we must carry it with us or we find it not

Le Consulat .........

Le Consulat  in the heart of Montmartre is always crowded 
I stood here for ages waiting for a few tourists
to disperse so that I could take a  reasonable pic of the facade
but it never happened!! - in the end I decided that maybe this is the way it is
a hub of activity - tourists wanting to soak up the atmosphere of the old
Montmartre just like me and so I took the photo
I hope you like it

How sweet it is!

Hi Dianne,

Love the photographs and even in January when we were there and the weather was cold, there were tourists everywhere.

Happy week

Yes sometimes the people make the shot. I think you captured the atmosphere here so well. I've never seen this one. I"ll look for it! :)

You captured the moment-it seems that when in France do as the french do, enjoy the moment.

Well done. As a photographer one needs to look for the stream when it is running. Not flooded or dry but running. And I think you did well and got the photographs when the scene was the most meaningful. Truly, for those interested in the world beyond their backyard, this is an inspiration.

Wonderful shots of the scene. I think that the only time you will find that place empty is early morning. I just looked through my recent photos and surprisingly I have one or two of Tire Bouchon which you can see in the background of your photo but I totally missed taking any photos of Le Consulat... must return (hah!)

That's a wonderful shot!
I recognized it immediately, though I've never sat down.
What a fun place!

Hi Dianne! With the long weekend here in Lisbon (four days off...), I finally manage to stroll around Blogosphere... But I would rather stroll in Montmartre right now... ;)

Blogtrotter Two is visiting some beautiful villages... Enjoy and have a splendid weekend!!
