This is one of those slightly random finds that I was about to throw in with my Monday series of 13 Things I Found on the Internet Today, but then I looked closer (rubbed my eyes in disbelief a little), and realised it definitely needed its very own post.
1. A Rooftop Gymnasium in Paris, 1946 French actress Barbara Laage is pictured, photographed by Nina Leen, found in the LIFE archives.
Have you ever seen a strangely misshapen tomato growing in your vegetable garden? A uniquely pigmented plant in your backyard that’s just not like others, able to thrive even in the harshest of seasons?
We’re quite spoilt here in Paris, surrounded by elegant cream-colored stone Haussmanians, gifted with pockets of bucolic cobblestone streets and charmed by old-world cafés and façades.
Harry Smith used to run out into the street to save a paper airplane he spotted from being run over by a yellow cab.
I gave three taps to the door with the ominous Egyptian door knob and timidly stepped inside number 18 Folgate Street in Spitalfields, London.
The beauty standards and criteria aren’t all that different from your typical beauty pageant, except in the nomadic Wodaabe tribe of Niger, it’s the girls who get to judge the boys.
1. Miniature Mom & Pop Facades of NYC Randy Hage’s has spent many years photographing the gradually disappearing street level Mom & Pop storefronts in SoHo and then recreating them in stunning three dimensional detail to preserve memories of their “hand painted signs, layers of architecture, wonderful patinas and intriguing history.” You can see all his sculptures vs the real-life storefronts on his website here.
Social media may be the poster child of the 21st century, but the ideas behind LinkedIn and Facebook go back a long, long way.
I was a ballet school dropout. I was supposed to be a ballerina when I grew up. That was the plan. Madame thought I was special and kept me after class to train me for the Royal Ballet.
Make a toast to Tolstoy, order the chicken Kiev in honour Chekhov, let Stravinksy serenade you with every spoonful of caviar and Pushkin play host in his palatial library of gastronomic pleasures.
It’s a scene straight out of the Jungle Book, only accessible from the outside world by a narrow canal that weaves its way through a parting in the wild and tangled overgrowth, west of Myanmar’s Inle Lake… After an hour’s boat ride passing the bathing water buffalo and the local women washing their clothes, a small jetty welcomes visitors to the village of Indein.
Paris might already have its own Euro Disneyland, but I know a little place, away from the crowds that’s more like the real thing.
It’s not very often that you’ll catch me dedicating an entire post to a fashion brand, but now and again, I tumble head over heels for something truly unique and just absolutely need to share it with you… It’s not often that you come across a shirt that doubles as a hand-painted piece of art, which could sound extremely unwearable, but French brand G.Kero blurs the borders between fashion and art, resulting in the coolest, quirkiest and comfiest shirt you’ll own in your closet.
1. New York, 1900 Found on Reddit. 2. Alexandre Dumas’ hideaway on the grounds of Monte Cristo Castle in Marly le Roi, France Where he possibly wrote The Three Musketeers?
It turns out that Nicole Kidman’s fantastical elephant boudoir in Baz Luhrman’s 2001 motion picture, Moulin Rouge, was not a just a Hollywood embellishment added to the iconic cabaret, but in fact, a very real fixture of the Belle Epoque establishment, forgotten in the archives of Parisian history.
In Paris’ city of the dead, where winding cobblestone pathways have their own street signs, graves look like small gothic houses and the likes of Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf and Oscar Wilde have been laid to rest, there is one grave amongst the maze of tombs in Père Lachaise cemetery that’s not quite like the others.
Miniature museums are often packaged as toy museums or assumed to be a very twee exhibit for doll house enthusiasts, but I virtually stumbled upon an incredible museum located in the French city of Lyon, where when it comes to miniatures, they’re certainly not playing games… Founded by Dan Ohlmann, a renowned miniature artist himself, the Musée Miniature & Cinema is split into two parts: one part miniature museum, with hundreds of incredible scaled scenes by renowned artists from around the world, and another part cinematic museum of special effects, which often links back to the miniature world– because of course the film industry has a long history of using miniature film sets before computer-generated effects became the norm.
They’re calling it balloon craft, “a modern, fresh and cool” take on the classic kid’s party balloon.
Every now and again, I find myself wandering over to the Christie’s real estate website for a good snoop through their Paris files, staring wide-eyed at the dream homes, all the while obliviously dropping croissant flakes over my keyboard.
