Paris by Night

No, not One Night In Paris -- that's a different kind of picture -- but Paris by Night: part of a 360-degree panorama of the City of Light you can find here. This tiny part of it shows the flank of Notre Dame looking towards La Tour Eiffel.

  1. Fascinating. And this was the city the seemingly deranged Corbousier wished to demolish and replace with his crap.

  2. Amen to that, george. I was in Paris just a couple of months ago, staying right opposite Notre Dame in the Saint Germain area and I fell in love with the city. The French have such a genuine love for and pride in their beautiful capital - words simply fail me.

    A couple of years previously I was in India and, while India is superb for very different reasons, I had the misfortune to visit Chandigargh, which was designed by the nutter le Corbusier.

    Thank God le Corbusier didn't get the opportunity to make a souless hell-hole like Chandigargh out of la belle Paris.

    I wonder if le Corbusier was the one responsible for those ghetto-like concrete high rises that fringe Paris? I didn't see much of those so I can't say. But Paris itself.... omg!
