Unlikely Street Art

This week’s final image from Paris shows a bit of real “street art” though admittedly not of the usual sort.

It’s a photo partly showing the magnificent structural iron frame of the old Carreau du Temple in the third arrondissement. The market is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment and remodelling, and I was intrigued to see such lovely drawings and an attractive board outlining the proposals. And this is, in fact, the other bit of the photo.

I stood and admired it for some time. But it wasn’t the only interesting thing to look at in connection with the works. The local Mairie has erected along the length of some nearby railings a whole series of photographic items with fascinating background information and stunning visuals on the history of the market.

There’s no avoiding art exhibitions of one sort or another in Paris.
