KNIFE AND FORK AT SPOON

WHERE Paris

WHEN 19 October

I was lucky enough to enjoy this Delicious shoulder of lamb at Paris’ popular Spoon Restaurant run by multi-Michelin star chef, Alain Ducasse. It’s located right below the 19th Century Stock Exchange, Palais Brongniart.

 

 

METRO MOLLY

WHERE Paris

WHEN 19 October

Talented South African living in Paris, Molly Steven, framed between platforms in the metro. Not often you get to take a pic in any metro that doesn’t have a thousand other people in it.

 

SHOOTING HOOPS WITH BRYAN

WHERE Bois de Vincennes, Paris

WHEN 20 October

Playing a game of wheelchair basketball with Springbok rugby legend Bryan Habana. It was part of a session to bring light to accessibility through sport at the Laureus Sport For Good Foundation Global Summit.

 

PEOPLE WATCHING AT SAINT-JACQUES

WHERE Place Saint-Jacques

WHEN 18 October

Autumnal moods at the art deco-styled Saint-Jacques Metropolitain underground station. It was oddly intriguing watching people enter through the exit!

 

THE BONEYARD

WHERE Paris

WHEN 16 October

Exploring the chilling ossuary of the underground Catacombs of Paris. The bones of over 6 millon people are artfully placed and here in an effort to eliminate the country’s overflowing cemeteries.

 

FEELING ON TOP OF THE WORLD

WHERE Bois de Vincennes, Paris

WHEN 20 October

What a privilege to be a part of the Laureus Sport For Good Global Summit 2018. It was a phenomenal week working with people all doing their best to bring about change in their communities through sport.

 

 

BRIDE TO BE

WHERE Notre Dame, Paris

WHEN 16 October

Snuck in a shot of this beautiful bride outside a cafe next to the famous Notre Dame Cathedral. Her and her groom were doing this cool photo shoot on the streets.

 

 

PARISIENNE LIGHTS

WHERE River Seine, Paris

WHEN 17 October

I was having dinner on a boat travelling down the River Seine (as one does!), it was sunset, and there in the distance was the Eiffel Tower, already glittering with its lights switched on.

 

 

PRETTY IN PINK

WHERE Paarl, Western Cape

WHEN 3 November

Dressed in a bespoke pink suit for the Cintron Pink Polo in aid of breast cancer awareness and hosted at Val de Vie Club in Paarl.
