"Through a Window" by Thea Neufeldt Armstrong

December 7, 2018

When I was in Paris, I sometimes felt like I was an outsider looking in. I speak the language very little, and found I encountered barriers quite often. As the days went on though, I became more comfortable as a guest within these barriers, a temporary migrant like many of the people around me, belonging in the very nature of being a visitor. My fresh eyes took in the city so much more this way, when I began to embrace the beauty of being an onlooker. At the end of it, I'm a tourist - I embraced seeing the city through camera lens, through window. I'm happy and grateful to look through!

Here are some photos of Parisians and visitors alike, through barriers and windows, one with their surroundings.
