Umm, yeah

Pretty Packaging - Jerome drinks Just in case someone asks, the answer is yes. Yes, I was the girl who walked into the grocery store to buy a bottle of water. The same girl who, while looking for a bottle of water, noticed pretty silver bottles with perky labels. The girl who couldn't resist that pretty packaging despite laughable prices. And yep, the girl who bought three of them, took them outside, sat them on the steps of a nearby building, and snapped a quick photo. You know, in honor of archiving all that prettiness. My only regrets were that I didn't take a picture of the discerning looks I got while doing it, and that the judgement being hurled my way distracted me from being able to focus my camera.

Me: At one of the nicest restaurants ever.
Them: Had pretty glass bottles on their linen lined tables.
Me: Took endless pictures of these beautiful bottles.
Them: Looked at me funny.

I can sooo relate!

Will – The pull tops were so cute, and the packaging was so simple and vibrant. I wanted to buy every one.

Well, thank you for being that girl and for taking the abuse from passers-by to create and take this great photograph! I would totally do the same thing, I am a sucker for funky/colourful packaging like on these bottles. Great post!

Dancing Branflake (I love that handle!).

It's hard to resist, isn't it? In NYC, you can take photos of everything and no one blinks. In Paris however, you are scorned, chased, yelled at, etc.

The phrase I hear most often in Paris is "pas des photos!" I'm not kidding.
