Through the objective of a lomo camera, all which surrounds me seems to me more alive, more exceptional, as if in every shoot I saw for the first time.
And it’s in Paris where these moments are most precious. This city, abound of History and magic places, offers me every time of the unique feelings which I find no leaves somewhere else.
Younger, the provincial credulous of the Southeast of France than I was saw Paris as one excess grey and sad big city, a city where the inhabitants, spending too much underground time, forgot the heat of a small sunbeam, forgot that they could set 2 seconds of them precious time to smile and take advantage of the life.
But at this moment I didn’t still know Paris and the Parisians, then my ignorance and my prejudices literally flew away as soon as I even began to take advantage of all this city abounds, of all that our capital and her inhabitants have to offer, so visually as emotionally !
Naturally, as every tourist worthy of the name, the first visited places were the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur, Pigalle, Notre-Dame, the Louvre and the Jardin des Tuileries to join finally the Place de la Concorde and the Champs Elysées, and more…
But in this blog I shall publish only lomographics moments which most moved me, these unique moments when I was in my bubble, where I lived my Parisian dream through the objective of my Lomo LC-A !
You’ll see, among others, the Seine in the chaotic sky, an Eiffel Tower loved by all there which surrounds her, an appearance exit straight ahead of a book of science fiction, a divine temple where we expect to receive a mysterious prediction, the mixture of ancient and modernity… you’ll see what Paris is for me, a place where the reality becomes a dream !
