The morning after…

morning after alexina graham by troyt coburn for marie claire australia october 2012The morning after the dream that was the eve at the Palais I spent the day in a Parisian apartment overlooking the Eiffel Tower. I thought about the days to come, and about the days gone by; about the moving stillness of the village and immeasurable time.

Stepping out on to the balcony, I watched the pedestrians walking the Parisian streets. I thought of the thousand and one lives each of them live; of the immeasurable time they have spent being other people, doing other things, sailing other seas and seeing the world the way only they can see it.

I could almost see their daydreams roaming in their shadows.
