midnight in *paris*

3 November 2011

I don’t think I’ve ever written the movie release date for my local cinema in my diary before. Having visited Paris for the first time in June, I was so excited to see Midnight in Paris last weekend. Such beautiful imagery in the opening shots of Paris. My husband and I agreed that Owen Wilson was actually really great and was believable and charming. Adored the ending!

Here is my perspective of “midnight in Paris”. Ok, so they’re taken at 10.48pm, 10.24pm and 11.37pm, but the magic is still there. Our hotel was right on the River Seine about 200m from the Notre Dame. Oh I was ridiculously happy when we checked into our room. We embraced the noises of Paris through our window, the view of people walking across the bridges and the light that shone up on the buildings as the tour boats passed.

    We just watched that movie too! Oh it was so amazing wasn’t it. I want to go back to Paris already! I’m not up to editing my Paris photos yet but I keep wistfully looking through them all :)
    Jealous of the location of your hotel, perfect!

    Ahh it’s such a wonderful city and seeing it in film like that only adds to the magic. Your photographs are wonderful I never really took any night time ones, I’m not so good at them. Oh and I loved the end of the film too.

    Oh how wonderful, it definitely looks magnificent at night. I was unsure if that movie sounded good or not, But I may have to go see it now you have given it a good review.

    P.S. Thankyou for all your kind comments on my blog recently!

    Ah, Paris. You have really captured it here.

    I thought Owen Wilson was great in the film too, he’s makes a perfect Woody Allen protagonist.

    Love, love, love these images! These are simply marvelous! My favorite is the one of your room, looking out on the twilight rooftops. The movie is charming and the final sequences so satisfying.

    I’m back in the States now and overwhelmingly behind but I am so pleased you stopped by the Chile post. Of course, you are having spring now, too!

    Happy weekend! xo – g

    Beautiful! I love ‘tourist’ shots of a city (that seemingly never sleeps) with little to no people in the shots.

    My friend went to Europe and when she was in Rome she got up ridiculously early to get photos of the Trevi Fountain etc with no one in the photos. They’re amazing!
