I've always thought horizontal stripes were very classy and sophisticated. I guess it's because I keep picturing Audrey Hepburn and oh well French people in general. Vertical stripes on the other hand have always had for me that young and playful allure, mostly because I associate them with candy canes and barber poles you would see in old movies. It's no coincidence that I wanted to take these pictures in front of a carousel in the children's park. Unfortunately I've never seen this carousel working, it's always covered up and it's such a shame. My boyfriend said maybe they don't have anyone to run it and suggested I should maybe get a job as a carousel operator. I rode all the carousels I found in Paris so maybe that can count as experience.
