Parc des Buttes Chaumont: A Very Photogenic Park

The Park Buttes Chaumonts is a huge park in the north of Paris. It is a particularly photogenic park and an excellent lomolocation. Let me tell you why.

The Parc des Buttes Chaumont is located in the north of Paris, in the hearth of the 19th arrondisement (metros:Buttes Chaumont, Botzaris, Pyrénées, Laumière and Bolivar). It is an excellent park for doing all those things you do in a park. You know, sunbathe, a picnic, play music in the park, etc.

I love taking pictures at the Buttes Chaumont. Let me tell you about all the things I love in this park. First, it’s hilly, very hilly. It abounds in hills. This makes it a good spot for shooting people, specially ones who are not expecting it.

It has lots of hidden corners that allow for bucolic photos just in the middle of the city.

It has a few Chinese and English gardens, which are great for all flower addicts like myself.

It has several bridges, grottoes, a lake, and a belvedere modeled on an ancient Roman temple. All things very photogenic!

Finally, it is up high! You can take great photos overlooking the city from there!

Ooh! And have I mentioned that you can enter the petite ceinture abandoned railway from the park? checkout Elvismartinezsmith’s lomolocation.

PS:Thanks to Mr. Elvismartinezsmith and Mr. Jeabzz] for letting me use their photos.
