Paris in transit

“Paris…is a world meant for the walker alone,
for only the pace of strolling can take in all the rich (if muted) detail…”
~Edmund White~

I can picture a casual visitor stifling a yawn “Gasp, another gallery of photos of Paris…”
Actually few other towns in the world have been photographed - in all possible and impossible ways - more than the capital city of France with all its stereotypes and its precious charms, its monuments and its symbols.

I go often to Paris, but I rarely spend there more than a couple of days, for me Paris is a never a final destination, but a temporary halting place, a stage on my way to other places.
This handful of photos is the report of my last passage.
Just arrived... It won't rain... Strolling over rue Saint-Louis-en-l'Île Dinner at Brasserie de l'Isle Saint Louis.
No tourist, but containers… With a last crimson and orange wave … From bridge to bridge… À place de l’Hôtel de Ville il n’y avait personne…
The gentle voice of fountains... La Gare de Lyon is nearly asleep… Walking back home... Wherever I lay my hat...
They call it La Ville Lumière... The fresh air of a sunny morning... I don’t like Metro in Paris. Low profile fountain...
At least one photo showing a monument…Saint-Jacques Tower A spritz somewhere by the Centre Pompidou… I have a real passion for street market… Oh, poor lobsters!
Flower markets in Paris have something peculiar... Lunch « Chez Julien » The delightful restaurant which was once a bakery.... Walking away through another flower market...
I would have never imagined to become  a wedding photographer… The street bride.... Suggestions du jour... And then the bride got hungry…
La Seine keeps on flowing quietly… No, no, no, it won’t rain! ( Hôtel de Sens) Gothic silhouettes… The Opéra Bastille...and good-bye!
