Paris, March 2014
Usually I’ll be one of the first persons to embrace the coming of Spring (if only I could get rid of the hay fever that comes with it since a few years). But for once I wish Winter could have been longer. My time in Colorado (and the Western US) has been unforgettable. This zombie is currently wandering the streets of Paris for a few days before taking a train to a place called home. As always Paris is grandiose. But there’s just too much going on in my head to fully enjoy it. I see photos all around me, I’m just not in the mood to capture them. Maybe it’s time to get inspired by an old master: this evening I’m going to the Henri Cartier-Bresson exposition in the Centre Pompidou. No doubt it will be great, I’m one of many that admire his work. Lets just hope I’ll leave inspired and not discouraged :-). And on Sunday a contemporary master awaits me in the Maison Européenne de la Photographie: Martin Parr. Really looking forward to this second exposition I just found out about. Winter, Colorado, … Annie, I miss you. See you.
Self-portrait with a friend in a Parisian bakery window. With this photo I officially launch my new blog. This summer I cycled across the United States. In six days I am flying back to the States for two months. I will be staying in Estes Park, Colorado and go on a road trip to California. My intention is to keep some sort of photo journal of this trip. I am thinking something along the lines of a daily photo post. But I don’t want to call it my 60-days-photo-project or however you call such a thing. Simply because there might be days without photos and I can perfectly live with that. We”ll see where this blog goes in the future.
