Weekly photo challenge: From above

Hi everyone,

I was this afternoon looking from above the 6th floor on top of the Centre Pompidou ( Museum of modern art) in Paris’ Les Halles quarter. This attracted my eye:


A multicolored group relaxing beneath this fading sidewalk painting of a woman.

Oui; art is in the streets…

    1. Hi Bij,
      What a big coincidence, n’est-ce pas? We were on the same wavelenght. 🙂 The Centre is a place for you to discover online & in books if you like modern & abstract art. I am grateful to have saw some art forms below and created my own artform from it. Cheers!

    1. Hey there Ronnie,
      Thank you, my friend. It was an overcast day to start so the city panorama is wabout average but… there was human panorama!! I guess that we were that at the right time; the whole cluster broke up aftr awhile.

      So it is not only street art it is an ephemeral art as well.

      Big hugs to ya, sweetie and see you tomorrow for your post.

    1. Hi Zhu,
      Thank you so much. I have the photographer’s love of high places to look down on people and places.
      All the themes are interesting but this one challenged me to find high points… that’s why this post was later than usual!!
      Bises 🙂

  2. WOW.
    That….is an amazing photo with those coloured dots of people and the painted woman. Zackly how long did you have to wait for people to get off of her? LOL Seriously–you’da missed that had you not been six floors up. SIX floors…yikes–musta made for a fantastic view, period. But catching this–extremely awesome!

  3. Definitely in the right place at the right time. Last night we watched Liam Neeson’s movie Taken and just loved that feeling of being in Paris, even if only visually.

    1. Hi Rowena,
      Thank you so much :).
      You and your hubby should come back to Paris one day. You would be very happy… and like a fish in water with the food! Ciao 🙂
