"She walks, she walks no doubt on tiptoes, in ordinary noises, in the habit of being, in the lack of emotion of this huge human machine that is the big city.

She looks at those who walk, bodies moving in this scenery of asphalt, stone, iron and glass. Maybe the woman look is more acute there, more attentive, because something grabs attention: 'she sees' fragile bodies showing haste, imminent happiness, laughter, pleasure, or betraying tiredness, weariness, boredom, day-after-tomorrow death, poverty also. She saw them, she takes them in her gaze as you gather shopping goods at the market – and there is plenty of markets in Paris."
