Paris 3....are you getting bored yet?

Hope not...I want to post it up anyway....

The only bit of colour in this post....at the George Pompidou....


Sadly, I don't understand all the graffiti, so if it says something REALLY terrible, let me know m'kay? That'd be you elP.


The church at Montmartre....was FILLED with tourists (unlike us....) ....but still had some interesting points..
.

I like this one...me on a bad day....or maybe a good day.

I like the geometry of this shot....all curves and angles...

SNOW!!!!

These freaky shoes...like em? You could be sporting these for a mere 650€!!! That's gotta be around 800 bucks...look like Dr Suess, no?

Cannot remember the artist's name, but it was a whole room....and if I think about it, I'll come up with it....give me a bit...it's called Winter Garden at the Pompidou ...Keith Haring maybe? Looks like his work.


Do you like the flying buttresses????

More graffiti I don't understand...


Lots of grey....

Scrolled down and did a little catching up. Lovely photos, looks like you saw a lot on your trip.

Glad your tooth situation is better than you originally thought and the price is right too. Also good you got heat and internet problems solved.

1) yes this story is about you, who in the heavenly light try to lead your soul because if one lets his gaze drift towards the depths of the Tartarus, one loses what one cherishes.
Probably some reference to this dude who wanted to get his girlfriend back from hell, and was told he could take her, but he had to never look back on the way out, or else he'd loose everything. Sounds familiar?

2) The chill is the best part of man. Goethe

Love the smoking sculpture! And Monet? Claude, I could stare at your work forever! I don't know what that graffiti says either, but it seems so much more elegant than the stuff plastered on walls in the US. I'm not bored yet, not by a long shot.

Lovely, thanks for sharing. And at least your sister said you looked like one of the previously posted paintings and not the gargoyle!
