Poo-Brains, We Salute You

Paris iPhone Photo Chronicles
~ Poo-Brains, We Salute You ~

BONUS: For Street Photography Fans!

One of the most enjoyable aspects of wandering the streets of Paris is the utter unpredictability of it all. You never, and I mean NEVER know what you're going to come across on any given jaunt, but you are almost guaranteed there'll be something, the only question being what.

Here was one of the day's surprises: an entire cavalry regiment calmly striding stately down the Quai de Montebello, the way you do, if you will.

My first thought was that they were headed to the Esplanade des Invalides to welcome some visiting dignitary, as often happens. It was only later that I realised it was almost certainly to do with the honouring of the war dead to which the new President Hollande had graciously invited the old President Sarkozy.

I bet they don't get fines if they crap in the middle of the boulevard, the hippocrites. And one horse dump must be worth about 50 pooch poops if you ask me. I've seen horses with poo pouches attached to their behinds, but I guess that would be about as elegant on these magnificent beasts as us humans walking around with incontinence bags dangling proudly from our belts.

Where is this going? Oh yes. Anyway, a great sight to behold and a worthy member of my Paris surprises series. And another one should be coming right around the corner any time now. (Skidding on huge piles of pony poo, if they´re unlucky, he mutturd...)

And why not...
