"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

The cupola at the top-ola

I love love love my new camera! I can finally take non-blurry pictures without having to wait and stand still like an idiot, just to get something fuzzy and off focus as life-long souvenir! So no more ruined party shots, and no more auto focus problems! And no more flash explosion that hits you in the face 6 times like the worst paparazzi eruption on the catwalk.

Having made my statement, now enjoy pictures of the early 1900s neo-byzantinesque (or art nouveau) stained glass cupola of the Galleries Lafayette department store, only a few 'Blocks West' (get the hint...) of my place!

The inside of the cupola is filled with... Chanel, what else

Galleries Lafayette
Head in the clouds, feet on the ground

and a nice view on the rear end of the opera house and the Phallus Tower

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
