This is my story from last weeks Paris trip. My first time in Paris and a wonderful experience, we had a great time. My goal for the trip was to take photos of things that not have been seen too much or to find some other perspectives of “known” sites or views. I am not sure I succeeded but I sure have a lot of memories in my photos.
We lived in an apartment in a very “noisy” part of Montmartre, just beside the Moulin Rouge. Our view from the French balcony offered a lot of people. I love to watch people in middle of their lives, on their way somewhere. I spent some time just looking down at our nearest street.
In our street (Rue Lepic), there where small shops for all kinds of things, one for fish, one for bread and so on. I bought some wonderful Pions in the flower shop.
I love roofs and rooftops, walls and windows. Here are some nearby views, also taken from our window;
I love the soft colors in grey, blue and turquoise, the red large advertisement makes a great contrast…
My mother enjoyed our view as well;
The garbage truck usually block the whole street, and sometimes causes some irritation…:)
Day two on our Paris trip we went for a trip to Tour Eiffel, something my kids wished for. There was so much people, and that is why we decided not to get up to the top… I took of course some photos, but I think I will show you my “best” perspective of that tower.
Living in Montmartre there was a lot of walking in that area, it is in some way like a small town in the countryside, some streets were empty. At the highest point in Montmartre is the church Sacré Coeur, we went there a few times and from there the view over Paris are awesome.
Finally here are some random street photos, I found Poppies, roses and a lot of pad locks…
