This is going to be difficult. I promise, within the confines of this elegant post, to discuss my feelings for Paris without the following cliched accompaniments:
- “Je t’aime Paris!”
- “Viva La Paris!”
- Any disparaging mention of Freedom Fries
- I really want a Croissant right now
I feel better.
Occasionally, there is a moment, usually in the middle of a long, dreary drudgery kind of day that will not end, when you see a photograph of Paris and your whole body just sighs, “That’s exactly what I needed. Yes.” If you know of what I speak, then you will also probably guess my reaction to Paris Daily Photo.
Every inch of this simple site is perfect. From the sweet welcome in the About corner, which I always imagine being read by a young Maurice Chevalier (it makes me happy. It’s been a very long day), to the short, enthusiastic captions to the glossy journalistic photographs shouting out snippets of daily life in Paris. It’ll ensure you’re checking out obscenely expensive flights to France in no time at all.
Paris not your bag, baby? There’s also a handy list of links to other City PhotoBlogs. Tokyo, Melbourne, Berne, New York. The world is yours.
