppet theatre but the beret and the baguette is just a super awesome cliche!

While my favourite season for Europe is still the burning hot summer of June and July, it’s hard to deny how beautiful, atmospheric and even more authentic Paris is in autumn (when the millions of tourists start to disperse and the raw realities of daily life takes over again). Don’t hesitate to make a trip there just because temperatures are climbing down (or maybe for some people this is the favourite season and summer is too hot). Every time I leave this city, I immediately imagine what it would be like when I return again, explore yet another one of her delicious neighbourhoods and keep trying to capture her essence. And this trip was definitely not an exception to those sentiments.
