Paris and I ~ 'Backs To The Wall'

~ Backs To The Wall ~

Backs To The Wall, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.

Clinging to the walls of Paris, or trying to break through them?

This bitter-sweet paradox is at the very heart of so many people's relationship with the city, and is mirrored, incidentally but not coincidentally in the name of my first creative website dedicated to the capital: 'Paris Set Me Free'.

Can you hear the Communards crying out, as they were lined up and shot down here, against this very wall, the bullet holes bearing bitter witness?

Or has it become merely another curiosity to be slotted into yet another cute book on the greater curio-city known as Paris?

The walls are still talking around these parts, in any case...
