Leg Man, Me

The Paris metro can throw up some surprising sights and this was one which grabbed my attention the other day. If I hadn't done a funky mirror effect you'd have seen these shapely appendages filling the frame from here to kingdom come and then some.

Grotty little underground boutiques intrigue me, both from the point of view of those who have (decided) to work in them, and from those who might feel the urge to actually buy something from one of them. A less glamorous Parisian shopping experience you couldn't wish to find.

Not that underground or covered consumer experiences are alien to the city; the legendry passages have been doing business for ages. But buyiing your nylons from a hole in the ground has to be the definition of last-gasp giddiness. Galerie Vivienne it ain't. Even if the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is just a few feet above your head. Irony of ironies; the injustice is almost transparent.
