Visual Caffeine on Streets of Paris

October 18, 2009 by


No matter how many times I stroll the streets of Paris, I am always amazed by the quantity of visual inspiration I receive. From the beautiful way in which ordinary shopkeepers arrange their vitrines, or store windows, to the graffiti and posters that temporarily paper the walls of ancient buildings. But the florists seem to have a special gift–not just for the variety and abundance of plants and flowers they offer, but for the extraordinary way they display them on view either through the windows or on the sidewalks in front. Here are a few of my recent favorites:

Fruits, flowers, and grasses in the Marais.

Autumn and Spring share the stage together.

How could I pack this in my suitcase?

These mushrooms are arranged like a museum exhibit–yes they are for sale.

Just for fun: Maybe he winked one too many times at passers-by?
