Currently Listening To | Blue Devil

Dear fellow Babblers,

It’s been a blue devil of a week. A week of rain. A week of tears. A week of foolish burns over a toaster. A week of going home smelling like sour milk and banana bean smoothies. A week of developing a little crush on a special someone only to have those little flutters crushed with the piles of garbage I bring out of work every night. A week of muscle aches.

Dreams and art are created on off the other and it’s this coexistence between the two that brings me back to Paris, making it harder and harder for me to leave again each time. I often come to Paris and walk, observe and photograph moments, daily life and the art of the city, becoming a part of my own art. Ever since I’ve moved to France I’ve become increasingly fascinated with the art that I’ve discovered living within all the big touristy sites of Paris, but also even within it’s garbage piles. This post I’m writing off a stream of consciousness to share with all of you my fleeting and lasting impressions of Paris and how I’ve managed to capture the artistic capital of the world behind a lens.
