Boot Camp in the Tuileries Garden


Perfect activity
on this Sunday morning: 
Sport, sport, sport! 

But not any sport: 
Boot Camp 
with a coach 
in the Tuileries Garden, 
right in the center 
of Paris. 
It was organised for 
a bachelorette party.
It was a nice one!
And the weather 
was incredibly 
sunny and warm 
for November.

(M)other India

(M)other India.
 
This exhibition 
at the Galerie du Jour 
Agnès B - Paris 
showed 
another India 
by displaying 
contemporary 
Indian art, 
we're not used 
to see... 
 
One key idea:
Reveal and point up 
the diversity
and its delightful richness!

Amazing pastry café in Angel,

an idea of 
what's inside: 
Fruit tarts, croissants, 
cookies, brunch...
On Piccadilly street.

London #6 | Master of photography Diane Arbus

This autumn, 
the American photographer is displayed in both London and Paris.

Diane Arbus, even though controversial at her time, is very well known for her
black-and-white 
photographs of deviant and marginal people or of people 
whose normality seems ugly or surreal. Her talent was 
to picture them 
the way they look, unpretentious.

To do:
  - Visit the artist rooms collection at the Tate Modern, London, til 06 Nov. 
  - Visit the first major retrospective in France, at the Jeu de Paume, Paris, til 05 February 2012.  
    
Self portrait, pregnant. NYC 1945.

Celebration 
of Hollywood portraiture 
from the industry's 'Golden Age', 
the period 
1920 to 1960, 
at the National 
Portrait Gallery. 
From Greta Garbo

Marilyn Monroe,
