Paris in 100 Benches (incomplete)

Because life has a way of so easily undoing all your carefully laid plans and undermining even something as inconsequential as a project to photograph benches around a city of love, this is something that will always remain unfinished. One of many things that will remain unfinished. Like all of this, it was something good while it lasted.
