This is how it looked

This is how it looked out the window above the kitchen table with the spire of Notre Dame peeking over the rooftops. We set out to walk along the length of the Viaduc des Arts, unused elevated railroad tracks on Avenue Daumesnil, where we walked along the upper level linear garden called the Promenade Plantee and returned on the lower level, looking into the ateliers and shops fitted into each of the viaduc arches. Heading back towards the house we stopped at Place de la Bastille to shoot the statue, 'genius of liberty', a memorial to those who died in the street battles of July 1830 that led to the overthrow of the monarch. And the skies were glorious blue with only the occasional gray cloud.
