A day at the Orsay

Today was a grey-skies day in Paris, which normally I find to be rather depressing in any other place in the world, but today I found it to be quite beautiful. It was not too cold and all the autumn leaves were beautiful and perfect. The city felt as romantic as ever as I strolled along the Seine from Les Invalides to le Musée d'Orsay, stopping for a long lunch at a small cafe along the way.

The museum is currently holding an Art Nouveau exhibit, which I visited first and I quickly fell in love. I will post another post about it later, but for now... Impressionism. Perhaps my long lunch went a little too long, because I didn't have as much time as I would have liked at the museum before it closed, but I managed to see the Impressionism section, which was what I was looking forward to seeing today. I saw works by Renoir, Monet, Degas, Cezzane, and of course Van Gogh. I just wanted to share with you some of the beautiful art I saw today.



I enjoy your photo-reportage.
