Rear Window by Elodie Daguin in Paris, France

I come from a very quiet place, and I like these calm landscapes, driving on a empty road, being far from everything, but strangely, I feel good living in a crowed place (for now). The picture I took is the view from my window. I like the feeling of being one little person part of something, of a bigthing. I like to look at my window and see all these people living, kind of meta-life. It makes me thinking a lot about the movie “Rear Window” from Alfred Hitchcock, that I really appreciate.

Can you sum up Paris?  I’ve lived in Paris for 5 years, this is not my native country, I come from countryside, Burgoundy more exactly, but I like to be a city dweller, especially in the capital city. Paris is truly a great city, historic and modern in the same time. It’s like there are several cities in the same place, all different. But I only know a little bit of this city.
