Weekend Reading

Weekend reading by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

Some weekend reading, surfing the web and things alike are perfect for a weekend when it’s too cold to go outside. And it’s March! Come on Paris. This is not amusing. But at least it gives you a reason to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot tea.

•   I’m a hopeless romantic at heart so when I found Jonas’ website and his absolutely amazing (!) photos (he’s a fantastic wedding photographer) I immediately fell in love. I love the way he manages to capture moments that almost makes you shed a tear even though you’re not there and only looking at the photos on the computer.
•   For more thoughts on this phenonomen that street style has become during the last couple of years take a look at this video from Style.com.
•   Or read this post on the New York Times‘ blog about the people who dress to become “famous” in the fashion world (yes, people actually dress up and just walk around outside the fashion shows to be captured by photographers) through street style. This subject is quite interesting to me and everybody seems to have their own opinion.
•   If you think I’m a girl who likes her sweets you should check out the blog Sugared & Spiced. Here you’ll get amazing tips and information on Paris’ many pâtisseries. Of course there’s a few restaurants here and there as well but I keep coming back for the incredible pastry posts — bien sûr.
•   I’m planning on purchasing my very first film camera very soon, and for this reason the blog I Still Shoot Film is a great inspiration right now.
•   I think Vicki and I must have the same taste in jewellery because look at these absolutely stunning necklaces she just posted about. I want!
•   These photographs literally took my breath away, the colours, the location, the dress, the light! Of course it’s lovely Nicole from the blog Gary Pepper Vintage and her super talented boyfriend/photographer I’m talking about.

    Love the links! I Still Shoot Film is a gorgeous blog, just followed it. I have a feeling it’s going to send me to the store to buy some film for my camera soon. Happy weekend! :)

    The photos on Gary Pepper Vintage are incredible right? Every single post belongs in a magazine editorial.

    • http://www.parisinfourmonths.com/ Paris in Four Months

      Yes, absolutely amazing. They could fit into any gorgeous magazine :)

    I loved the NYT piece, I was in NY for Fashion Week last year and some of the outfits people wear outside the venues just to get photographed are incredible!

    • http://www.parisinfourmonths.com/ Paris in Four Months

      Me too :) Yes, it’s really really crazy.

    Looking forward to seeing your film photos! If you’re still looking for a camera, I use the 1V (so I can use it with all of my other Canon lenses – it’s fantastic!) and the Mamiya 645 for my wedding work. Both are great cameras!

    • http://www.parisinfourmonths.com/ Paris in Four Months

      Me too :) Yes, I do actually. But I think I want to find something smaller. To bring with me when I don’t have the energy to lug around my Canon. But otherwise I would certainly consider a 1V! I don’t know much about the Mamiya but I’m sure it’s a great camera as well. But perhaps I need to start with something less pricy to see if I even like shooting with film. Crossing my fingers that I’ll find something :)

      • http://mapandmenu.com/ Meredith Perdue

        Smaller is definitely smart! I’ve thought about the Canon AE-1 for that very reason. Regardless of what you end up choosing, I’m sure the images will be lovely!
