RUBY TUESDAY # 11





Le Moulin Rouge is the perfect French subject for Ruby Tuesday.

Close to Montmartre, the Moulin Rouge is still a cabaret since its creation at the end of the XIXth century. Famous for the origin of the Cancan dance which makes part of the performance, still nowaday.

Get something in Red to share or you want to watch more participants, go and visit Mary at Work of the Poet, she gets all the addresses.

  5. Even I know the history of Mouline Rouge, and also the paintings of Henri Toulose-Lautrec.
    So very interesting to see it, I'd say, almost live.
    Never been to Paris, but my daughter was quite obsessed, or Francofile after being there for a week only.

    I guess I have to go in not too long.

  7. This is why I love these memes - to see things sometimes one has only heard or read about.

  9. Now that you've posted it, I have to wonder how Moulin Rouge didn't make it into your R/T before now! But maybe you were just waiting for the perfect chance to snap these... great job!

  11. Catherine, the Moulin Rouge is a perfect subject for Ruby Tuesday. Very fine photographs!
    The performance of the Cancan dance there is unforgettable indeed, for the good music, the wealth of costumes and choreographies.
