Certain images evoke larger concepts or thoughts; here are some images that for some of us are those of parisien life.
Paris was, long before Charlie Hebdo on high alert. Apart from the immediate aftermath, things seems to be as they were. The only noticeable change was the closing of the tower at the Sacre Coeur.
We have been in the African, Muslim, Jewish and Hindu neighborhoods of Paris. We clearly stood out. There was no other particular tension.
The greatest stir was the fact that I had a camera and the drug dealers were not pleased about that. That however is true everywhere all the time.
