Nightly Walk in Montmartre
Every night I walk our dog through the streets of Montmartre. Even after living here for ten years, it is hard to take these windy, paved hills for granted. Every night I pass the apartment where Eric Satie's composed his music and where Vincent Van Gogh lived with his brother, Theo for four years on Rue Lepic. I also stroll by the atelier where Picasso painted his famous "Period Bleu' series. This evening it was raining so there was a void in the streets compared to the usual tourist swarms on a Saturday night.
