V U E from the rooftops of Paris

Sunset over the 13th arrondissement

Since moving to Paris again, I’ve started to document the view from my top floor flat.

The sky is constantly changing and the movement of light across the day so subtle that each photo contrasts from the other.

Whether I’m here for another few days or months, I’m working on a little project bringing together these city views to create a portrait of my local, 13th Arrondissement.

Yesterday I made a little trip to Saint Germain en Laye, all in the name of research. Despite a lot of rain the hidden sculptures in the park made light of grey skies.

V U E . of the day

looking upwards to a house covered in wisteria in north london


North London, UK

Standing before this house of overflowing wisteria I imagined myself in Umbria for a moment, wafts of parma ham and melon intermingling with the scent of flowers and hearty Italian cries piercing the sunshine. The taxi’s horn was a rude awakening that the house stood slap bang in the middle of the winding tarmac streets of Camden, it couldn’t be further from bella Italia.

We need more wisteria here. At least in the midst of all those flowers you can dream.
