    Best photos so far! Love the paintings! Those pleated skirts – you have to have the perfect body! Sing – drink – eat – my kind of place!

    Loved these images Linda, Montmartre holds a special place in our memories of the 2018 trip. Thanks so much for all your efforts to find that “special piece” of artwork for me.

    Your days at Montmartre are always good. The art show next week sounds like it could be good. We saw a movie this week that showed some huge golden looking doors that I’m sure you’ve shown, Are there any that instantly come to mind?

      Yes, Le Grand Palais. It was days ago when I posted it. A web site called it the favorite Parisian door.

    Love a Citroen! Saw a newer one in St Paul the other day…..cannot remember when I last saw one in US!
    Re the painting…. I am no artist, but can’t they just “paint out” the tourists? Hahaha

      Would seem logical to me to paint out the tourists, but there’s great resistance to that view.

    What a pleasant weekend! The problem with getting a different view of Le Sacre Coeur is that there’s only one view of it! But it is a beautiful view! I love your photos of the pieces of sculpture stuck on the sides and corners of buildings! Just another little thing that makes Paris special. I hope they will be finished wrapping the arc de Triomphe before you leave. I know you want to see the final product in person. Thanks keeping track of things for us.
    P.S. has anyone tried to pick up that lady that’s always standing on a street corner?

      They are supposed to complete the wrapping of the Arc by September 16 or 17 but they have a long way to go! As to the lady on the corner, she has had no offers but would entertain one from some rich, good-looking Parisian.

    I’ll join the crowd in adding my accolades to Montmartre! Always a must when visiting Paris. The view, streets, buildings, restaurants, art work, museums, and the people make this a very special spot.
