Paris

 

Inside the Museum d'Orsay

 

Paris as a feeling to it, romantic, hip and exclusive.  I loved Paris like so many city's in Europe it reminds you of a movie you have watched.  I think that is most likely because so many sights have been in movies.

Venus de Milo in Louvre


The museums in Paris were simply wonderful, the gardens are spectacular.  Food in Paris is also wonderful and we preferred a small bistro to the more upscale.

I like the people in Paris and had a great time.  Paris reminds me of New York, everyone is in a hurry and people have a place to go.  Sit yourself in a cafe or bar and enjoy the sights and take in a smile or two.  Paris is one place I wish I spent more time in.

On the streets of Paris

 


Long considered the paragon of style, Paris is the most glamorous city in Europe. It is at once deeply traditional a village-like metropolis whose inhabitants continue to be notorious for their hauteur and famously cosmopolitan

Inside the Museum d'Orsay


As you can see this portion of the museum was once a railroad station.

Arc de Triomphe


Engraved around the top of the Arch are the names of major victories won during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods. The names of less important victories, as well as those of 558 generals, are to found on the inside walls. Generals whose names are underlined died in action.

Beneath the Arch is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and eternal flame commemorating the dead of the two world wars.

Luxembourg Garden


Camera lens: on this trip I used a Nikkor 28-200mm D lens.  Not liked by many but is quite useful when you want the all in one lens.  I now use a Nikkor 24-120mm VR lens as my all in one lens.
