I saw a banner up at rue Ordener advertising open artist studios at the city of Montmartre, and I had to go check it out.
It was a block of three studio apartments (actual studios, for a change), just for artists. A number of them had their living/working spaces open in a coordinates open house, and it was fascinating to see both living and working spaces.
Studios that were open were marked by a red balloon or three.
I loved this woman's garden. There were also bee boxes and garden allotments in the back.
And here's the view from the balcony of the third building. I love Paris rooftops.
