Postcards from Paris: Public Notices

Something less thought of, but perfectly Parisian, if you ask me. I have been noticing these public markings all about town. Some portrayed with words: French, English, some words uncomprehending, some markings of people, animals, some of simple lines or intricate doodling. Located really in the most enhancing of places; sides of buildings, long blank walls with a seemingly unending horizontal canvas, metro tunnels, and my favorite, on trucks. I really like the element it adds to the classic sophistication of typical Paris. I can recall more than one occasion where I have been strolling about, in a state of, "walking on clouds" and then I turn the corner, or look another direction to find myself entranced with an unexpected punch of bright colors.
Just some examples from one day of strolling.





Bisous,
Reba

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box . ....................................................
