Montmartre is a hill in the north of Paris, France. It is 130 metres high and gives its name to the surrounding district, in the 18th arrondissement, a part of the Right Bank. Montmartre is primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Cœur on its summit and as a nightclub district. The other, older, church on the hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded. Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Salvador Dalí, Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. Montmartre is also the setting for several hit films. This site is served by metro line 2 stations of Anvers, Pigalle and Blanche and the line 12 stations of Pigalle, Abbesses, Lamarck - Caulaincourt and Jules Joffrin.

the picture which has French spirit in almost every detail :-) I especially like the little bistro/cafe on the right with couple of chairs outside and stylish windows.
Good POV and very right angle to take this photo from. Veyr nicely balanced and proportioned composition. Nice and natural colors and very good sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your Sunday

Un petit coin de Montmartre bien typique, même si il a été envahi parles savoyards. Bon cadrage de ces deux lieux de restauration.

I can never get enough of this city, I love it! :) As many times as I've been fortunate to visit and photograph this same stretch of Montmartre, it never occurred to me to obtain this point of view. I've always been focused on the traditional scene of including the dome of Sacre Coeur in the background. Sliding a short distance to the right has given this corner an entirely fresh appeal. I can honestly say I've never seen this composition, and I applaud the originality! A timeless classic given a new allure. Bravo! Bonne journee.
