Paris, The Temporary New Normal

The images not usually associated with Paris.
I manipulated the original images to convey the stark reality of the current situation in Paris after the terrorist attack of 13 November 2015. 


Patrolling the streets with pedal power

 
and the Champs Elysees near the Arc de Triomphe on foot,


at the Bataclan Theatre


and taking in the view from Montmartre.


Mixing with the locals

 
and watching pedestrians.
 

Guarding the Notre Dame


and the Basilique du Sacré Cœur on the Mount of Martyrs 
 

and the Louvre.
 
Paris experienced much worse disasters in its past and
the temporary new normal will again give way to the old normal.
It always does with time.
