This is my favourite district of Paris and It miss me so much to wander in Its streets... Some of the pics I took there...
When we think of all the films shot in Paris, Amélie is undoubtedly one of those who have had the greatest impact on our memories. This film was a great source of inspiration for me as a photographer. It is therefore no coincidence that I decided to take pictures of the most legendary places in the film, such as the Café des Deux Mondes and the Moulin grocery store.
It miss me so much not to be able to go in Paris and photograph this city I love so much. Here are some glimpses of my last day in Paris a few weeks ago.
The Tuileries Fair is a family and traditional fair which takes place this year from June 21 to August 25, 2019. It is held each summer in a place steeped in history, the Tuileries Garden. It is organized by Marcel Campion, the same man who manages the Foire du Trône, operated the ferris wheel formerly installed on Place de la Concorde and organized the Christmas market at the bottom of the avenue des Champs Élysées. The Tuileries funfair hosts more than 60 fairground attractions (including 20 rides), wooden horses, ice palace, bumper cars, ghost trains, rifle shooting, duck fishing, trampoline, slide, climbing ...
I love so much these vintage little shops and cafés, I would have love Paris even more when everything was like this.
Located on Place Louis Lépine, between Sainte-Chapelle and Notre Dame Cathedral, the flower market (marché aux fleurs)has delighted all botanical lovers since 1830. Composed of period cast iron pavilions, it allows a pleasant and atypical walk among the flowers, trees and plants. The market took the official name of "Reine Elizabeth II Flower Market" in 2014 during the Queen's last official visit to France. Every Sunday it gives way to the bird market.
The carousels are undeniably part of the Parisian landscape as are the metro entrances, the lampposts, the Wallace fountains ... You can admire them everywhere in Paris (at the Jardin des Plantes, Place Saint-Pierre in Montmartre, Parc Monceau , Place du Trocadéro ...) and immerse ourselves in the Paris of yesteryear.
Located at 2 rue de l'Abreuvoir, in the heart of Montmartre, at the foot of the vineyards, La Maison Rose attracts attention for its picturesque side, its pink color and its green shutters. This house belonged to Laure Gargallo, who was one of the models of Pablo Picasso during his blue period. She painted it pink and transformed it into a small canteen for her artist friends. Its name is also inspired by one of the paintings of the painter Maurice Utrillo dating from the 1900s. Today the Maison Rose is a trestaurant which offers a small menu but composed only of local products and saion.
The story of Ladurée and Its famous Macaron
The café de Flore is legendary, it has been the place for all literary meetings and philosophical debates for almost 50 years. It opened its doors in 1887. Around 1913, Guillaume Appolinaire settled there and transformed the ground floor into an editorial room. He created the magazine "Les soirées de Paris". In the 1930s, it was the turn of writers, painters and intellectuals to take over the premises. Simone de Beauvoir, Jacques Prévert, Jean-Paul Sartre were among the regulars of the Flora. The world of cinema is not outdone and also takes hold of the places: Jane Fonda, Jean Seberg, Roman Polanski, Brigitte Bardot and Alain Delon are regulars of the Flora which is still one of the most legendary places in Paris
