the parisians


“Every city has a sex and age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and, in this, hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman” – John Berger, English Painter

What’s the conexion with the image? None in particular. I just like the quote. Those of you who have been to Paris might understand it better. Or, on the other hand, maybe it’s just me..

si unde spuneai ca ai invatat photoshop? nu de alta, insa nu e rau deloc. stii ce imi place la tine? ca iti personalizezi fotografiile foarte mult. nu ai nevoie de semnatura, procesarea in sine e o semnatura. felicitari

ooooh i absolutely love love the tones to this picture, it's very good to see you, long time you gone :)

@Bogdan. Nu vreau sa fiu nepoliticoasa, insa nu esti wellcomed here :)

@Elaine- Indeed, long time.. I hope to change this aspect in the coming months.

nu ma asteptam de la tine. nu credeam ca esti influentabila asa de usor. oricum, asta nu imi schimba parerea despre fotografiile tale.

Bogdan, in mod normal m-as enerva. Insa ceva imi spune ca nu se merita. Nu are nicio legatura cu daca sunt sau nu influentabila. Sau ce? Nu e normal sa nu imi placa de un om care imi trimite discutii care nu ma privesc, despre lucruri care nu ma intereseaza? Sunt cateva greseli mari pe care cineva poate sa le faca in relatia cu mine, iar asta e una dintre ele. Sunt foarte selectiva, prefer lipsa companiei oamenilor, decat un cerc vicios de prieteni.
Iti multumesc pentru consecventa in ceea ce priveste fotografia mea. Si daca iti lumineaza ziua, te mai astept. E o lume virtuala libera. Insa nu te crede ca o sa devenim best buddies doar pentru asta :)
Merci pentru intelegere.

Esti o femeie incredibila. In a good way. Si cum spune, tot americanu', will see about being friends or not. Time will tell :))

romina said...

Time says NOT! :))
Have a good day.

I like the quote too and understand the gist of it. There are states in US that have personalities; at least in my mind. I'd love to see Europe, but have come to realize I most likely never will. Only through the lens of others. Nice treat.
