Every city is layered with history, recent or ancient, visible or hidden.  Dense packed city buildings layer flats (or apartments) above shops and offices, one home above another.  Roads are layered above metro lines, bridges above quaysides.  In Paris trees line riverside quays while an upper layer of streets run at tree top level.  Paris isn’t a very hilly city but there are still districts where streets bridge each other at different levels and pedestrian staircases link the different layers.  Every one of these photos is a partial selection from a layered view.
