The picture provides a strange sight in Paris. I still have not deciphered the mystery. The building is an apartment complex. But, why is it fully covered in grills?
If you look closely, there are balconies where the residents have opened the grills. Who wants to sit there without a clear view of the street? But, then why do they cover it with grill in the first place?
I could see glass windows through the grill. But Paris is now very gentle compared to their turbulent past. There are no rioting public who are likely to throw stones on glass windows. So, that shouldn't be the purpose.
My sense of direction is skewed when walking through the city. Are the residents trying to filter the sunlight falling directly into their abodes? A curtain is more efficient and elegant for this need.
I still wonder about the grills.
