View From the Top of Montmartre

Stomping Ground of Artists in 1920s Paris

This view, from the top of the hill, looking down on Paris is mesmerizing. I can see why artists, painters, illustrators, poets, writers and musicians from all walks of life converged in Montmartre in the 20s.

It’s away from the hustle of the city, isolated by the long hike up the hills, and provides breathtaking landscape for constant inspiration.

This one image from my inaguaral trip to Paris holds a special place in my photo collection. I’ve even made this image into an iPhone case and a set of Parisian cards.  It captures a look and feel that I had always expected to find in Paris. I wasn’t disappointed.
