Bir Hakeim to Passy

A while ago I mentioned that the hotel we stayed at in September in Paris was on Metro Line 6, and how convenient that is.

My Favorite Metro station is on Metro line 6, so last time we were in Paris I took the opportunity to make a short video. Even though my camera has a 24mm wide angle lens, it isn't big enough to properly take in the view. In order to stop as much camera shake as I could I hand clamped the camera to the train window, which meant I was square on to everything. Thus you kinda get an idea of the view without getting the view. Tant pis, as they say...


You will notice the lack of clackity-clack. Line 6 is one of the Paris Metro lines that runs on rubber tyres.

  1. We specifically went there in September and walked across the bridge - Inception - the film had a scene there as well as other movies. The side of the bridge has some lovely figures on it as well.

    1. That's the sort of thing certain members of my family would do too. It is a nice bridge, full of photographic opportunities.

  2. Simon, you forgot to mention that you can get a glimpse at the Australian Embassy! I, too, like Line 6, since my place is near Sèvres-Lecourbe, up, or down the line depending which way you're going.

    1. Yes, you get a good view of the Australain Embassy. We've mentioned it in previous posts about the area I think.
