The Grand Palais was built in the late 1800's as an exhibition hall. The big Courbet painting detail advertises a showing of the artist's work.
I'll show you detailed photos of the building on another day, instead, here are some street scenes taken on 15 Mar 2008. Unfortunately I didn't have beautiful blue skies so most of my photos got tossed. A couple came to the Pont Alexander III for their wedding photos.
I absolutely laughed when the Japanese tourists asked to pose with them and the one woman put her fingers in a peace sign (you can barely see it in the hand behind the bride). Do you remember Tanya's post about that particular habit?
Look, budding trees along the Seine. Spring can't be too far off.I can't believe how many photos I've never posted. I guess when you take 140 photos at a shot it's a bit hard to cram them all in.
