Down And Out In Paris

Down And Out In Paris, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.
A strangely surreal graveyard for defunct street furniture and lamps has popped up in the soon to be destroyed Les Halles recreational area opposite the Saint Eustache church.

Forlorn lanterns vie with broken benches and aimless signposts for lawn space close to where six million Parisian souls were buried before being dug up again and transferred to what is now known as the Catacombes at Denfert Rochereau.

It must all be part of the scheme for a brand new Les Halles, the current one deemed under-optimised and, to be frank, insalubrious in parts. I'll keep you posted.
