Great wines and oysters in the darkest part of Paris. We were recommended to go to Wepler by some Parisian gallerist that I know. She assured me it was the best place for fish. Queues at the door upon our arrival suggested a gem, and that couldn't have been farther from the truth.
The oysters were good and so was the champagne. But the main course of John Dory arrived late and the ceremonious removal of the silver serving hood revealed the rather bland sight of John Dory accompanied by a stodgy pasta with a gravy-like sauce. To me, it looked like something a Soviet kindergarden would serve. The fish (obviously cooked from frozen) smelled faintly of seafood "on the turn". Wepler correctly removed these dishes from the final bill.
Saving grace: the wines were excellent (especially Mersault ) and we were well treated at the table. Good value too. We are still not sure what happened – was the chef in a bad mood? After we left the place, we realized that we were in the Moulin Rouge area. But it looked nothing like the famous movie starring Nicole Kidman. Apparently, it was a district of porn shops and peep shows. More on that in my next locations article.:)

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
In the early part of the 19th century, lantern shows were the equivalent of movies. Photographs were hand-printed or transferred on glass plates, which were then projected on to a wall or cloth screen.
