Photographer's Note

The canal Saint-Martin as seen from one of the many bridges connecting the two sides.A very beautiful and different than the usual touristic places. It stretches from the Square Frédérick Lemaître to the Rue Lafayette and shortcuts a long loop in the River Seine on the eastern side of Paris in the Xe arrondissement.The canal was opened in 1825 after Napoleon had ordered the artificial waterway dug to supply Paris with water, however by the 1960s, traffic had dwindled to a trickle and the canal narrowly escaped being filled in and paved over for a highway.
