ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Above, gray and rainy city views from the Promenade Plantée.

The Promenade Plantee is a 4.5 km-long elevated park in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, France. It was constructed on an abandoned 19th-century railway viaduct, which connected the Bastille area to the eastern suburbs of Paris, and ceased operation on December 14, 1969. The parkway runs from the Opera Bastille to the eastern city limits, ending up only a short distance from the Bois de Vincennes.

It is currently the only elevated park in the world, although there are plans to build a similar park on the High Line viaduct in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan... -- wikipedia.org

For some reason I'm surprised Japan or China do not have an elevated park. Yet, I suppose. Nice set.

Great series. Even on a rainy and gray day, you've managed to capture the warmth of the park.

The last one has some 19sixties postcard feeling (colors, not crowded street). Very nice !
