Travel Photo Contest – Jim Dobie
This photo was taken in Paris during the summer of 2006. We had stopped for lunch and while my wife was planning the afternoon’s activities I noticed this rather casual collection of building materials serving duty as the weather protection system atop this clunker of a building. It’s a roofing contractors nightmare and no less of one for the people living beneath I would imagine. No doubt there are many hours spent emptying the buckets when it rains. Or maybe no one worries to much about it, opting instead to just have another glass of wine as the puddles deepen – Parisians can be like that and I find it rather charming.
