Modern Meets Medieval

Modern Meets Medieval, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.
Or 'Modern Medieval Marais' if you prefer, because that's where this
extraordinary passage lies, in the old Marais district.

One of my photo tour clients yesterday told me that the curved
cobblestone gutters are the last original ones where people in the
capital would throw away their personal waste products - lovely!

Now the Swiss Cultural centre shares this atmospheric alley with some
wonderful sticking-out bits of building (that's the technical term)
with some decidedly unmedieval but colourful graffiti. Eye candy.
