Photographer's Note

A tangle of pipes, tv antennae, satellite dishes, chimneys and rooftops. Below, the shadowy well of the courtyard. The view from an apartment window in Paris's 9th arrondissement, looking north towards Sacre Coeur, which of course is on the horizon. I leaned out the high bathroom window as well as I could, while the late afternoon Springtime shadows were lengthening, to take the shot. The apartment is ituated on rue du Faubourg Montmartre, about half way between the Louvre and Sacre Coeur; Grands Boulevards is the nearest Metro station, and the Opera is neaby, while across the street is the bookshop-filled arcade, Passage Verdeau, one of Paris's remaining elegant Passages Couverts.
