Doorways, pipes and bananas

They’re all equally inspiring, in the right circumstances.

Now that the weather is finally bearable, and the days longer, one of my favorite things to do is walk around new neighborhoods in the evening. The air is warm, my nerves are calm, and there is no hurry.

Last week, I strolled Rue du Bac, where I was inspired by a number of different things.

The grand entrances to the grand apartment buildings. So Parisian. So lucky, the people living inside.

The art gallery vitrines. Most in the neighborhood are antique-y, but some of them are modern and surprising.

And I’m always delighted by how shopkeepers arrange and display their goods. But I’ve never seen bananas hung on a tree like this.
