There are so many unexpected highlights to any trip to Paris. Last year on one of my morning walks I took the Metro to the rather remote 13th in search of Rue René Goscinny.
René Goscinny is a French icon- creator of the enduringly popular Asterix, amongst other things. I wasn't sure what Rue René Goscinny would have to offer. But was suitably delighted with how he is commemorated.
|At first glance, it looks like an ordinary street|
on a quiet Sunday morning
|But there is something special going on here|
|Bollards are everywhere in Paris, |
and in a few areas they are decorated
|Some I thought were surprisingly Anglo|
|Clearly, the Simpsons are big|
|Betty Boop seems more Parisian|
|I'm not sure who this verdant green vixen is |
|Naturally this was ferme on Sunday morning|
You can take a video walk down

I can't wait to find out wait unanticipated delights await me next time.

I love public art - these are great.
What fun!! I would enjoy seeing these.
I remember Asterix... my son used to love to read those when growing up. These are so cool! Interesting and am glad that they have a street in Paris honouring its creator.
How wonderful! The art made me smile....thanks for sharing.
Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST
I love those posts :)
Those are great!
Terrific post. You find the most interesting things to visit in Paris. Not that you need to distract yourself in Paris, but you find such interesting sights.
These are marvelous! Are they commissioned by the city, or the shopkeepers? Or are they guerrilla street art ala Banksy? It's so wonderful when ordinary objects get a fanciful face lift like that, a lovely surprise.
ahh! love it! reminds me of how some folks paint up fire hydrants here.
