Paris - c1987 - The Rooftops of Paris from the Sacre Coeur

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilique_du_Sacr%C3%A9-C%C5%93ur,_...

I have visited Paris 3 times for 6 days in total in my life and am yet to see a cloud in the sky. This is truly amazing because Paris is the wettest Capital City in Europe. As you can see this was taken on one of those fine days from the top of the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre. I loved my Konica C35 because it was so good for portraits but given the right light it wasn't too bad at panoramas either.

Yes I have been busy recently scanning our photographic archive but was sadly disappointed that so few were worth turning into pixels. The great joy of digital photography is that you can easily delete the rubbish and have as many goes as necessary until you get one you like. No I will never buy film again.

Very pleased and proud however that my picture was used to illustrate the piece. It is a beautiful city and a beautiful world and such a great shame that so many people just can't see it. My thoughts go to the families of the victims of yet another senseless attack.
