This artistic grating is on the Ministry of Culture building on Rue St-Honore.
Here's a nice skyward view of the building.
Soon we were passing down the Rue de l'Amiral de Coligny, from which we could see the top of the district town hall, done in Gothic style, and next to it St-Germain l'Auxerrois.
More buildings. So French. I had to take photos. In this case, it was hard to adjust the color. Pretend we're looking at film from the 1950s.
The top of the Samaritaine Department Store, a Parisian classic.
I'm not used to seeing garden centers spilling onto city sidewalks, but where else do they have to go? It's nice having the greenery and sometimes birds on the sidewalk. I remember passing this on foot.
You can see rooftops reflected in the bus window as we pass the Victory monument on the Place du Chatelet, site of an ancient prison.
I liked this lovely architecture as we approach the river. I think this is the building across the street from the Theatre de la Ville. We may be on the narrow Rue Adolphe Adam.
