The steps of Montmartre



Or, as it should be known, "Les Escaliers de Montmartre".  It is a famous image from the Hungarian photographer, Gyula Halász who moved to Paris in 1924 and spent the rest of his life there.   The steps lead up the hill of Montmartre to the Basilica of Sacré Coeur.

  2. You are most definitely on the job, ma'am. You've not missed a single day, as far as I know. Don't think I've seen a card I haven't liked. I often wish I had several of my favorites.

    Great blog. Thanks for having us, and for giving us reasons to return.

    1. Thank you so much, Limner. If you knew the scrambling that went on in the background, you'd be less impressed. :)

    1. I don't think it will ever date. It will still be as beautiful in 100 years, no doubt.

  5. I have a photography book with several of his pictures, and other early photographers. I never get tired of looking at them.
