chim chim chimneys

there are
 water towers
 water tanks
 on the parisian buildings


 they do have a lot of chimneys
 looking up is incredibly lovely

here's an interesting fact i learned
 see the irregular coloration
 of the bricks 
on that wall
 i nicely edited for you?

 when a chimney is in need of repair
must be ripped open
 when the repair is completed

 i took that photo our first day in paris
 among other places
 we walked to
took the metro to
 paris' version of the highline 
which predates the nyc version
 by about 20 years
 its called
la promenade plantee 
coulée verte
