Smile, you're on camera
I know what you're going to say: "this photo really sucks compared to the one of yesterday..." True, it's less "sooo Paris", but I found the little camera graffiti - just above the typical Paris street sign! - pretty cool. And pretty timely too... As the new plan to introduce large scale video surveillance in Paris has just been released a few days ago. About 1200 cameras are going to be installed throughout the city this year (about 20 to 90 per arrondissement depending on their size - see the map here). As always, this project is highly controversial; some people argue that it is a breach in their privacy.
