Back from Paris
Visited A&A in Paris - my supervisors from back when I did my master's thesis in Canberra. Had an excellent time catching up, except when I got all moody because I still miss my ex.
Apart from a bit of self pity it was really cool though. In Paris it's the month of the Photo right now, so we went and visited a number of small galleries in the quartier Marais. I didn't know that you can ask for (and apparently also get) 4000 Euro for a photo!
Also I had much fun with the twin daughters of A&A: Here one of them gets fed by yours truly in the Tuileries. She looks a bit disgruntled - probably because I was too busy looking into the camera to aim properly.
Next is some statues of the Louvre who were catching the evening sun - probably the reason Louis XIV put them there - magnificent!
Oh, and even more lastly, here is an amazing video A&A made of their twins - they were born prematurely, weighing only about 1kg. This video (set to Radiohead) does an amazing job of communicating some of the things you would go through as a parent - it's not your typical boring "proud-parents-present-their-spawn" thing, and moreover it is only four and a half minutes long!
