The Canal

This past weekend I went out to lunch with a friend at one of our favorite areas of Paris: the Canal St. Martin. It was oddly warm (our winter coats finally felt like too much), the sun was out, and every hip, stylish person in Paris was taking a Saturday stroll in this part of town. For some of the best people watching in Paris, grab a table (if you're lucky) outside Chez Prune and enjoy their spectacular brunch on a weekend afternoon while you watch the modern day Parisian Dandy stroll past you.

I was particularly drawn to the graffiti and street art around the canal this weekend. This area is a playground for artists and fashionistas, and during our few hours spent meandering the canal, we came across multiple fashion photo shoots occurring right on the canal. This part of town provides an interesting backdrop for the artsy crowd... here you can see why:

Photos are my own.
