Tour Saint-Jacques at Sunset

Paris Karin and I got stood up at a concert last night (tickets that were to have been reserved weren’t) but, on the bright side, we had a nice ride in the metro wearing our most elegant evening wear and I came away with these shots. (Click on photos for large size.)

Paris By Cell Phone: 2010-09-22: Where Is It Wednesday?

An easy one today so more people have a shot at that coveted Chupa Chups badge.

What’s the name of this famous club and what district is it found in?

Eat Pray Love Julia Roberts

Yesterday (2010-09-19) Paris Karin and I went to the avant-premiere of Eat Pray Love (or Mange Prie Aime) as it’s known here. While this isn’t really my genre of movie (not enough blood, violence or nudity), we did get a kick out of seeing Julia Roberts who was there at the UGC Normandie on the Champs-Elysées to present the film. Here are a couple memories I came away with.

Paris Karin and I had seat in the front row, on the right side, next to the stairs Julia had to mount to access the stage. While this picture of her leaving obviously didn’t come out as I’d planned, I like the overall effect.


Paris by Cell Phone: The Week That Was (12/09 – 16/09/2010)

This is a collection of the pictures I’ve posted this week on my Twitter page (feel free to follow!) for Paris by Cell Phone. As a special bonus, there’s an extra hint to Where Is It Wednesday, as the coveted Chupa Chups badge is still up for grabs!

Sept 12: Holy Sunday

The Grande Mosquée de Paris. Note: I kinda cheated on this one as I forgot to take pictures of this with my cell phone when Jason and I went there, so technically this is not a “Paris by Cell Phone” picture.

Sept 13: Monument Monday

Place de la Bastille, la Colonne de Juillet and l’Opéra de la Bastille

Sept 14: Typical Tuesday

Vide Grenier / Flea Market

Sept 15: Where is It Wednesday

Where is it Wednesday?

As no one found the correct answer, here’s a hint. The man who sculpted this is the same man who designed the statuette for the French equivalent of the Oscars.

The first correct answer wins a coveted Chupa Chups badge!

Steak haché au poivre

Sept 17: Freaky Friday

The Naughty Bits Exposed

An American Mom mentioned she and hers bumped into me and mine (meaning “she and her baby saw me and Paris Karin“) at the Pompidou on the first Sunday of the month. I won’t even try to describe the graphic arts on display there, especially because American Mom did it much better and funnier than I ever could. Still, if you read the comments on her blog, you’ll see she didn’t spend as much time photographing shots of the naughty parts, so there’s a niche I can fill.

What’s more, I can use this post to keep my promise to Keith over at A Taste of Garlic. To thank him for his generous review of my sites, I told him I’d post a little more of the naughty than I did in my spread of the Erotic Museum. Thanks again, Keith!

Paris By Cell Phone: 2010-05-15: Where Is It Wednesday?

As last week’s photo stumped the peanut gallery (scroll down for the photos and the answer), I thought I’d go easy on you this week.

Where is this? Bonus points if you know the name of the sculptor!

As for last week’s question, here is the original photo and the picture I added later as a hint:

The answer is…the Jardin des Plantes. Both figures stand outside the Comparative Anatomy and Paleontology Gallery. Better luck this time!


The Grand Mosque of Paris

Here are some photos to accompany my Prophet & Loss post on Paris Inspired.
