Sweet Explosion: Ladurée Patisserie, Paris

If you want the possibly best macarons in town, you'll have to wait quite some time - it's always crowded at the Ladurée Patisserie in Paris.

The Ladurée Patisserie in Paris is best known for its double-decker macarons of which they sell up to fifteen thousand pieces a day. Macarons are a sweet confectionery and you definitely need to get some if you are in Paris. They even sell them at McCafé.

The Ladurée Pastry Shop at Champs-Élysées is probably the best-known shop, but there are other stores all over Paris and also in the UK and other countries. You can’t miss the green and gold storefront and the windows are always decorated with delicious cakes and treats. But most likely you’ll first notice the crowds of people with large Ladurée shopping bags passing by. If you want to buy macarons and the most famous store, you’ll have to wait in queue for quite some time. Luckily, you can still look around the nice store without waiting for an hour. (It’s a bit dark, so sadly all my photos with slide film turned out too blurry.)

If you don’t feel like waiting in line either, there’s also another smaller store in a mall (next to Starbucks, if you want coffee) where you can get macarons in six flavours for 1 Euro a piece. Just make sure you don’t leave Paris without trying those delicious sweets!

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
