Photos of a Muse

Sacré Coeur Basilica

Paris Karin and I went to the Pompidou center on Sunday (2010-09-05), despite my deep seated loathing of modern art. It turned out not to be as bad as I’d feared, but what impressed me more than the burnt cellophane wall hanging were the views from on high. Case in point…

  1. I agree, the views are fantastic from certain points there. However, I’m not much of a modern art fan either. The last time I was there, there were three white canvases ~ huge ones ~ hanging in a row. That’s art? Really?

    • I know! I had more fun trying to sneak photos of the people looking at the art than the art itself. Although, I must say, there was an erotic exhibit by female artists and that was a nice way to break up the monotony! Besides, as it was the 1st Sunday of the month we got in free, so I guess you could say I got what I paid for!

      Thanks for stopping by and see you in the streets!

    Is that a normal sunday crowd for the Basilica
    ? and are the surrounding structures connected with it in some way?

    • Hey there, Ken,

      The Sacré Coeur is always a huge draw in Paris and a sunny Sunday is as perfect a time as any to stop by. Many of the smaller structures are indeed abbeys and whatnot, but the most unique, white building is a water tower, believe it or not.

      See you in the streets!
