perhaps pierre? monique?

sometimes i get really amusing search engine terms, eg: “models + babes + photography” or “black and white pussy” (….) but the BEST one i’ve had so far is, “perhaps pierre? monique?”

you’ll only get it if you’ve watched that meg ryan + kevin kline movie, french kiss. and even then, you’d probably only enjoy it if you’ve seen it as often as i have. it’s one of those inside jokes with my friends that cracks us up, and no one else gets.

kate has just arrived in paris after her fiance ran off with some french babe, and she’s sitting in the lobby of his 5 star hotel waiting for him to appear, when bob the slimey euro con-man approaches her.

You are American, no?

For the moment.

Well, forgive me for intruding, but I saw you sitting here looking a little sad. “Why should such a beautiful woman look so sad?” I ask myself.

Have you got an hour?

As a matter of fact… always. Let me help you to forget your sadness. And remember that you are in Paris, City of love.

Can I ask you something?

Of course.

Can you urinate with someone standing right behind you?

I think I could manage it… Are you going to be the someone?

Me? No! That’s not what I meant.

So… you would like that I arrange for someone else to stand next to me? It could be arranged. Perhaps Pierre? Monique?

You have the face of an angel. But I’m delighted to find the mind is a little devil….

i love that some searched for that! FYI – the search term originally referred to this post.

Paris 48°50N 2°23E

in each city ami asks 50 of its inhabitants to hand-draw a map to a place of their choosing, a place that is significant or important to them personally, for any reason. she then uses the maps to navigate to each location and take a photograph to represent each location. the ° books portray a side of each city as interpreted by those who live and work in it every day. its not a “guide” to the new café or club, but rather, a unique way of discovering different parts of the city.

jane birkin

she’s one of those swinging sixties, between london & paris, don’t really know what she did / does (acting? singing? modelling?), gets naked a lot (but in that sixties way) vintage babes - with a handbag named after her. herewith follows some photos, just because she’s cool. some are slightly nsfw (as she enjoys the nude, respect).

paris

i first went to paris in 2005 … i haven’t looked at these photos basically since then (probably because they’re on my computer & not on actual film in an album!) it might sound cliché, but i fell in love with paris right there & then – and have been lucky enough to return twice since. more photos at my flickr.
