A day in Montmartre by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

On a particularly sunny day earlier this weekend, I got the best welcome back to Paris ever in the form of a lovely stroll around Montmartre together with my favourite LaurenKatie (who’s also an amazing photographer here in Paris) and Lauren’s adorable little dog Daisy. Montmartre is a neighbourhood which I’m not too familiar with just yet so thankfully Lauren was there to show us around. Our goal for the day? To eat several Nutella crêpes, make it up the many hills and for Lauren to have a little photo session together with Katie. I tagged along to snap a few shots of these lovely ones (and yes, for the crêpes and the great company as well of course) in action.

I could do exactly this all day long, every day. Stroll, eat, stroll some more, laugh, talk, stop for coffee, take some photos, laugh even more. I always have such a great time with these girls that it’s hard to notice that a whole day goes by in like a minute or so.

    Underbara bilder (som alltid).

    Förra svängen jag och min fästmö var i Paris (2008 tror jag) så noterade vi att det var HELT turisttomt på ena sidan kullen (förutom vi då som vimsade oss av på “fel” hållplats) medan turisterna satt tätt, tätt packade på den andra sidan. Rätt lustigt. Medan alla satt och trängdes på en stor opersonlig restaurang så hade vi ätit vår middag i lugn och ro på en liten, mysig och personlig restaurang inte mer än 200 meter därifrån.

      Tack snälla Björn! Precis, det är så himla mysigt om man vet var man ska gå.

  • Zara Collings

    It’s such a lovely area to have a nice walk in with friends – I stayed with my friend last Summer in Paris and we spent a very happy day doing the same thing!

    Oh, what a beautiful post about an amazing day! I’ll never forget this day for as long as I live, it was pretty close to perfect. Thank you for the photos dear, I just wish I was just as good a photographer to return the favour… I’ll just have to make you something out of paper… :D xx

    • Lou Binns

      These pictures give me serious hair envy Miss Lou Bate – you just radiate happiness : ) Love the pic of Daisy on the yellow Vespa xx

      • http://www.foliesdubonheur.com/ Lauren Lou

        I’ll tell you what, love, Daisy was on there just one nano second, I was so afraid of getting yelled at by the unseen Vespa owner! A testament to Carin’s talent, she was able to get that shot so quick!! xx

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

          Haha thanks lovely ;)

  • Solis

    Helt underbara bilder!!!! Om jag vill spara ner en bild för privat bruk får man göra det? Skulle gärna vilja ha en eller några av bilderna uppsatta på väggen här hemma…=) MVH Solis

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

      Tack snälla :) Upplösningen är inte tillräckligt bra för att printa ut direkt från bloggen är jag rädd… Det är inte officiellt än men jag ska starta en liten shop där man kan köpa fotona i framtiden. Hoppas att du hittar något du tycker om där!

      • Solis

        Tack för ditt svar! Så kul och spännande, det ser jag fram emot….=) /Solis

    Montmartre is my absolute favorite neighborhood in Paris, without a doubt. All those hills and winding streets, be still my heart! The artistic soul of the neighborhood is still so present, and the views can’t be beat! xo

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

      Yes, now I can see why for sure ;)

  • http://sometimesgracefully.com/ Grace Beekman

  • http://with-flourish.blogspot.com/ Kaylie

    I LOVE how these photographs just radiate a warm crispness to them, such a beautiful environment. I wish I could visit the neighbourhood! I don’t have much to complain about really, I get to spend this weekend at Haeundae Beach in South Korea. ;) Ups and downs.

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

      Thank you so much Kaylie :)

  • MilanoTime

    Oh Carin, your photos always make me want to pick up my camera and shoot like there´s no tomorrow, hahaha
    Unfortunately I don´t live in a charming city as Paris, but it´s ok :D :D
    This seems like the perfect day to spend your day!! Now I´m craving nutella crepes *-*
    May I ask you, if there´s no problem, which lens did you use and if you shot wide open, ´cause these are so sharp!! Love them so much <33 I wanna live inside your photos ;)

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

      Ahw, that’s a good thing :) So happy they make you feel that way! Of course. I mostly use my 50mm 1.4 lens but I also have these: http://parisinfourmonths.com/2013/03/17/my-camera/ Thank you so much!

    Oh, your photos. My coworker just told me she was going to Paris in April, and I squealed like it was me going. Luckily I can look at your photos and pretend I am!

    beautifully captured! i doubt that there is one part of paris that is not charming in its own way. hopefully, some day in my life i get to consume one of those crepes. i make them at home every now and then, but i’m just so curious of how they taste in paris.

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

      Thanks :) Ohh, they’re so delicious here in Paris!

  • Catherine

    I always wanted to ask what program do you use to make this kind of soft pink color of photos? Photoshop?

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

      Do you mean the photos on the blog? When editing the photos on my blog I always use Photoshop.

      • Catherine

        And on instagram?

    You had me at Nutella…

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

      Haha, right?

  • http://www.threadandbones.com/ Jessica

    My old stomping grounds! What gorgeous shots; you really found the best angles in Montmartre to block out all the tourism and restore it to the charming little artists colony it used to be. Looks like a fun and beautiful day. Wish I was still there!

    It is the best neighborhood in Paris . . .!!

      I know you think so ;)

  • Noelle

    Beautiful! I was in Paris last week and had the pleasure of meeting Katie in person after discovering one another on Instagram. While in Paris, my friend and I ended up in Montmarte three times we loved it so much. As a photographer, it is so dreamy and inspiring. Love your images ! //Noelle // http://www.noelleann.com

      Thank you so much Noelle :) Happy you found Katie on Instagram too!

    For about 95% of these photos, I know exactly where you were standing! This past January my boyfriend and I rented a little apartment off of Avenue Junot for two+ weeks. Montmartre is my favorite neighborhood in all of Paris. I know it sometimes has the reputation of a “hasbeen” but I just can’t relate to that sentiment. Up on the hill it is quietly tucked away from the rest of the hustle and bustle of the city, feeling like it’s own little world. Beautiful photos of what I consider to be my “home”!

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

      Happy you like the photos and that they could remind you of your trip :) I loved these places too!

  • chocolatecookiesandcandies

    After seeing these photos, I wish I didn’t dismiss Montmartre when we were hunting for an apartment to rent. Thanks for the recommendation, I’ve just started following your friend, Katie on Instagram. Her feed is fabulous and tons of food on it too :P

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

      I usually don’t walk around these areas too much but thanks to the lovely Lauren that will change from now on. But it’s a really good idea to walk around here with someone who knows what they’re doing ;)

  • http://sevenlivesandmore.blogspot.fr/ Mélodie NICOLLE

    These are such beautiful photos, Montmartre is one of the most beautiful part of the city and your photos are truly gorgeous and totality gives this neighborhood justice!

    These make me long for Paris! I can’t believe I’ll be there in two weeks (if only for a weekend, but hey).

    Beautiful photos, by the way!

    Did you use the 35mm here or the 50mm because these are really sharp!

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

      Thank you :) I’ve used the 50mm lens for these photos.
