La Pâtisserie Ladurée / Salut de Paris!
I had to take these pictures while shooting from the hip, because the staff of Ladurée, Fabricant de Douceurs & Gourmandises à Paris were quite insistent that no photography was allowed inside their shop, as it slowed customers down. Well, true that. I take it that the ‘slowing people down’ part is the important one (I hope) and so I took photos without slowing anyone down, and without aiming and focusing properly, resting the camera on the counter and moving along at the pace of everyone else and guessing as best I might as to the angle and composition. I like them well enough for that – though I would have loved to take a properly composed careful photo of all their wonderful pâtisseries and macarons. Oh well.
Photos of églises, la tour Eiffel, les Champs-Élysées, l’obélisque égyptien &c to follow … eventually. For now: Salut de Paris!
