“Parc des Buttes-Chaumont”

Paris, France. June 2018 (15 photos)

This is Part 6 of my France 2018 photo series, and also Part 14 of my Europe 2018 photo series.

Now that I’ve posted from every country I visited in Europe during my 7 weeks there, most recently Germany, I thought I’d revisit those countries in no particular order.

Let’s start with some photos I took whilst wandering around Paris in the Spring. These were all taken in the general area east of Le Marais. Le Marais was featured in a previous post of this series.

“Palais des Glaces”

“Cimetière du Père Lachaise”

I might put a separate post together later for Père Lachaise.

“Germaine Tillion”

Germaine Tillion (1907-2008) was a French ethnologist, best known for her work in Algeria in the 1950s on behalf of the French government. A member of the French resistance during WW2, she spent time in the Ravensbrück concentration camp.

“Canal Saint-Martin”

“Street Art by Vinie”

“Maisons colorées de la rue Crémieux”

“Vingt et un”

“Somewhere in Faubourg Saint-Antoine”

“Somewhere else in Faubourg Saint-Antoine”

“The shape of water”

That’s a mermaid on the left and a fish with legs on the right.

“Villa de l’Ermitage”

“La Fontaine d’Henri IV”

“Parc de Belleville”

“Butte Bergeyre”

Offering beautiful views across a vineyard to Montmartre, I was there for about 20 minutes admiring the view and eating some pastries I’d brought along. Two women came walking by. I didn’t see another person during my time there at all. I guess it still is possible to find local secrets in a big city.

This is Part 6 of my France 2018 photo series.
This is Part 14 of my Europe 2018 photo series, including Czechia (The Czech Republic), The Netherlands, France, Italy, Austria, Greece and Germany.

Paris in the Spring (5)

  1. What struck me most was the greenness and the colour. The amazing street art, especially the huge girl with bubble hair she looked so 3D as though she was popping out of the wall. I’m loving this series.

    • Thank you. Yes, vivid green is kind of strange to an Australian’s eye, isn’t it? Paris is known for its street art. A saw a few examples. The larger ones really stand out.

  2. A beautiful, quiet place without dealing crowd! Lovely captures of the doors, street art,…and the “shape of water” is really cool.
    Thank you for sharing with us, Dragon. 🙂

  3. These are lovely scenes and captures of a Paris so very different to the usual tourist places. Please do a post about Père Lachaise – it was on my list for my last visit, but the weather intervened and I never got there.

    • More than happy to post about Père Lachaise, Jude. It seems to be of interest to several. Fortunately I had 2 weeks in Paris, so I had the time to allow for rain. It’s so easy to get lost in that cemetery, and I did. 🙂
      It was good to get away from the tourist crowds and experience Paris more authentically.

    • Lots of surprises in Paris. It’s worthwhile just wandering around. Street art is everywhere.
      Ahh, no food posts here although I may slip a food photo in occasionally. I posted temporary videos of every bakery I went to on IG so my foodie friends could be satisfied. The Pierre Herme macarons were a big a hit with them. LOL 🙂
