Posted in paris, pia's photos January 14th, 2009 by piablog

I took this photograph in my old paris apartment – remember the writing on the windows in the guitar studio/second bedroom? (This might jog your memory) Well this photo is looking through that glass window out onto the lovely Haussmann building opposite. I wrote “Paris” on the window and took the photo at dusk.

    You must stop.
    Every time I come to your lil slice of heaven, I want to go to Paris even more. You’re creating a sickness in me, Pia!

    I LOVE this photo. Writing on the window is so creative! I’m going to have to remember this when I go to Europe this fall.

    This photo is absolutely beautiful, as is your handwriting!! I wish I had a prettier script; if I tried to do that same trick, it would look as though a third grader who’d just learned how to write cursive and was being disobedient had scrawled on the window 🙂
