A Dash through Saint-Germain-des-Prés

These photos were taken while fast-walking through the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area, completely late for a dinner appointment.

As far as I could see, it was very creatively inspiring area, with clusters of art galleries and bars/restaurants/cafes.

If I were able to take a proper shot of this gallery, it would have made for a brilliant photo.

Firmin Didot was a late 18th century printer, engraver, and type founder who revolutionized the printing process.

These photos were taken at about 8:30pm, which makes me absolutely envious of European summers.

Café de Flore, where all the famous philosophers once congregated. Also an important location for Jean-Marc Vallée's similarly-named 2011 film.

This was a school of some sort. Perhaps the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts?
