Viral photos showing Paris in its death throes


I've received emails from three people forwarding a series of photographs a Czech couple reputedly took during a recent visit to Paris. I doubt whether Czech people were the ones who took these photos. I certainly cannot find any citation to an original blog post or email. Indeed, astute observers will note that one of the photos has an illegible website attribution, suggesting that some or all of the photos come from sources other than a single Czech couple's photo album. (I know that I can research the images, but I'm too lazy. If you decide to do so, please let me know the result.)

I suspect that what happened is that someone got hold of an email containing observations about a trip to France's capital and then inserted representative photographs. Since the photos show scenes familiar to anyone who has been paying attention to Europe's demographic changes in the last few years, the combination of text and photographs is powerful. I'll add some videos after the photographs to provide support for the images' legitimacy in terms of showing modern Paris.
