Paris, 6 am

so i woke up this morning at 5 and headed towards trocadero. the idea of seeing the Eiffel Tower by itself was enough of a reason – the last time i was up this early for a photo shoot was in prague, last may.


the pigeons and me weren’t completely alone… a couple of Parisian lovers were watching the sun rise.



i started walking towards saint germain; Paris’ saturday morning streets were empty but for trash collectors, some late party goers walking back home and the omnipresent american joggers; even my least favorite bridge, pont Alexandre III, looked majestic in the golden morning hue.


i ended my promenade with a café crême at Deux Magots.


Gustave Moreau

this was an interesting museum because you could see where the artist lived – his work has never seemed very interesting to me but i thought a lot about my dear professor Ungvari when i was looking at Moreau’s study: there were many beautiful books and various collections of small drawings; the whole room was bathing in a quiet amber light.





La Tour D’argent

things just aren’t the same after claude terrail’s death last year; the owner of La Tour d’Argent, (established in 1582) was a great host; i noticed yesterday that there were more waiters than guests in this great restaurant with still the most beautiful view of Notre Dame. the food was its usual “starry” delicious and delicate of course.




the cheese cart and the wine stay the best in grand restaurants but you to leave your arm and one leg to pay for it!
