Champs-Élysées - the Christmas Market being dismantled
A very sinister looking neighbourhood at night
One of our last photos from Paris (this time) the view from the lower lever of the RER train while in the station
Busking in the Metro - we don't know who they were, and we know they blocked the path of harried commuters, but we gave them a handful of coins on principle. They sounded very good, too! But we didn't have the time to findo out if we should have bought their CD.
It's a bit rich, but it works for me!
This is the Picasso museum! And I was always told that form followed function. I would have thought that something contemporary with the man would have been the very least they could do. But then the French do refer to neo-classical pastiche as Classical; something does get lost in translation ... or somewhere ...
Window shopping in Le Marais
Streetscape, Le Marais
I'm not really lagging behind, just waiting for the decisive moment to capture electronically
This young dog caught our eye - we've obviously been away from home for far to long
Perhaps the Christmas markets are a year long feature?
The temple has roman columns - two stories high of columns - they obviously didn't notice the Gothic revival, they were so entrenched in in the neo-classical resurgence
The Vatican has a much larger statue in black marble, and they dress him up in fancy clothes at anniversaries etc., but in France, every second church seems to have its' own replica of San Petro
These lead out of an 18 or 19th century church; I don't care if they are unusable by a person on crutches or in a wheel chair, they have an integrity of their own, and I like them (just don't want to have to use them).
I waited for this man to go away, but he kept on taking his photo. For all I know, there was probably another man a block away in the other direction cursing me; but for me, this man spoiled my shot
You can't see the cold wind in this shot, but believe me, it was there
Here you can see a quadriga statue at the top of the roof of the Grand Palais, showing the many details which are normally unseen from the ground while passing by.
This collection of statues is dedicated to Marie Emile Fayolle which can be found at the top of the various statues, with the writing at the base of it reading "Marie Emile Fayolle, Marechal de France 1852 - 1928"
Here in this photo you can see a large statue that is to the side of the Petit Palais' gilded and intricate gate, having been designed for the 1900 World Fair by Charles Girault.
