Shopping time...


Let me take you shopping today... After all it's les soldes (sales) and it would be a shame not to take advantage of them! I found this stunning lamp at rue Bonaparte (n°21) in the 6th in the Cyrus Company store (an Italian furniture designer). This head immediatly drew my attention, but it was not the only beautiful thing in the store and I was not the only one admiring it. Of course it's not exactly cheap (about 500 €), but beauty has a price...

  1. I've always wanted to be in Paris for les soldes - someday! I agree that this lamp is striking - but I think I'd prefer to see it in a store rather than my home - it might freak me out a bit at nite with those glowing eyes staring out at me :)

  2. I'm with Monnica, that would totally freak me out! I have to admit that the chandelier in the background is SO much more my style!!

  3. Ok, I love the typical Eiffel Tower shots, but this is what I like best about PDP Eric. These little snippets of daily life and being able to "see" them for us with your camera. Really beautiful this one!

  4. I'm with Michael that I adore the real-life pics showing us life in Paris, along with the beautiful architectural shots of course. I am also with Christie that the chandelier is more my style than this lamp! Though... I do like it. I would admire it very much... in someone else's home, or a store, or a hotel! Yes a hotel. That's where it should be.

  5. Thinking about it, I do have a porcelain mask hanging in my kitchen, from my acting days. That doesn't freak me out too much, so; maybe! Too expensive though.

  6. I love your photos because from a simple thing you tell a story and they are always interesting...

  7. @Monnica " it might freak me out a bit at nite with those glowing eyes staring out at me :)" LOOOOOL!

    @Christie "I have to admit that the chandelier in the background is SO much more my style!!" Actually the whole store is fantastic.

    @Michael "These little snippets of daily life and being able to "see" them for us with your camera. " ;-))

    @Lynn "I'm with Michael that I adore the real-life pics showing us life in Paris, along with the beautiful architectural shots of course." Well I'm trying to make a balance between all this.

    @Michelle "I love your photos because from a simple thing you tell a story and they are always interesting." Awwwww, merci Michelle!

  10. Sales - I love them...would love to be in Paris now. Like Monnica I love the look of the lamp in the shop makes a striking photo but maybe not in my house!
