London versus Paris

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Post box

Big Ben & Eiffel Tower

Shopping window display

Rooftops

Phone booth

The underground/métro

Bakery

Windows

What a brilliant collaboration between two friends: Xanthe lives in London and Irene is from Paris. They created a photographic treasure hunt series where they both capture similar yet different sights in the two cities. I love the Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower match and how about those cool mailboxes? xo

P.S: Wednesday giveaway is coming up!

They are such a creative duo! No one can beat Paris, but London comes in close second. Lovely find!
