A Parisian miscellany, including The Bataclan Theater and

I’ve got so many great pictures from my trip to Paris in January of 2020, and some of them don’t fit neat categories.  So, here, at random, are some of them:

These plaques are all around Paris, marking key places of WWII.  I hope I am not the only person who stops to notice them.

The doorways, oh, the beautiful doorways of Paris…

But, I’ve never seen a boar as the key motif! Would love to know the genesis of this!

I love seeing the architects and sculptors signatures inscribed in the stone on the facades of beautiful buildings.

I’d never hear of the Bataclan until the hideous terrorist attack a few years back.  It is quite a theater.

Winter is a great time to view the architecture.
