Creative Carrots in Paris

Just when you think you have seen it all.....
You pass by someone begging for change who is probably yet another "down on their luck" artist.
I have a feeling this person may have been a sculptor. Paris is not an easy place to come to if you don't have the means, connections or backing.

So he sat down on the street and carved these amazing birds. The flowers were carved from beets. I had no problem giving him a Euro or two. Then I politely asked if I could take a picture. I only snapped the one. It was a little out of focus but I didn't wish to embarrass him. These birds were truly beautiful.
