Fancy Fence at Sacré-Cœur


One day in Paris we went up to Montmartre. After we had climbed the stairs to the white basilica of Sacré-Cœur and visited it, we directed our steps to the Place du Tertre. While walking along Sacré-Cœur I noticed this beautiful fence.


I liked the spiral tops - it looked quite fancy and very beautiful. The fence was pretty high and I took some "blind" shots - holding the camera high above my head and just clicking away. Not very professional, but there was no other way. Yes, sometimes it sucks not being 6ft. or taller!


After I had seen the first blind shot on my camera display I decided to take pictures "through" the fence as if you were looking through it like in a tunnel. I tried several times, but there wasn't even one photo that was really good. However, they're still interesting.


It gives you an idea what this fence looked like on the "inside". The rust is beautiful as well.


Of course this fence is a good fence and deserves to be linked to Theresa's blog.

Paris, of course, is the perfect place to capture those curly, wrought iron, fences, gates and doors! Love your perspective!

That sure is a "good" fence! I think it's always fun to experiment with crazy viewpoints etc. I actually really love your photos of the fence, all of them, including through the fence!

My mom loved France, and she took me there on a long trip when I turned 18. We went to Monmartre. I'm so happy that we did that trip together because she died very soon thereafter. It's a wonderful memory.

Those are great for blind shots! Maybe you need to carry a foot stool. LOL! I loved La Sacre couer, and of course the Montmarte area is pure heaven
