I carry my little point-and-shoot camera wherever I go and as a result, I have a lot of stray photos of items that spoke to me at the moment but have no stories attached. These bands of decoration are from the bottom of a turret on rue Hautefeuille in the Latin Quarter, a building that has no particular historical or artistic significance. Still, think of the time some stone mason spent in a century long ago to add these beautiful details. Old and new street signs are juxtaposed below.
