Miscellaneous Paris Photos

Art along a long set of steps going up the hill to Place du Tertre, shown below.

Not many artists here in the winter. When spring and summer get here, this place is seething with artists.

An interesting mosaic in the Metro.

One of the cafes that surround Place du Tertre. In warmer weather there would be an accordion player in this photo.

Eiffel Tower from the edge of Place du Tertre.

Same shot without zoom. Santa Fe needs a landmark like this. Oh wait, I forgot... there's already a concrete obelisk on the Plaza. Never mind.

Hazy view from Place du Tertre.

The funicular is handy if you're too tired to climb stairs. We used it last night on the way home from Musée d'Orsay. 

Exterior of the Hope Cafe (the one near our apartment, not the one in Hope, Arksansas).

Exterior of La Maison Rose, where we had a mid-afternoon snack a couple of days ago.

La Maison Rose. 

Place du Tertre at night. One lonely artist braves the sub-freezing weather.
