Paris, not always what it seem to be, but often beautiful

A little compilation of many pics, mostly street life and building.

It's great that you showed the not so attractive areas of Paris. Cities don't have to be perfect to be amazing and interesting.

Thank you for the photos.

Des coins assez surprenants que je ne connaissais pas! Je ne savais pas que la passerelle d'Ivry était terminée, elle a l'air bien!
Sinon c'est Okabe ça?

C'est toujours un peu la même remarque...
Je vais me répéter... mais crois tu que cette photo soit révélatrice du lieu où elle a été prise? Cette barre est un cas interessant, elle est en plein VIIe arrondissement, à deux pas du bon marché...soit... mais le carrefour du boulevard Raspail et de la rue de Sèvres est un des plus beaux carrefour de la capitale. La "vérité" n'est pas forcément laide or j'ai toujours l'impression que n'importe quelle rupture, aussi vilaine soit elle, marque un temps dans ton parcours... tu t'arrêtes et appuyes sur le déclancheur... mais l'autre vérité... autour? celle du joli square, celle du carrefour grouillant, celle bourgeoise du Bon marché...
Je ne sais pas si tu me comprends... mais je trouve ça étrange...

Don't worry JP, I am not a very basket case. I also took picture of beautiful thing.
Yet I like this commie block in the 7th arrondissement. I used to do so shopping here when men clothing stores still existed, now if you aren't a woman you can't found anything.

I loved those modern buildings, most of them seem to be outside La Defense, am I right?

Great thread, but there should be some descriptions where the photo's were taken. I recognise a few places in the suburbs + La Defense, but most of them tell me nothing. And that's a pity.
