Artery of the Sacred Heart

En français: Voici une image de la Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Paris. Elle se trouve sur le butte le plus grand en ville, le butte Montmartre. Le sommet du butte est le point plus haut à Paris.

 

En anglais: Here is an image of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, which is located on the city’s tallest hill, Montmartre. The top of Montmartre is the highest point in Paris.

 

This is among the very first images I captured perhaps two hours after arriving in Paris from London. This is an example of my perspective of how each road, intersection, square, and building in the City of Lights provided a fascinating photo opportunity. I believe I was strolling down Rue La Fayette, admiring the architecture and urban planning of Paris. However, I stopped in my tracks upon sight of this scene with Sacré-Coeur gracing the background of this very narrow street. I gazed in awe of how striking the setting was as other people (who must have been residents) kept walking as it was a sight they saw everyday.
