(285) I stepped outside the art museum and here was this little one skateboarding in his cape, seemingly oblivious to everything else.
"I never rebel so much against France as not to regard Paris with a friendly eye; she has had my heart since my childhood.... I love her tenderly, even to her warts and her spots. I am French only by this great city: the glory of France, and one of the noblest ornaments of the world"...Michel de Montaigne

I'll have what she's having...

(284) A shadow shot from inside the restaurant at Musée d’Orsay--This Paris museum used to be a train station; the giant clock overlooks the Seine below...enchanting at every turn. This museum is a great place to get lost, or just lose yourself.

French Toast

(283) Leave it to the French to present food so beautifully...would you like heart-shaped strawberry slices on your toast? ...Oui, s'il vous plaît!
"Paris is the city in which one loves to live. Sometimes I think this is because it is the only city in the world where you can step out of a railway station—the Gare D’Orsay—and see, simultaneously, the chief enchantments: the Seine with its bridges and bookstalls, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Tuileries Gardens, the Place de la Concorde, the beginning of the Champs Elysees—nearly everything except the Luxembourg Gardens and the Palais Royal. But what other city offers as much as you leave a train?"...Margaret Anderson

At The Museum...(or not?)

Ever wonder what your paintings/photographs would look like in a museum?
Go here to play and see what fun it is.

(282) "All in all the creative act is not formed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contributions to the creative act"...Marcel Duchamp

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast"...-Ernest Hemingway
