i've been tagged by cabrizette, friend and fabulous blogger from marseille - go and take a look at her blog! - to post the tenth picture from my first album. i had no idea what i would find, eh voilà! a photo i took nearly two years ago, showing the wallpaper in my favourite café. can you make out the pattern (the photo is very dark, i hate using flash...)? it's little birds arranged into geometric formations, really rather unusual and pretty. the wallpaper is eggshell white and three-dimensional, the birds are embossed. the white stripe you see is indirect lighting they have fitted behind their leather benches. i could spend hours there (i actually do, come to think of it).

since i took this photo, the interior has changed a tad. it's comfortably worn in and slightly battered in places, but i like it just the same. plus, they know i like my espresso macchiato when i come round in the afternoon or a glass of sekt (sparkling wine) in the evening. shall i tell you where to find it?

ok then. it's here.

i'll pass the tag on to to marion at l'inventaire de l'esthétique (if you like to play along, that is!).
