Paris - 82 Boulevard de Clichy - August 2011.
The glory days of Moulin Rouge are gone.
Nowadays the show at the Moulin Rouge is outdated and seems a little out of place, the whole neighborhood is full of dirty places, porn shops, peep shows and prostitutes as calling like a certain Thai Patpong.

The day when I've started to post views from Paris you've posted this "trademark" of Montmartre !
Nice the red windmill and the entrance of this most known corner of ebjoy !
TFS and best regards

Faded glory, I may conclude from your note.
Yet it still provides a brilliant picture.
The bright red colours and the blue sky as background are wonderful ingredients.
Best regards, Paul

Excellent Moulin Rouge house close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions.
Wish you a very nice week ahead.

Bonjour, cher ami Ovidiu,
Le Moulin Rouge fait partie intégrante de Paris quant à ses divertissements.
Très bonne présentation avec une jolie lumière.

An interesting place, and from your note it seems that is something that was of a particular time, and that time has passed. Despite that, this is probably still the most iconic windmill in the world, there cannot be many more that are so instantly recognizable!
An interesting post. And its strange, as it reminds me of the time I visited a club in Amsterdam called the Moulin Rouge. It too was surround by less elegant establishments.
Thanks as always

I believe this neighbourhood of Paris have lost nowadays all its glamour and its charmness because of the new kind of shops and activities there.
But your photo is a nice glance on an old icon of this place, the Moulin Rouge, under a good play of light and shades, and under an efficient low-angle shot.

another interesting photo from your archive and from Paris. Good presentation of windmill of Moulin Rogue. Fine vertical format. Well done photo.
Have a nice day.

your composition is well balanced and lovely but it's a bit of a pity that the sign of the famous club is cropped (maybe there were reasons, though, that imposed this framing). The red windmill at the top of the frame is very attractive, the careful use of perspectives has rendered a very elegant composition. I like very much the lighting variations and how they affect the limited but very pleasant colour palette. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Très bon cadrage du Moulin Rouge dans ce format vertical.Le contraste est fort avec le ciel mais les personnages au second plan sont bien rendus.
