Catching up on my photos here and I realized I never told you about the Musée Centre Georges Pompidou (or as the locals say, <<Beaubourg>> because of its location in Paris in the Beaubourg area). I also am throwing in some local photos from out and about where we live. Enjoy!
A short while ago, Mr. K and I went to Free Museum Day with some friends and it was great fun. We got a chance to see the city from the top of Centre Georges Pompidou and then we went into the exhibits. You can only see one floor of exhibits on FMD but it's quite a lot and it's fantastic. Here are my personal favorites.
This one's especially for my sister, Miss K. Voila, a HUGE welding installation that was in a small room. Only 30 people were allowed into the room at a time. So cool.

It's so little! Basically, it spans the width of two hands.
Moving down the floor, another favorite was this one:
|How many French words can you make out?|
Along the hallway they had this one:
|Reminds me of Arabian Nights.|
It's a forest of spices in sacks. I wanted to run through it and smell it all. But, that was not allowed and it was corded off. Bummer. Sometimes I feel like authorities don't understand what the artists may wish. Some artists actually like having people interact with their art. Just ask my sister.
We left after we had our fill of modern art and walked to St. Michel. On the way, Mr. K confiscated the cell phone and then reappeared, grinning from ear to ear. I don't ask anymore. I just wait to see what it was when we get home. It's more fun that way.
This is what he saw:
Why, hello Mr. Steampunk tour guide on the side of Notre Dame! Very cool, Mr. K. He's got a good eye for photos, that one.
So what else have we been doing? Well, enjoying Autumn for one.

This one's my favorite:
|Origami crane installation in the village center bookshop|
|Market day in Antony at a ribbon stall.|
|Picking spinach up at the farm|
Until next time,
