Since I started blogging, I’ve somehow perfected the art of the ideal Instagram. There’s got to be lots of natural light, beautiful colours, and a gorgeous background. As you can imagine, Paris is pretty much Instagram heaven. I rarely walk down a street without seeing something that makes me stop for a moment just to appreciate how beautiful it is.
However, it’s not necessarily the top tourist sights that make the best background photos. There’s often far too many crowds around places like the Eiffel Tower or The Louvre, and it’s hard to get a snap without someone else’s selfie stick interrupting the shot. If you’re a blogger or photographer on the hunt for a gorgeous background setting, then I’ve got you covered…
First up, Rue Cremieux. This beautiful little street is about 10 minutes walk away from Bastille metro station. It’s really quiet and honestly feels like you’ve stumbled into a little oasis of calm in the middle of Paris. The gorgeous colourful houses are immediately reminiscent of the Notting Hill area in London, and on a nice day, the blue sky provides the perfect backdrop. I recommend grabbing your camera and heading down here for a couple of ‘outfit of the day’ shots before this place becomes too popular and everyone’s heard of it!
Hope you guys enjoyed this quick post. If you do happen to venture down to Rue Cremieux, make sure to tweet or send me your Insta pic!
Check back in on Wednesday for a brand new beauty post 🙂
