Happy Fourth of July! No fireworks here in Paris, but I did spot a couple of people on the street at various times wearing American flag shirts. Not even sure they were Americans. Amazing views from our corner room’s two balconies–different sides of the building so slightly different views. The Louvre, the Tuilleries and across the Seine to Musee d’Orsay. Had fun shooting from the top of the HOHO bus today and that’s what I’m sharing. Today’s catc: (click the photos to enlarge):

3:25 at Musée ‘Orsay. The largest collection of Impressionist art is housed here on the left bank of the  Seine in the former Gare d’Orsay, an impressive Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900.

The Eiffel Tower, of course, named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World’s Fair. It is the height of an 81-story building.

The Musée du Louvre or simply The Louvre—located on the Right Bank of the Seine across the street from our hotel, The Regina Paris. With more than 8 million visitors each year, the Louvre is the world’s most visited museum.

Bonjour, Monsieur!

Ooh La La Man

This photographer on the grounds of the Louvre was having way too much fun. Tom wondered if he was one of my pals from the camera club. He said, “Isn’t that LB?”
