*** Sidewalk Weekend! *** #53


Sidewalk Rating: Now With More Daylight!

with gourmets, with smokers;
the theaters are packed
with cheerful spectators.
The arcades are swarming
with gawkers, with enthusiasts,
and pickpockets wriggle
behind the flaneurs.

-Ennery and Lemoine, Paris la nuit, via Benjamin's Arcades Project.
