Place de l'Europe

Place de l'Europe is situated in the 8th district of Paris, and where most of the streets are named after big european cities. Mostly; yes ! because one of the streets intrigued me.

I walked around in the area; from Stockholm to London.. (Amsterdam, Londres, Liège, Dublin, Athènes, Rome, Turin, Milan, Moscou, Budapest, Stockholm, Berne,Vienne,Saint Petersbourg, Madrid, Bucarest..).. and rue de Constantinople (Istambul now, capital of turkey) ! A street name that doesn't fit (yet?) in place de l'Europe ?

The negotiations are open, let's see what happens in 2015 and if Turkey will enter the European Union.
Anyway, rue de Constantinople will stay in Europe, in Paris !

One day in type

What would my day be without type ? I documented every encounter with a typographic element in the course of one day.

Water and Wine

It's funny to see that the museum of wine is on the street of "les eaux" meaning "water" ! Was it made on purpose to hint at another story where water was turned into wine ?

26, 68, 70 ?

When I took that picture on a street in the 2nd district, i was just thinking how is that possible !!!
It's only when I looked at it on my screen that i noticed the x sign on the 68 and the 70 !
Pretty confusing but funny !

Don't buy this !

My flatmate and I were so angry when we got this cereal box :they seriously only fill it up with this much cereals !
So i decided to photograph it and make this awareness poster.
Next step is printing it and sticking it on the cereal boxes in that supermarket !

RATP at home

A few months ago, the RATP ( transit in Paris) launched a new awarness campaign ( made out of these colourful stickers on all the subway lines) to alert the passengers to be quick , not to block doors.. etc..
These are two examples of these stickers, used in context (on the subway) and used out of context
[ 1) my doorstep 2) my friend's bathroom ]
