Parc André Citroën is a 14 hectares (35 acres) public park located on the left bank of the river Seine in the XVe arrondissement (district) of Paris. The park was built on the site of a former Citroën automobile manufacturing plant, and is named after company founder André Citroën.
Since 1999, the park has been home to a moored gas balloon. It allows visitors to rise above the Parisian skyline, and is currently operated by the Banque Populaire. The balloon is filled with 6000 cubic meters of helium. It is 32 meters high and has a diameter of 22 meters. It is moored to the ground with a hydroelectrically-activated cable. It can rise to an altitude of 150 meters and has a carrying capacity of 30 adults, or 60 children. The balloon provides a view of the Champ de Mars, the River Seine, Basilica of the Sacré Cœur and the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral.

good use of the tilt here to make it dynamic thru the diagonals you created.
I like this B&W with low contrast here.

bon jeu de courbes en N&B, avec le tilt qui ermet d'en faire une oeuvre presque abstraite.

Hello Frederic. Experimenting with the camera. That you have succeeded well with this photo. The timeless black and white is a good choice. Overall, well seen and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.

good pics come to those who wait - or who are quick enough :)
I love this one, it looks like one of those graphical ads of the '60s, where everything was about signs and symbols... there is an effectiveness in such images that makes them self-sufficient.
good one :)
