Born during the French Revolution and institutionalized during the Third Republic, "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" is the well-known, widely seen national motto of France. This phrase is everywhere in l'Hexagone: On stamps, on coins, and on countless buildings across the country. It even used to be inscribed on packs of Gauloises cigarettes. I kept noticing the French motto while out on my early Sunday morning photography mission, and since no one was around to block my shot, I kept taking pictures of it. It's a beautiful motto - Liberty, Equality, Fraternity (Brotherhood) - and a fun subject to hunt for while roaming the streets of Paris.
