Color

You have to look pretty hard to find color in the typical Parisian building but whenever I do, I feel like I've won the lottery.   Mosaics, ceramics, brickwork:  I love them all.  These details are hard to photograph from street level so my apologies for the wonky angles.  So just consider these pictures documentation, not works of art.  If you're heading out for your own treasure hunt, stick to the arrondissements with numbers in the double digits where 19th century architects and designers let their imaginations run wild.

Jolie coleur! For all the beauty of Paris' uniform color scheme, it is, indeed, wonderful to see splashes of color and creativity.

Great photos! I'm looking out my 13th floor apartment window and loving all the grey roofs and off-white walls. They never cease to soothe me as they change with the time of day and the weather. Is this a result of building codes in Paris or what?
