Olympic Towers

Les Olympiades, a Council Estate (social housing) development in the Southeast of Paris (13th district). This is the epicentre of the Chinese quarter of Paris. All towers are named after a City which housed the Olympic games hence its name.

Portraits from the Chinese New Year Pageant

Selected portraits from the Chinese New Year Pageant. Not all of the participants are Chinese nor Indochinese. There are indeed young men and women from all origins in that pageant. I must admit I like the one above best amongst the portraits I took on that day. February 2015.

Blue Wallace

There is this new trend in Paris whereby Wallace fountains are painted all kinds of colours (above, Poterne des Peupliers in a yet to be inaugurated new housing development - use Streetview to get back in time). Sir Richard must be turning in his grave. Below is a very apt red version in Chinatown.

Crutch (B&W)

At last I can walk about town and I can take pictures too. Yet, on that beautiful Spring day (temperatures around 25 celcius in Paris today), my crutch was never very far away from me. March 9, 2014.
