Opera Garnier sculptures
These are more like drawings. They are the group sculptures on the facade of the Opera Garnier. I love sculptures, and was so impressed by the French architecture. There is nothing like this in the US! So grand. So rich in details and beauty. Everywhere you look, the Paris streets greet you with visual treats. My camera could hardly stay in my bag.
We tried to get tickets for a show in Garnier that day, but got there too late. The only two tickets left were 200 euros each. Well we didn't want to see the show that bad to pay that much! And really, it was because--we spent too much time across the street in the Galerie Lafayette.
Afternoon snack in Galerie Lafayette. With a cup of coffee, it's a perfect pick-me-up. So delicious.
Cute salt and pepper shakers in the Lafayette Gourmet store.
French girls in front of the Opera Garnier. Love the flower in her hair.
If there is one thing I can complain about Paris, it's--too many smokers! They are everywhere!
