The Tree in the Courtyard – Le Marais – Paris

The Tree in the Courtyard

An inner courtyard in Le Marais, Paris, on a Walkabout in August 2016.

Like a lot of European cities, Paris is full of small jewels for the eye. All the observer has to do is be alert. This was on a walkabout in Le Marais. I just couldn’t ignore the setting. There were shops on the ground level – quiet, as it had been raining, which explains my unobstructed view. This courtyard was part of a network and you could move from one small “place” to another before getting back to the main streets all around.
