Paris in black and white

united_kingdomI saw Paris in the spring, summer and fall. I want to see it immensely during winter, snowy, cold and deserted. To climb the stairs of Montmartre and freeze my hand on the railing. And get warm in a Parisian café with a hot tea. And take pictures, many, many pictures.

Until then (who knows when I will be in Paris with snow …) I enjoy the beautiful memories and landscapes of Paris in pictures. I tried a black & white version. Here’s what came out (I like them very much):


romania_flagParis in alb si negru

L-am vazut primavara, vara si toamna. Imi doresc enorm sa-l vad si iarna, inzapezit, rece si pustiu. Sa urc pe scarile din Montmartre si sa imi inghete mana pe balustrada. Sa ma incalzesc intr-o cafenea pariziana cu un ceai fierbinte. Si sa fac poze, multe, multe poze.

Pana atunci (cine stie cand voi fi in Paris cu zapada…) ma delectez cu frumoasele amintiri si peisaje pariziene din poze. Am incercat si o varianta alb negru. Iata ce a iesit (mie imi place foarte mult):

The love I have for Paris, in photos

united_kingdomNot everyone understands the love I have for Paris. But for me, France’s capital holds a special place in the heart. Paris is for me:

  • the city from the novel “The Lady of the Camellias” (French: La Dame aux camélias) by A. Dumas
  • Montmartre neighborhood  from my favorite movie “Amelie”
  • the streets of Paris from 2 of my favorite movies of all times “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset”
  • the Seine river and its artists depicted in my childhood cartoons “Sandy Belle” (the seed for my love for Paris started growing because of this cartoon)

I’ve been to Paris 4 times so far, but I would go again, and again, and again…to admire the large boulevards, the white buildings, the Seine, the artists in Montmartre, the parcs, the people…


romania_flagMulti nu imi inteleg dragostea ce o port pentru Paris, dar pentru mine Parisul e:

  • orasul din romanul “Dama cu Camelii” al lui A. Dumas
  • cartierul Montmartre din “Amélie”, fimul meu preferat
  • farmecul strazilor Parisului din “Before Sunrise” si “Before Sunset”, alte filme de suflet
  • raul Sena si pictorii de-a lungul Senei din “Sandi Belle” (desenele copilariei mele, de la care probabil a pornit samanta de iubire ce o port pentru Paris).

Parisul e orasul pe care l-am vizitat de 4 ori pana acum si unde m-as duce din nou, si din nou, si din nou… sa admir bulevardele largi, cladirile albe, anticarii de-a lungul Senei, artistii din cartierul Montmartre, parcurile, oamenii…
