I met a man once my darling, who told me you cannot be wonderful, if you do not learn how to wonder. And do you know when this starts to happen? When looking at the sky becomes the norm and when you stay awake during the night, wanting to be alone with the moon. When whatever those around you say goes in one ear, and then quickly comes out the other. When the time of the mind becomes more important than the time on the clock. When a minute holds a lifetime and counting the waves of the sea becomes a past time.

There are no set rules on how to live your life, there never were. All you have to do is learn how to wonder. Only then can you keep pushing, keep working and keep dreaming.

These images were shot on a grey September day in Paris a few weeks ago, while wandering the halls of the beautiful Opera Garnier.
