These photos are taken from a few years ago and a combination of a couple of trips, both in October, with the leaves reddening and lining the Tuileries and the early autumn sun drenching the rooves of perfectly French apartments.
This layout is pretty much my perfect day in Paris, starting with a leisurely stroll to Montmarte for the best view of the city atop the Sacre Couer, whilst popping into bookshops, taking a literary route mapping where all the famed artists and writers of the 20s and 30s once worked and ending at my favourite place in the world.
Ironically, none of these photos were taken in the rain, although after being caught in a freak thunderstorm in Montparnasse cemetery and dashing into a deli for cover, I can safely say that I can picture how "drop dead gorgeous this city is in the rain". Until next time Paris, but I promise I won't leave you as long. x
