A city that takes beauty seriously

On a beautiful Paris winter day, Flame-Haired Angel and I took a walk around some of the scenic parts of the city, breathing it in as we wonder how much longer we'll be here.

When we came toward the end of our walk, we crossed into Place de La Concorde. I almost laughed aloud when I saw the image below.

It's scaffolding, but with a printed scrim draped over it so no one is offended by the eye-sore of the work-obstructed facade.

If you like interesting and/or trompe l'oeil scaffolding, don't miss the building on the corner of Avenue Georges-V and Rue Vernet, just behind the Champs-Elysees.
