This was the calm before the storm. Paris had been ground to a standstill by striking workers.
Stepping out of the beauty of the Musee d’Orsay, I got very different impressions at the site of “tooled up” Gendarmerie waiting for a riot. I took some shots of the peaceful demonstrators and the armed police with my iphone and posted them online.
They all mysteriously vanished but fortunately I had my Nikon with me.
