The Abbesses neighborhood in Paris’ 18th arrondissement is always a great place for a walk with your camera. Amidst the buildings covered in colorful graffiti and signposts plastered with quirky stickers, there are trendy boutiques and eateries aplenty. The vibrant area also has one of the few remaining art nouveau metro entrances by Hector Guimard, and many famed bakeries, including the 2011 Best Baguette in Paris winner, Au Levain d’Antan. Its cobblestone streets and narrow staircases lead up to the top of la butte, where the views of Paris are sure to please the photographer in you!
