After seven years in Africa, it is my first Christmas back home. If I spent most of November and December back in Tanzania to visit my better half, I have taken sometime to wander in Paris with a camera since I am back. I have some plans to visit some exhibitions and museums in the coming weeks and blog about those but in the meantime I have stopped by the windows of the Parisian Department stores.
By tradition, the big department stores of Paris make special window display. If in the past, the displays were for children with toys, now it is mainly the big fashion brands advertising for Christmas.
Last Saturday, I sopped by the windows of the Printemps Department Store on Boulevard Haussman and took a few photos. Although the design was beautiful and everything was perfectly done, I thought that some of the magic of the window display from my childhood has been lost.
