Université de Créteil, Paris

Université de Créteil in Paris, photographed Straight Up by Cameron R Neilson

On recommendation from a French friend at my favorite go-to restaurant in NYC, Meatball Shop, I was introduced to the “Cabbage” buildings at Université de Créteil on the outskirts of Paris. The balconies on these buildings are shaped like leaves from a cabbage. The particular one with the morning light is named Pablo Picasso. The buildings look more like asparagus to me.

On the way to this location for sunrise, I rounded a corner at a quick walking pace and startled a tea cup chihuahua being taken for its morning walk. The dog ran and wrapped its leash around an adjacent street sign post. As the dog continued running the leash wound around the post 3 or 4 more times–shortening the leash each time. Eventually, the dog became airborne for another half wrap on the pole. The dog owner and I had a good laugh.
