Exodus

vendredi, octobre 3rd, 2008

On the way from Saint-Ouen to Place de Clichy, you will probably cross over this old abandoned railway tracks. While you won’t see any steamy locomotives, you might find some people wandering through this quiet trail, especially on a sunny Sunday when a neighborhood fair takes place. The setting  together with the clothing and long disorganized queue of people made me think of an exodus to some hidden world in the Paris of the end of the 19th century.
