I came across this photo of Montmartre Paris from 1952 and just loved so much about it. Aside from the obvious (it’s in France, there are painted shutters on the buildings, an old man is painting…) I quite love the outfits the young women are wearing, their plaid a-line skirts and little sweater tops.
Wouldn’t it be lovely to just traipse around this beautiful city with the streets dappled in sun. Ahh, to summer in France or anywhere pastoral really! That’s what this week’s vintage photos are all about. Images of an idyllic summer. Lots of plush green earth, scenes of farmland, lakes glimmering with dusk approaching…
“Hills and dales and of summer hills
green, green grass, on the vine
frolic through wildflowers
laughter fills the open sky
everlasting until autumn comes”
I’ll be your summer girl
If you’ll be my summer boy
Pluck the petals.
He loves me. He loves me not.
