Paris (photo friday Grandeur)



photo friday's new theme is "Grandeur"

either landscapes or monuments, i thought. and then arrived back in Paris, at the Musee d'Orsay. no photos allowed in the exhbition itself, though - the photo above is from their museum restaurant. below, the view of the museum from the other side of the Seine River.



and one more grandeur: the Musee d'Orsay first was a grand railway station
- the clock from these days is still there:

Opulence and then some - great pics!

I'd love to go back to Paris and hang out in an old apartment there for a while, painting and taking photos...decadence - filthy with grandness.

thanks :) and yes, to live in Paris for a while - i dreamed about that, too, while there. and later read those notes from people who actually lived in Paris - here's more with some photos: http://virtual-notes.blogspot.de/2012/01/paris-was-ours-global-reading-challenge.html
