Paris is love and above all love for life, and this, I believe, will never change. It’s been in my thoughts a lot lately since I had to take some life decisions, so here is a little inspiration from vintage Paris 🙂

Recently I read this quote by about cities and sex and age, which went something like that: ‘Every city has sex and age which has nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine, so is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and in this, hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.’ (John Berger) You agree? 🙂
