Paris Karin and I attended a classical music concert last Thursday (2012-03-31) as part of a festival that concludes tonight. It’s sponsored by my dear friends at Intégral Records and the closing act was Marylin Frascone on the piano and Raphaël Pidoux on the cello (the page turner is cellist Pascale Jaupart).
Anaïs and I amlso made homemade donuts that are baked and not fried. It took a little doing, but here’s how they turned out…delicious!
To shamelessly self promote, I’m reposting this photo in honor of the article, “The Human Zoo”, I published over at Bonjour Paris.
This “Sirène” (“Mermaid”) is part of the exhibit “Exhibitions: The Invention of Savages”, at the Musée du Quai Branly. Items of this type were the centerpiece of curio cabinets as early as the 16th century, though this piece dates back to the 18th. It’s made of fish scales and bones, painted wood, and the teeth and claws of a Japanese marten (think sable).
I’d like to turn this site into more of a collaborative effort, if at all possible. For that, I need your help!
If you have taken a picture of Paris on your cell phone and would like to show it off to the world, why not do it here? It doesn’t have to be super artistic–there are enough photo sites of Paris as it is–just taken with a mobile phone and that’s all!
Please send a copy of your photograph to Paris.Paul.Prescott@gmail.com and I’ll let you know when it’ll be posted.
Thanks so much for your help!
