I went to Paris about a week ago in order to fly home. I had an evening layover in the most romantic city in the world. My mission was to find the old bookstore Shakespeare and Company. I had the help of a man, who was kind enough to point out some landmarks as he sent me in the correct direction to the store. Did you know that if a bridge has an "N" on it, it was built during the reign of Napoleon III? Although it wasn't the famous Napoleon I, that's still pretty cool, right? I'm getting off track here. I finally located the store and immediately fell in love. The weathered books, the old stacks, the wooden ladders, the old typewriters.... The ambiance itself stirred a hunger to write.
Inspired by the vibrant colours of some of the photos I took in Croatia, I decided to take a look at some of the previous pictures I took during a couple of outings in Toronto. I selected three based on their similar colour schemes. I assure you that they have not been tampered with; they are truly that colourful.
