From My Balcony: de Février à Juin

Throughout my entire year in Paris, my most frequented sanctuary was the endless, ever-changing view from my balcony. I watched the seasons come and go, month by month, from this lookout of mine, which often felt as if it was floating in the clouds. Gazing out across the horizon, which was smeared with clouds and glowing with fading sunlight, I felt relief, release, reprieve. It never got old.

I shared the first six months of photos from my sanctuary amongst the clouds in this post. Here is the other half:

July got lost somewhere in the bustle of life. I don’t judge this to be a bad thing, but rather a result of a summer enjoyed to the fullest. Thankfully, life often moves too fast for photos, Facebook albums and blog posts. And knowing that it will, I try to live with my spirit as my only camera and my memory as my only archive.

Smiles and all the best,

Savannah

From My Balcony: d’Août à Janvier

I am fairly certain the only reason I pay as much as I do in rent is because I have a balcony. From my personal terrace I can see all the way to Sacré-Cœur, and at night I can watch the lights dance on the facade of the Tour de Montparnasse. In the summer and fall, I spent most of my at-home time sitting outside. Breakfast, dinner, guitar-playing, reading, spying on my neighbors, all took place on my balcony.

One would think this would get boring. The city doesn’t rearrange itself and the view doesn’t change. Yet from my little terrace, I watched the world transform, summer to autumn to winter.

Here are the past six months, from my balcony:

I can’t wait to see what the next six months will bring…
