Paris Photos

Out on a day in the 70’s and with sunshine. It’s starting to look like Autumn but it didn’t feel like it. The leaves are starting to change. On these trees, they mostly turn brown but I see a hint of yellow. In the Tuileries Garden. That is not a real tree but a sculpture in iron. I found a place that serves Moscow Mules which wouldn’t be a big deal except they had the famous copper cups. For some reason it adds to the flavor. The view of a sunrise from my couch through...

New French film paints Eiffel Tower engineer as hopeless romantic

Period drama Eiffel portrays the anger the building of the tower provoked in 1880sGustave Eiffel who gave France its famous tower, has long been portrayed as a man of nuts and bolts, a brilliant structural engineer and the architect of iron.A new film that opened in France today paints a rather different, softer picture of Eiffel as a hopeless romantic whose eponymous monument was as much a landmark to love as a triumph of engineering.

ET

The Eiffel Tower was lit up in pink for Breast Cancer awareness. I saw photos, did a little research and foolishly thought it would be pink the whole month of October. I was wrong. I did get some night photos, just not in pink. Included are some day photos when I had an appointment in the area. Here’s the moon crossing the Seine. The moon as I near Trocadero. Here she is along with quite a few people. Day time shot. There are doing a ton of renovation to it so I try to ...

Japanese Guided Tours of the Louvre, Versailles, the Marais & Other Famous French Places (English Subtitles Included)

“As tourist season here in Paris winds to a close and the air once again becomes crisp, fresh, and new,” writes The Atlantic‘s Chelsea Fagan, “we must unfortunately acknowledge that it does not end without a few casualties.” That piece was published at this time of year, albeit a decade ago, when “tourist season” anywhere had a bit more bustle. But the worldwide downturn in travel hasn’t done away with the object of her concern: Paris Syndrome, “a collection of physical and psychological...

Sunset

I think Paris has the best sunsets in the Autumn which has just begun. I like the light early and late in the day as well. Here are a few sunsets I saw in just a couple of days. Looking out my window. I wish I had been outside for this one. The hot air ballon (tethered) in Parc Andre Citroën and the back of the Statue of liberty in a soft sunset. Turning around to see the Eiffel Tower. A boat heading toward the Eiffel Tower which is sparkling but very hard to capture in...

Finally at the end of summer the warm weather has arrived in Provence, driving everyone either inside or to the beach. Luckily, for us our maison du village (house in the village) has stone walls that are over three feet thick. Our maison's wall butts up against the neighbor's maison's wall creating a six foot thick stone wall. Insulation at its finest: Cool interior in the summer, holds heat in during the winter. Our home is a mere four hundred years old... and yes most French household ke...

Mass destruction and social decay go hand-in-hand with zombies, whose shiftless masses inevitably overwhelm any semblance of civili...

‘We were called heretics and ostracised’: the Stranglers on fights, drugs and finally growing up

They brawled with the Sex Pistols, gaffer-taped a journalist to the Eiffel Tower and got thrown out of Sweden twice. Now, for their 18th album and final tour, the punks seem to be maturing at lastAs Jean-Jacques Burnel drily admits, the Stranglers had “a bad reputation for quite a while”. During the punk years, their many outrages ranged from being escorted out of Sweden by police with machine-guns (twice) to gaffer-taping a music journalist to the Eiffel Tower, 400ft up, upside down, without hi...

Everything you need to know about Europe’s Digital COVID Certificate

Traveling around Europe looks a lot different now than it once did. Previously, US citizens could board a flight on a whim, hop a few trains, and visit multiple European countries in the course of a week without even considering potential restrictions or the possibility of not being allowed to cross borders or enter venues. But that was pre-COVID-19. Now European travel means constantly checking the most recent entry requirements, worrying about your PCR test results, and most importantly: Eu...

‘Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time’ Spoiler Review: An Ending 25 Years in the Making

Neon Genesis Evangelion, the groundbreaking, apocalyptic mecha anime series, aired its final two episodes, 25 and 26, on Japanese television in March 1996.

Where to Instagram in Vegas

Between the Bellagio fountains , the replica Eiffel Tower, and the faux Venice canals, Las Vegas is an Instagrammer’s paradise — not to mention the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and the Elvises on every corner happy to snap a selfie with you for a few bucks. There are so many other wonderfully weird spots that might as well have been designed just for social media.

Footage of Cities Around the World in the 1890s: London, Tokyo, New York, Venice, Moscow & More

It is called the Belle Époque, a phrase which brings to mind stylish graphic advertising posters, the baroque Art Nouveau style of Alphonse Mucha, the Beaux Arts architectural monuments of Paris, Chicago, and Newport. These images seem static, backward-looking. Despite their popularity on the poster market, they cannot capture (how could they?) the full expression of what cultural historians also call the fin de siècle.
