Sometimes I notice--and then focus on--the details of a locale, often at the expense of staying on the bigger picture. Since I can't have both simultaneously, I decided that it's fine to just follow my eye and record what interests me. Recently, during a two day stopover in Paris, I wandered around the world's most beautiful city. In an attempt to distance myself from the throngs of tourists at Notre Dame, I crossed onto Ile St-Louis and realized that I hadn't left them behind after all. Nonetheless, I walked along the narrow streets where many of the buildings have massive wooden doors fixed with an interesting array of attractive handles and ring knockers.
