Paris Pairs

This weekend I excitedly went to Paris for the first time, I was visiting my friend from longtime who lives there now. Here are some pairs I saw in Paris.
A quick note about the middle one, the orangutan and the man. In the zoo there was a monkey house, circular in shape, with glass walls. The orangutan was up against the glass, so close. And the man appeared. He did not wear zoo uniform but maybe he did work there. He tapped on the glass gently, not like a tourist - he leaned in to the orangutan and opened his mouth wide. And wider. And the orangutan opened her mouth, and wider. They were gaping at each other, mimicking each other and I watched the smile of the orangutan right up close.
