A gap in the project

Hello. Sorry, I won't finish the year as planned. I had a family situation and had no wish or time to take pictures. At least I finished my 365 project officially on Dec 5th. I think I'm going to continue, not with daily pictures probably, it was tough enough. But I'll find another thing, maybe a project52 I don't know... stay tuned. Happy Xmas and new year.

Day 373: The Coronas



Private gig by the Coronas (a VERY famous irish band here) at the office for lunch, pretty cool !

**

Concert privé des Coronas (groupe irlandais TRES connu ici) au bureau à midi, pas mal !

Day 372: My Xmas tree



Not spending Xmas in Dublin, so my Xmas decoration more or less ends there.

Day 371: Stewing



Caramelize 1 onion and a clove or garlic in "a tiny drizzle of olive oil" as Jamie Oliver would say (ie, a lot of it).
Add carrots, leeks, 3 tiny potatoes, a tomato and a handful of green beans and cook for 5-7 min.
Add water and a cube of chicken stock + salt and pepper.
At the end, add tomato passata and mix. Delicious and perfect for a shitty weather sunday at home in cosy woolen gorgeousness.

Day 370: 16h38



Totally dark at 4.38pm. 

Day 369: La féerie dansante des sirènes



The office Xmas party was awesome, and it gave me the impression to be in 1955 part of Back to the future.

Day 368: Retro Xmas



I want a retro-looking Xmas this year, a very british one.

Day 3-6-5: 365 !



I did it ! 365 pictures taken every single day of the year ! I feel so proud. I remember thinking I'd last 30 or 40 days when I started.
You might realize yesterday was Day 363. I didn't cheat, but I realized I messed up with my counting on day 20 (what a shame) ... So it was impossible to correct every post since then. But it's day 365 for real today.

**

J'y suis arrivée ! 365 photos prises chaque jour de l'année ! Je suis super fière. Je me souviens que je pensais durer 30 ou 40 jours quand j'ai commencé.
Vous aurez peut-être remarqué qu'hier était le jour 363. Je n'ai pas triché, mais je me suis rendue compte ce soir que j'ai cafouillé dans mes comptes dès le jour 20 (la honte). Donc c'était impossible de corriger tous mes posts. Mais aujourd'hui, c'est bel et bien le jour 365.

Day 363: Glasgow




Day 362: It's truuuue, look how they shine for youuuu



Coldplay live in Glasgow. Opening show of the Mylo Xyloto tour. It was PURE AWESOMENESS, especially my forever favorites Yellow and Fix You and my new addiction for Charlie Brown with the glowbands :)
Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisn Guyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy lol

Coldplay en live à Glasgow pour le 1er show de la tournée Mylo Xyloto. C'était une vraie tuerie, notamment mes chansons préférées de tous les temps Yellow et Fix You, mais aussi ma nouvelle addiction: Charlie Brown (rohhh, et les bracelets lumineux)

Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisn Guyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy lol

Day 361: 35%



Pasquier has finally landed on Irish shores. But I shockingly discovered there's 35% of your daily saturated fat allowance in one single pain au chocolat. Holy cow!

**

Pasquier est enfin arrivé en Irlande. Mais j'ai découvert avec horreur qu'il y a 35% de notre dose quotidienne de graisses saturées par petit pain. OMG!

Day 360: Galeries Lafayette

December 1st


At least it looks like Xmas. But also way too much like France: grumpy people, runni-everywhere people, rude people, and trains to airport stuck for hours because of a funny guy running on tracks in Aubervilliers.

**

Au moins, ça me met dans l'ambiance de Noël. Mais aussi beaucoup trop dans l'ambiance française : des gens qui râlent, des gens qui courent partout, des gens malpolis, et des RER coincés pendant des heures car un p'tit malin court sur les voies à Aubervilliers.

Day 359: From the skies

Wednesday, November 30th


Client meetings tomorrow in Paris. In the skies again.

**

RDV clients demain à Paris. A nouveau dans les airs

Day 357: About "Kinder surprise" bets



When we make bets with my friends, about any stupid thing we can, we bet kinder eggs. And everybody wins, because can you buy kinder eggs for your friends without buying one for yourself ? I don't think so

Day 356: Santa Claus is coming to town



What a poetic sunday: blue sky + Santa blocking the biggest street of Dublin + watching the gorgeous movie "My neighbor Totoro" + listening to that song that reminded me of that beautiful ad 5 years ago (ahhhh San Fran See below


10 days to go officially to finish off my 365 project (Wow!!). But I'll continue til New Year's. December is promising nice photo opportunities

**


Quel dimanche poétique: ciel bleu + le Père Noël qui a bloqué la plus grande rue de Dublin + regarder le sublime "Mon voisin Totoro" + réécouter cette chanson qui me rappelle cette jolie pub d'il y a 5 ans (ahhhh San Francisco )


Officiellement, plus que 10 jours pour finir mon projet 365 (wahou!!). Mais je vais continuer jusqu'au nouvel an car décembre me réserve de belles opportunités photographiques

Day 328: Xmas lights are already on



Such a weird day: super low dark clouds making an apocalyptic feel, Xmas lights ready, most people in winter clothes but a weird and unusual "summer-ish" 16°

**

Une journée bien bizarre: des nuages noirs super bas qui donnent une ambiance d'apocalypse, les lumières de Noël installées, la plupart des gens en vêtements d'hiver malgré des températures bizarrement "estivales" (16°).
