Paris, 1962

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

I'm in such a Parisian mood after swooning over these photos by Tom Palumbo. The whole series consists of images from Paris cafés and nightlife in 1962. They capture the essence of a different era, creating a mood of romance and intimacy. Loves, fancy a slice of Paris today? xoxo

P.S: More Paris here!

Sophia's Lover said...

The Taj, mayhap, to you may seem, a mark of love supreme
You may hold this beauteous vale in great esteem;
Yet, my love, meet me hence at some other place!
How odd for the poor folk to frequent royal resorts;
‘Tis strange that the amorous souls should tread the regal paths
Trodden once by mighty kings and their proud consorts.
Behind the facade of love my dear, you had better seen,
The marks of imperial might that herein lie screen’d
You who take delight in tombs of kings deceased,
Should have seen the hutments dark where you and I did wean.
Countless men in this world must have loved and gone,
Who would say their loves weren’t truthful or strong?
But in the name of their loves, no memorial is raised
For they too, like you and me, belonged to the common throng.

...thanks.

Paris? I wish! But then, if I went to Paris I'd miss the Chicago blizzard, so I guess I'm going to stick it out and stare at these lovely photos instead.
