A View J'adore!


As we made our way down from Montmartre that afternoon, we gasped at this spectacular view. The dome of  les Invalides sparkles in the distance.  I love the rooftops and chimney pots!

I love the area of montmarte and how you can see over all of Paris. Fantastic shot V! One of my favourites.

I'd hike back up there with you any day! :-)

The view is an exquisite slice of Paris from the detail of the near-view of window-boxes to the distant Invalides... stunning, V.

Isn't it amazing that such a huge city can be so walkable when you are there on the ground!

Stunning! I love this view! Wow it's so Paris!

That's a great shot. There are some really great views from Montmartre. Sadly, for me, I can't trek those hills anymore. Well, what I can do is take the métro or a bus to the top and walk down.

Wow—this one's a beauty! And your eye kind of stops at the dome of Invalides, so you don't really notice the newer buildings beyond. It's a classic, V.

I had never really explored Montmartre (can you believe it??) until last September. And now, of course, can't wait to be back in that spot...

I love the chimney pots too!

Oh, I want to live in that grey shack, the one just below the chimney pots.

Oh I love it when my dear friends stop by and chat about my photo. I think we all agree that the walk down from Montmartre is just the most wonderful view of Paris. It is often a struggle up for me, but this day it was a delight to see this wonderful sight as we walked DOWN! :) Thank you all for joining me.
