Andrea, Kilgore and I are walking up the hill to Sacré-Coeur when out of nowhere we see this scene, which needless to say can be mesmerizing to someone seeing it for the first time as was the case with us.

Le Passe-Muraille translated is, "the man who walks through walls".

The five-photo, hand-held panorama was taken with a Nikon D750 and the Nikkor 24-120mm f/4 lens.

    Kilgore, as a photographer or as a gigapanographer, I doubt that you will command much attention as what a terrorist would generate, but I can't say the same for your tripod ... when visiting Paris, don't bring your tripod, nor your drone; otherwise, the police may imbed you in stone like this poor fellow in this GigaPan. His last words may have simply been, "Cheers".

    You've reminded me that I want to take a spherical gigapan from the centre of the crossroads in the middle of the shopping area. I just need a bit of cash to get over there. Oh and the cooperation of the Paris police to close the area off to all tourist for a couple of hours on a sunny day in the Summer :-)

    Well, you got that right ... lots and lots of plaques all over Montmartre, and so many photo vistas that one could live there their entire life and never be bored. Even just walking aimlessly as we did provided many, many lifetime memories.

    This shot certainly brings back good memories of the walk up the hill - lots of fine architecture - some of it apparently so noteworthy it has the architect's name on a plaque outside. Note to the interested tourist - this is the walk up the hill from the North (i.e. non-city) side where the buses take you.
