Milano, 28 July 2012

Milan has always been a dream of mine ever since I was a student at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology back in the late eighties. The turning point for me back then was an article in an issue of American Photographer back in 1988 (there was one other article in that same issue which covered the then new trend of photographing shoes, in which the author termed "footography", but I digress.) Anyway, that article which made the turning point for me was about how back then many photographers who were somewhat disenchanted of the job situation in NewYork fled to Milan to seek work and soon discovered that they were getting lots more work than they did in New York. It was then that I thought hey, Milan is the place to be... And it is!

Paris, 09 July 2012









Paris has been wonderful as always... Last night for example, Michèle and I and our friends, Cécile and Lise ate at my favorite restaurant in all of Paris, La Marine. It is located at the Canal St. Martin area, and  it has been a favorite destination of Michèle and I for the last ten years or so. It is such a great restaurant... I recommend it highly! The other photos in this post are from the previous days.

Paris, 05 July 2012








Today I stumbled upon an event on rue de la Paix. It was an event held at the maison de Joaillerie, Mellerio dits Meller... A chic boutique which specializes in haute jewelry. The people and the setting were quite nice... Except that it felt like a sauna inside the boutique!

Paris, 04 July 2012


Today I arrived in Paris somewhat drowsy and with a slight headache, but never mind that... What got me through it all was looking at all the wonderfully stylish Parisien women going about their business.
