la vie en rose





Life through rose-colored glass indeed. And what's wrong with that?! Stumbled across this gorgeous find of vintage European film archives. Dazzling, I've just lost hours peeking into history abroad, catching the crackles, romantic yet abrupt. And the quirky movements and manners of yesteryear. Images circa 1896 by Nadar the pioneering photographer that captured the stage in stills. This magical little journey began here. And my passion for Paris can be found in this clip here.
Sigh... Je t'aime.
