Birthday Surprise

I now have my own copy of Willy's Belleville Menilimontant

                                             © Willy Ronis Belleville Menilmontant

I have always been a fan of Willy Ronis work but by chance and friendship I happened to find myself 2 years ago in the 20e. Despite this being a new neighbourhood for me, I also felt at home and it felt very familiar.  I later discovered Ronis had walked and captured these cobble streets many moons before and produced this set of images.  Some of my favourite views in this book are no longer there, just an echo or charm of the place, but I had fun searching for them.
