Football in Montmartre


Like many countries France is fully into the Football World Cup going on in South Africa (wish our team were too!). Not an hour without football talks ! This past weekend I was in Montmartre and I saw this guy doing a very good street show with his ball in front of the Sacre Coeur Basilica.

It's impressive what some people can do with a football sometimes.

Ah, I missed this guy when I was at Montmatre; though my friends managed to catch his performance. It looks brilliant, with the backdrop of the city.

Football. I don't understand it but I like soccer.

Excellent capture! Beautiful shot.

This guy has been there and at the Trocadero for some time. I guess he makes a decent living at it because he obviously doesn't work.

Excellent capture of the motion in this image, Laurent!
«Louis» knows exactly where the man is standing. If he lost his footing, to say that he would have a bit of a plunge is an understatement!

The place where the soccer player is standing was also seen in the final images of C'était un Rendez-vous.
