My Weekly Photo Challenge, Half and Half shows a man alone in the universe. Humble to the forces of mother nature. A man can make great things but, will always have to give in to the power of the unknown.
I like to scale things up when I’m in Paris. Just because of the fact that Paris is full of hidden treasures that are worth to take a closer look at.
I found this ”beauty” in the streets of Belleville, an area in Paris located between 4 different districts: the 20th, 19th, 11th and 10th district. Belleville was formerly an independent town separated from Paris. The name Belleville means beautiful city. For now Belleville is an non touristic area, but I think that will change in a few years. That’s because Belleville is an upcoming area with lots an lots of hidden treasures! I’ll soon tell you more about the best places in Belleville.
Sweet dreams everyone or a really good morning ♥
”I ought to be jealous of the tower. She is more famous than I am. – Gustave Eiffel († 1832-1923)”
The Eiffel Tower had to be my Weekly Photo Challenge. It’s the most famous monument of Paris and I love to photograph it. 125 years old and it still gets people excited every day. Yeah, I know it’s a big tourist meeting point but for me it’s more than that. When I’m on the third floor and I can see Paris move… I’m always impressed. Mostly impressed by the size of the city. Again and Again. But the most important thing is that the view motivates me. I can’t wait to discover more and write about it! Everyone has his own source for inspiration. For me is the Eiffel Tower a very important one.
My point of this photo. Without Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower wouldn’t have exist. So, this time I didn’t put the Eiffel Tower in the spotlight, but the creator of it. Big applause for Gustave Eiffel.
Weekly Photo Challenge – Street life. Streets are my favorite subject to photograph and to discover. The different cars, people, doors, mailboxes, houses and even the stones on the ground, I just can’t get enough of it.
In Paris it isn’t a problem to find an interesting or a photogenic street because, Paris has more than 6000 streets (that’s a huge choice!). 6000 unique streets, each with its own character, stores and styles. You can clearly see the difference between the wealthier and poorer districts. It’s so amazing that you can hike all day long and that it feels like you have visited 20 different cities ;) Why make a road trip through Europe when Paris has everything?
I bet you do have a favorite street somewhere on this beautiful planet? Come on, share it with us! By Twitter or leave a comment below!
