Some scaffolds on the Trocadero steps. Love locks seem to be popular – souvenir hawkers have them at the ready.
This public school building, housing several programs, has been under renovation for years and years, with crews working nights and weekends (you can actually make out 1 or 2 workers on upper floors on the right side of this picture). I once asked a passing worker what was taking so long and he told me that the initial contractor had done the job wrong and so now they were re-doing it. I asked how much longer it would take and he thought with good luck they could be done in another couple of years.
