Photographer's Note

I would venture to say that even if you’re not superstitious, you still understand the negative connotation with the number 13. If you’ve ever noticed, there are many hotels and buildings that don’t have a 13th floor…but I could be completely off base with that, I can’t say I’ve been in every one throughout the world!?

Anyway, to make a short story long, I claimed this to be lucky because it was a happy surprise that I stumbled upon this location/address while wandering around the Marais district....and I mean that literally! I was approaching this section of the street when I tripped over a small break in the sidewalk and just about had a face to face meeting with the concrete…not that it would have made my general appearance any worse for the wear though! lol

There’s also a short, trashy story to go along with this shot. I had to remove two large garbage bins that were placed to the side of the doors, which were thankfully on wheels, because they were full and quite heavy. Needless to say, I received a few strange looks from passers by. Not the first time that’s happened, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. I was initially taken in by the door and lamps, but does anyone else notice the symmetry? :)

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the weekend everybody.
