Rue du Cherche-Midi

Between the windows on the premier étage (first floor above the street)
 is this charming piece of architectural detail.  
The plaque says simply "au cherche-midi"

19, rue du Cherche-Midi is a few steps away 
from Poilane the reknown bakery.  
The street traces the route of an old Roman road 
and is situated in one of Paris' most sought-after residential neighborhoods 
with its 18th and 19th century homes.

19, rue du Cherche-Midi
75006, Paris

Bravo Genie, il faut toujours lever le nez en l'air ! J'adore ce petit coin de la rue du Cherche-Midi. Ah ! comme je regrette mes petits pains sportifs de chez Poilâne, je n'en trouve plus ici en Provence.

Hi Genie! Thanks for stopping by and the kind words. For the past several years, when in Paris, I've thought of you, Alexa and Virginia.

I love your eye for details. With so much to see it's easy to miss things in Paris. When I come here some of the blanks are filled in. :-)

I like the high contrast of darkness and areas warmed and set aglow by the early-evening sun reaching its rays into and upon the haut-relief.
