A Nightime Walk to Montmartre (Seven F31 Pics)

Well I picked up my F31 for the first time in about 6 weeks recently mainly so I could share a few photos with all of you and because it was such a pleasure to use this little gem of a camera during a nightime walk from the apartment where we were staying in the 17th Arrondissement to Montmartre, the hilly part of the city that, once upon a time, used to be a little village overlooking Paris.

I hope you like the results as much as I enjoyed my nightime walk...

Regards,

Ian
