Photographer's Note

This man was standing outside the Catholic Basiclica of Sacre Coeur up on the hill of Montmartre. The hill is 130m high and has a wonderful view. Montmartre means 'mountain of the martyr' it owes its name to the martyrdom of St Denis (the Bishop of Paris) who was decapitated on the hill around 250AD. At the end of the 19th century Montmartre was the centre of artistic life in Paris. Many artists including Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh, Monet and Dali worked and lived here.
-Information from Wikipedia
We still saw many artists painting in the street when we visited there.
Scanned from print, I also could not decide if I liked the black and white version I had converted or this one. Please see workshop for other version.
