#2362 Postcards from Paris

Hey gidday mates! Let’s be honest: I’ve been super AWOL for the past few weeks. I’ve been having one of those moments in life where everything comes to a head at the same time — I’ve been crazy with work, there’s been an onslaught of Kiwi arrivals in New York, life has all of a sudden changed at an extremely rapid pace so everything I used to take for granted is no longer a given, and, also, I walked into a pole on Friday night and punctured my eyelid, causing an excess amount of blood to spill on my favourite polka dot shirt. Thankfully, my eye is intact, though my dignity and pride may be a little worse for wear. All that has added up to me not really wanting to blog. You know how it is, you go through phases with things. These past few weeks have been insane, and sometimes you need to focus on the things that are going to keep you alive through the storm. One thing I’d been meaning to do for almost two months now is get my final disposable camera developed, and I took it into the store a few weeks ago, but only got round to editing the photos today. This is part one of a two part series, showcasing my last few days in the City of Lights — there are a couple of fashion week moments, some general touristy stuff, and all those classic shots you’d expect from a non Parisian running around the city. Hope you like them, and thanks for sticking around. Youuuuuuuuuu’re my mate.

Me and Esther Burdett in the Tuileries Gardens.

The Ferris Wheel near Rue de Rivoli.

An art installation at the Gagosian Gallery near Charles de Gaulle Airport on the outskirts of town, where we watched the Raf Simons show.

YSL’s takeover of the Grand Palais — our final show of the season.

I took this one with Michael Hainey in mind. #CarWatchingInParis.

Neigh! I saw this guy outside the Thom Browne show.

Pretty sure this was also on the day of the Thom Browne show, but I just liked the general starkness of the moment.

Perseus and the Minotaur — a story my Dad used to tell me when I was really young.

That same shot I always take of the Eiffel Tower just above Palais de Tokyo.

    I’ve taken the same pic of the Eiffel tower from that spot too. I love how it kind of just appears out of no where when you’re walking up the road from Palais de Toyko…
