what is the “petite ceinture”? “the small belt” is an old railway line who makes a turn all around paris (30 km !! ) but inside of paris.
from outside to inside you have “the peripherique” a kind of highway around paris, more inside there is the “boulevards des Maréchaux”: an old highway in the 60th and then you have the “petite ceinture” a railway line around paris.
since 20 or 30 years no railway passed here, it’s a kind of no men’s land, forbitten to enter and the playground of street artists and young people to breath another air and feel free: you don’t hear anything, no noise, you are inside and really outside of the city, birds, nature and green all around. a forbidden place but you can breath the liberty….all pictures with my new leica q; special thanks to “gb” the street artist who explained me the art and the codes of doing grafitti:
