Streets of Paris - 10th arr.

By parob
Rue du Chateau d'Eau is one of those multi-ethnic streets that undergo a metamorphosis depending on the time of day. As witnessed in the series, Africa is very present. This photograph focusses on this person's seeming comfort and total indiference to the surroundings, as passersby cross this major boulevard to access the metro station on the other side. Evidently, there is a story, perhaps signified by the yellow worker's helmet, yet the entire scene troubles because of the powerful presence of this individual.

This capture shows the example of homeless people in many parts of the world, and as shown here in your Paris Street shot Parob. Sorry to say that there are many displaced people, and the EU has not helped things by this open door policy. The UK are having a more increased amount of migrants coming without skills, and come for the wrong reasons! Many homeless migrants now camping our in London Parks. Thank you for your comments.
