Paris Food Trip

Wow. That's about all I can say after getting back from Paris this past week. I spent 4 days over a long weekend running around with my wife while she researched an article for a lifestyle magazine on Parisian pastries and hotel accommodations. That basically meant that we were at 5-6 pastry shops per day and stayed at three different hotels over those four days. It was completely and utterly exhausting, but a truly unforgettable experience. My takeaway was mostly food pictures for reference for my wife, but I was able to spot a good deal of street art as well, which is always fun for my continually expanding street art photo album.
Here's the photo set of selects I pulled from my trip. Click on the image below. Hope you enjoy. I have to say that I had the best lunch of my life (at the Four Seasons at the George V Hotel), two of my favorite dinners of all time (Le Petit Verdot, and Chez Jean), had amazing Cous Cous at our favorite Moroccan place (404) and saw Janet Jackson at one of my hotels. Definitely an eventful trip.

Patricia Piccinini at Haunch of Venison

One of my favorite contemporary artists, Patricia Piccinini is exhibiting currently at Haunch of Venison in Manhattan. The exhibit ends October 30, so make sure you check it out. These are merely low res iphone photos, so you really want to check this exhibit out in person to grasp the full majesty of Ms. Piccinini's work. It's truly phenomenal and Haunch of Venison has really good taste in artists that they represent, so it's a great place to check out on a recurring basis.
