RIP Romano

You may have had the same personal experience if you have ever visited the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris. Entering this place named after Seigeur François d’Aix de La Chaise who lived there until 1709 can be found a map locating all famous people buried in here. Even if the average peaceable atmosphere can be felt, something more in the air surrounds this place. It is a different cemetary, more than some place were people rest, and you quickly get caught visiting the graves of people who inspired you : painters, singers, poloticians and other key figures who left their mark on their era. At their beside, people have left flowers, candles and love messages in different languages. Well, the Père-Lachaise actually belongs to everyone in the World. While walking in the alleys we could enjoy an exceptional light. Scattered sunbeams and dead leaves falling from trees made a great contrast with the ambient cold atmosphere. A touch of melancholy was in the air this day, feeling accentuated by a diffuse haze.

Looks the 3 April 2014 by Max as "the driver"

We’ve been travelling a lot around France the last few weeks. Rennes, Nantes, Paris, Bordeaux and now Marseille. For this occasion, Romano was my tourist guide. He took me to a small village called Goudes in the famous “calanques” area, located on the coast. Hidden in the rocks was an old blockhouse from World War 2 overlooking the sea. Aviator jacket on my back, I could enjoy this great view on the Mediterranean sea while looking for the sun to decline slowly. The night was coming and the light became different creating a change in the atmosphere. As always I couldn’t stand still and flew away like a shadow in the cliff.

On the rooftop

For this photo shoot I went to this place called Friche Belle de Mai. Remember, I took you there once on a sunny day of February 2012 (Cf Marseille’s Wildland). Now they have built a new cultural area. This old tobacco factory which was in a total state of neglect, has been rehabilitated in a 5 floors building with shops, a library, exhibitions and a 475m² rooftop. This large space is a place for parties, open-air concerts, original exhibitions and offers an exceptional view on Marseille. Here, I am wearing quite a simple outfit: black jeans and a wool bomber jacket with fake-leather sleeves, brigthened up with a sunset printed t-shirt matching the light we had this day to perfection. The election blue high-top sneakers are adding some more color.

Quai des Antilles

Looks the 10 March 2014 by Joe the "tire-remover"

Few weeks ago we went to Nantes for a few days off. Before meeting some of our readers in a bar, Romano and me went for a walk around the bar located at the famous place called “Hangar à bananes”. This place was built to stock bananas in a time when Nantes was the main port in France importing goods from the colonies. Since then, the site was rehabilitated for entertainment with bars, restaurants, a night club and a theater. YThere you can drink and eat enjoying the Loire’s riverside. In this post-industrial scene, I’ve discovered the relics of this ancient port activity.

The man and the cat

Looks the 4 March 2014 by Tony the “Cement maker“

Gustave is a cat who likes water and caresses (he is more a dog than a cat actually). That’s why we got along easily. A lot of black is announced this season. Here it is, incanated in a kitten walking in the midle of a large Parisian appartment. Emerald and gold eyes, Gustave know how to touch you even when spilling his glass of milk. A Parisian Chat Noir who gave his name to this great Montmartre Cabaret – Icon of romantism where all the Parisian elite was gathering at the end of the 19th century – this black cat may be Gustave’s ancester. Here is our first animal feature in a shoot. Gustave took the pose with great professionalism.
