Absorbed by the continuing beauty of Paris and surrounded by endless history, which seemed so present, made Marta and I want to work harder to capture every moment of our short trip. One of the main challenges of shooting in public places is to not be distracted by your surroundings, whilst at the same time being considerate towards others who, just like you, hope to take the perfect picture in front of a monument or, in this case, a fountain. As the day wore on, the crowds grew larger and soon we were surrounded by thousands of tourists, all wanting to capture the historic Sacré Coeur Basilica at Montmartre. The more we challenged ourselves, the more we became oblivious to the activity around us and, as Marta pressed the click button, everything around me felt silent.
Outfit: I love bright, vivid colours, and when I’m feeling brave (need to be braver) I can let my imagination fly. Whilst shopping for my Paris trip, I discovered these mildly bold red jeans (does that even make sense) in Topshop. I couldn’t resist them and they have now become my bravest colourful purchase. I also purchased a soft pastel blue knit, and some electric blue pumps, which complemented the jeans, creating a soft, yet bold, pastel spring statement.
