It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Paris Daily Photo & Peter’s Paris

October 30th, 2008 · 6 Comments

For all of you who dream about going to Paris one day, or dream about returning there, I know from my previous Paris blogs I have written, there are many of you that fit into these two catagories!  So for you, and for those of you yet to discover the beauty of Paris, here are two blogs that will take you there visually from the comfort of your own home!  Enjoy!

Paris Daily Photo:

Eric from Paris Daily Photo  as he likes to say, is a “friendly Parisian” and, yes they do exist!  (I can attest to that!  In all the years I’ve lived in Paris, only twice did I meet a rude Parisian, but that’s another story!)  Eric shares his Paris with viewers from around the world and as the name of his blog states, he gives you a new photo of this amazing city everyday. 

What I like about his blog is that with each photo Eric takes, he gives you insight, via his lens, as to what is happening in his life, or the life of the photograph that he has taken.  His PDP parties started with an impromptu gathering of faithful followers who manage to get together for conversation and dinner and has now extended to Eric visiting other cities as well. You can visit his site, or link from my blogroll.  It’s a wonderful way to see Paris through the eyes of a Parisian!

Peter’s Paris:

Mia, as many of you may know, is a wonderful contributor to my blog by the comments that she makes and the insight that she shares on things that I talk about.  Mia is from Göteborg, Sweden and I mention her here because Peter is also from the same city.  In case you haven’t been to Peter’s Paris, I thought I would tell you a little bit about his blog.

Peter is a Swede who has lived in Paris for 34 years and after retiring, now finds the time to enjoy it!  Peter takes wonderful photographs of this beautiful city, but not your usual touristy snapshots.  Instead, as he wanders through the streets of Paris and with each new discovery that he makes, Peter shares them with his viewers.  It truly is a feast for the eyes!

If you love Paris, then be sure to visit their sites.  You won’t be disappointed, but you may be a little sad that you’re not actually there!

Maya Muses:  Merci Harriet!

    Peter would probably be delighted to meet you! Sometimes the internet makes this a small world afterall!

    I think Eric would say the same thing with his PDP parties.

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous
    blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
