"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

High Contrast Paris

I went on a picture stroll for you guys again. Enjoy!

underneath the arches of the Passerelle des arts, view onto Ile de la Cité with the Conciergerie and Pont Neuf

Underneath Pont Notre Dame, a marvelous structure on the oldest bridge site of Paris. One of its predecessors was actually called "devil's bridge" in memory of all the boat accidents that happened here. The present bridge dates from 1919 and was directed by Jean Résal, who had also worked on the Pont Mirabeau and Pont Alexandre III.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
