Arles has many sights to offer - a roman amphitheatre, many churches and an ancient and formerly very important cemetery.
A very good way to relax in between is to take a stroll along the Rhône river.

Canal St. Martin

Another photo from the
Canal St. Martin in Paris.
The atmosphere here is completely different compare to the more renowned attractions, but I’d prefer it even to a stroll along the Seine.
A notice about homeless people camping in tents along this old canal reminded me of my last Paris visit.

Boy with tin drum at the Louvre

Filed under: — lbobke @ 10:06 am

The Louvre in the evening, the little boy sits precariously under a window.
When looking for reflections of the Louvre in the windows of the Louvre, I realized a little figure sitting precariously high under the windows of the world’s most famous museum.
Only when looking at him through my tele lens, I realized that this was art - not suicidal behaviour.
I wonder how many times a day the police are called to help?
Presumably it’s just a reference to Günter Grass’ Oskar Matzerath from the “tin drum”.

Enlarged view of the boy with his tin drum.

Fountain by Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely, Paris
Right next to the gigantic Centre Georges Pompidou, there is the small Igor Stravinsky place with a very colourful fountain.
The sculptures of the fountain are by two well-known modern artists: Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely.

Early morning in Paris

Seine at Sunrise
The Seine, shortly after sunrise. Getting up that early surely was worth it: the light was truly magical.
Again (see my evening bridge with train), I waited for a train to cross the bridge before pressing the trigger.

Sacré Coeur

Filed under: — Laurenz @ 9:12 pm


One of the landmarks of Paris, the Basilique du Sacré Coeur looks down on the city from its hill on top of the famous Montmartre quartier.
Looking at the white building that combines romanic and Byzantine styles, it is hard to believe that it was only officially opened after the first World War.
Sacré Coeur is only a very short walk away from Place du Tertre, where you can get a portrait of yourself painted by one of the many artists preying on the truckloads of tourists.
When I visited this time, Montmartre, Sacré Coeur and the Place du Tertre were quite enjoyable - winter is a good time to visit the more touristy attractions of Paris.

Canal Saint Martin, Paris
Everybody knows the Seine, but few people walk along this charming old canal right in the center of Paris.
Highly recommended!
