A trip to Boulevard HaussmannSunday afternoon I decided to go “downtown”, by train. got off the train at “AUBER” stationand followed the sign: “Boulevard Haussmann – Grands Magasins”. Came out at the Opera…My camera (which I have not used so often because I’m still afraid of it and, stubborn as I am, don’t read the manual! ) in my hand, I strolled in front of the big windows of Galeries Lafayettes and Printemps department stores.
Not many window shoppers! By now the sun was gone. Grey clouds announcing rain. Brrr.
Two “SDF” (which means “sans domicile fixe” which means “homeless”) were sitting on the sidewalk, though not near to each other. Territories. One had two puppies and the other one long white beard. They camped just in front of the many luxury window dressings of the PRINTEMPS.
I walked this sidewalk up and down, and then back up again, and then I headed over to Rue Tranchet and “Madeleine”…… I have taken so many photos that I could keep you here for hours, but I’ll save some for the next post!
