Thanks to the lovely Mills at Heron + Hibou, I came across these aerial photos of Paris taken on Bastille Day. If you don’t think I wept hysterically, well, then, you don’t know me at all. The shot of the Île Saint-Louis makes my heart leap; it’s the tiniest island in the middle of the Seine when you’re standing on it, and yet it looks so jam packed and incredible from the sky. Oh Paris, mon cœur.

I’m excited to announce the winner of the Shabby Apple Giveaway is….

  • Wow! Some of those photos don’t even look real. Like paintings, almost. Such pretties.

  • these shots are incredible! i wish i could be there to experience bastille day with parisians, with you… some day!

  • The air display is so cool.

  • Wow, these photos are gorgeous. The only way these photos could be made better is if they were taken by you. (Makes me smile that Heron + Hibou provided you with some great inspiration. ;) Happy weekend, Erin!

  • these are breathtaking! that first one almost doesn’t look real it’s so perfect. and i wish i were on that little island right now.

  • Oh Paris.. I just love anything Paris.

  • That picture of the Ile is amazing, you’re right it’s so cute and quiet there and it looks like a mini Manhattan and looks like it’d be really dark and crammed.

    I really hope that within my lifetime we have our own Bastille Day. Especially with this stupid nonsense about royal babies. Can you believe it’s so bad that the liberal papers (i.e. the guardian) have a republican button so you have all the so called Royal baby news hidden.
