#1942 Paris – a week in photos

Me and Caitlin Lomax in front of her apartment.

My Canon G11 was stolen a week and a half ago. Desperate times called for desperate measures, but all was solved when a friend tweeted that he was selling his camera (I told him I’d buy it and it’s getting shipped over in the next couple of weeks); and when another friend showed me the photos he’d taken with a disposable camera in Paris. Disposable cameras: €5.50. One hour processing: €11. The difference between digital and film: Priceless. For everything else, there’s photo booth. What follows is a week in real-life, hold-in-your-hand, printed-on-paper photographs.

The Eiffel Tower, as seen from my balcony.

Caitlin Lomax and Edmond Roosendaal at a Tabac.

Edmond, Caitlin and me outside a really bad FrItalian fusion restaurant.

My front door.

The gate along Jardin du Luxembourg, which I walk past every day on my way to my friends’ apartment.

Everything I need for a good night out at La Perle.

Attempting to go sockless in my Mark McNairys again.

A prospective outfit, including the orange/magenta reversable shirt that Zambesi sent over to me last week.

A glimpse of sky above buildings.

My three pairs of shoes.

My freshly altered, one-and-a-half-breasted Zambesi suit, which arrived last week. (More photos in the next week or so.)

    Your photo’s retain their  true Isaac- spring freshness, but boy, the quality of these cheap camera’s does not compare. I really hate these nasty thiefs.
    Of all the camera’s available, why do they have to take yours???

    Whatever camera you will get now, do lasso and brand it!! With a red hot  iron… very small, of course.

    Your fan!
