The Date (see post) and this painting come from the same day of wandering around the Sacré Coeur. I couldn’t help but think that all these cars were like a pack of sleeping animals nestled in the urban jungle.

Walking up the street to the Sacré Coeur, on a cold winter day, a happy couple. The man is taking snap shots of his date. The scenery is like something out of a fairy tale.

Not very far from the Moulin de La Galette, I came across this large space dominated by vertical lines.
It felt like walking on an island.
Cars can’t park, pedestrians cross it without lingering.

The Sacré Coeur is built at the top of a hill and one must climb numerous stairs in order to reach it. The crowd mainly concentrates in front of the building. The back is a little deserted by tourists. One can walk back down to the city peacefully, or just stand there and look at the layers of streets and buildings unfolding at ones foot.

It’s Sunday morning. After a light brunch “chez Marcel”, I’m taking a stroll around Montmartre.
