Candide's Notebooks/February 18, 2006
Bash the French all you want: they remain the luckiest people on earth for having Paris and its cobblestones underfoot, and architecture’s Olympus all around. We’re lucky to have the appropriately named Hugo, a 37-year-old who may or may not be Parisian, take us on a walk through a city he loves to angle and surprise the way Woody Allen loves to do likewise to (and in) Manhattan. For Hugo, no gargoyle is too mighty to flirt with, no light too furtive to catch at its most intimate. Paris may be a gray city. Through Hugo’s eyes it is eternally sunny, even at night.
On the other side of this wall, at the top of the Trocadéro, there's a 15m drop !
Rue de l'hotel de ville
A gargoyle above Notre Dame
Quai de Valmy
Les bouquinistes: No glow added, this is the original light. And the 3 guys have glasses !!!
He shoots New York, too: West 4th Street in winter
