Weekly Photo Challenge: Rare

Manuscript (1)Les Boquinistes 01 (1)

Fifteenth century hand-illuminated page. I bought it from a Bouquinistes in Paris. I’ve never really translated it, but I do recognize the start of the Lord’s Prayer on the bottom two lines. The shame is that they were selling single pages from the original book.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadowed

As I was listening to the news from Paris today, they mentioned that, for safety’s sake, they had long ago replaced their metal trash receptacles with plastic bag holders.

This is a photo taken in Paris several years ago. At the time, I was just taking a photo of textures, patterns, and shadows. Today, however, it seems especially appropriate.
