Paris Skyline

Over a Dog‘ – Marvin Udall, As Good as it Gets.


Just spare a thought for the poor missus on this one. I’m walking around with her camera, taking a picture of everything that moves.

Or in this particular scrapbook, things that don’t move. Somedays she’d wait patiently, others not-so. One day we walked down a side alley off Champs-Élysées and we saw a dog take a shit against a tree.

This aroused my scatological sensibility and I screamed orgasmically, telling her to hold me coffee as I grappled with the lens cap,

He’s not pissing on a tree, this dog is shitting on it. Arse pressed on the bark! LOOK!!

I missed the shot. Like 99% of the worlds population the missus found the experience of me trying to capture a dog shitting on a tree, utterly unedifying.

You can take a man out of VIZ but you can’t take the VIZ out of the man. We walked over 30k that weekend, I can’t tell you where most of these were taken.

I guess within a 30k blast radius of our hotel near Rue Du Bac.

UPDATE September 2018

I’ve since returned a few times to Paris. I’ve written extensively about James Bond locations from A View to a Kill.

I’ve done a thought piece on why the French don’t have a word for hobby.

Parisians are infamous for their fashion and I’ve captured a few photos for a street style blog. Overall I can’t say they’re better dressed than the Italians.

If you’re looking for an interesting area to visit in Paris then I’d recommend La Defense. I recently stayed at Pullman’s hotel nearby. It’s very business orientated and quite pricey.

However, situated close by is the Grande Arche and from the top you have a great vantage point of Champs-Élysées and Aillaud’s Towers in Nanterre, known as the Pablo Picasso district.

Situated close by near the Pompidou. Great location for people watching and crepes.
