paris : walking by the louvre & through the tuileries

6.20.2012













































we began our paris visit with a trip to the louvre...we didn't go inside because we figure
we'll be back here again soon, and we would prefer to have an entire day just for this
magnificent museum. so we walked slowly through the grounds, and over to the tuileries
where we sat in the shade, and discovered a product design exhibit for gardening miscellany.

what a beautiful morning we had! in the afternoon we headed to the musee d'orsay
where we were able to see a special exhibit of degas' sketches...seriously incredible.
that artist had some magic in his fingers and in his heart. we browsed the rest of the collection,
spending time with great works of art, and finding new little faves.
a beautiful afternoon indeed...



next up, the eiffel tower!

This is ahhhhmazing! I love the grass stacked in the cubes...

Seeing art in person is the best. The detail is amazing up close. Glad you had a good time. I hope to make it out there someday...

Oh, you'll need an entire day! If you want to see everything you even need three days :p

i truly love the louvre so much! did you go inside? it's quite overwhelming but worth it. though the outside and courtyard are fantastic alone!
