On the streets of Paris: this plaque d'égout at the Place des Vosges in the Marais district has attitude.
When I think that back in March we were concerned about having enough rain through the spring and summer seasons! This photo was taken on one of the few days of the past three months when the pavements weren't wet. Clear skies and more seasonal temperatures have finally arrived.
