Sometimes we head out with no goal in mind, or decide to take a long way around to where we're going, just to enjoy walking the streets of Paris. Recently we walked down to the river and along the quai on a warm evening on our way to meet a friend for a drink. We had a lot of time in hand and took the stairs down to the riverside quai that runs under the Pont Neuf.
We rarely see it from this angle, and it gave us an opportunity to look closely at the boats moored there and the faces of the "monsters" supporting the bridge edge. Each of them is different and none look like anyone you'd want to meet in a dark alley.
As time passed the sky began to darken and suddenly I was seeing everything in silhouette. Lovely.
