la fromagerie, le bucherie, le pain et les amis

The first student has arrived: Asti from Germany. Kippi, Asti and I spent time photographing some Parisian streets. It's been heavily overcast all day--not ideal for our photos. Ideally, I'd love to have bright sunshine, later in the afternoon or early in the morning, with long cast shadows. But Paris doesn't think we need that, so we'll find other contrasts in our imagery.
The model has arrived: Eva has lived in Paris all her life. She's an actor and has modeled for Parisian artists and art schools for years. She's got some totally cool costumes to wear for us, some totally cool music to play while she poses, and I suspect some totally cool stories to tell.

Here are Asti, Kippie and Eva at La Rotonde.

I think I may be experiencing jet lag. That or I'm just not used to late evenings and so much wine. I crashed early today, as soon as we arrived back at the house, I told Kippie not to wake me for dinner if the aromas didn't wake me, dragged myself up the stairs and climbed into the bed. Woke only to post this; everyone is asleep right now. I hope I can get back to sleep.


  1. Wonderful events, and a pleasure for me to see two of the bloggers I regularly read meeting.

  2. Wow girl, what a trip. I can't wait to see all the pix. Are you back and when can we get together. I want to see your loft and your pix

  3. Gosh I love looking at all these pix of these shops and the people working inside and all of it. I can just imagine these in pastels already. I can't wait to see all the scenery/street scenes you are photographing.
