Fontenay-sous-Bois, June 2012.
* * *
… I’ve been buried under a mountain of literature which I have to review as a part of preparing my research proposal. It feels very strange to be doing something legal and being so very excited about it. Perhaps I was meant to be an academic after all.
… I’ve been running around le Bois de Vincennes with the young gentlemenn pictured above. As I imagined, playing monsters and Star Wars has been a very refreshing change from all the reading and thinking.
… I’ve been spending a lot of time drooling over eBay and flickr, dreaming about analogue photography. I can’t decide if I want a Pentax Spotmatic or a Canon AE-1, or, in case of the former, which lense to go for (I’m thinking 28 or 35 mm could be a nice change from the 50 mm I normally use), but I’m notoriously bad at making decisions and this may turn into a very lenghty deliberation.
… I’ve completely been neglecting this blog, which is lazy and rude and needs to stop right away. Fortunately there will be a lot of beautiful people visiting Paris over the next few weeks (oh, love summer!), so there should be a lot of pictures and adventures to share. I’m hoping for sunset picnics in Versailles, boozy walks along le Canal Saint Martin, complete with large bags of escargots from Du Pain et des Idées, and lenghty Lebanese dinners, but we’ll see. These things usually turn out even better than planned.
