Paris and I ~ 'The Right Side'

iPhone Photo Chronicles
~ The Right Side ~

The Right Side, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.

Always sobering, never indifferent, the memorial to the deportation remains, exists, somehow 'just is' a part of the hidden city for those who are curious enough to discover if they wish.

The lady who was working there yesterday managed to infuse her broken English instructions ( can take photograph in the monument but please, no talk and no video, for respect..) with just enough humanity.

She held out her abject script, like one of the Romanians on the train proffering their sob story, and apologised for the poor computer translation with a hint of a wink in her words.

To what extent it really matters to her if someone discretely videos down there, i don't know, but she certainly takes her restricted remit seriously, and i'm quietly pleased that my art falls on the right side of the bars this time.
