Barbès-Rochechouart

mercredi, octobre 1st, 2008

This odd word is not the name of some smelly French cheese, but the one of a metro station in Montmartre. This shot was taken from the far left of the pier facing the Sacré-Coeur church hill. A boy was standing on the opposite pier. For a moment, it seemed that he was headed towards the rails, ignoring the yellow sign next to him where  « no trepassing, danger of death » was written. The kind of drama that happens several times a year in Paris. Hopefully not this time.
