France and Italy, 2004

Paris

We stayed a week in an apartment near Arts et Metiers metro station. It was tiny, and the windows opened onto a light well. It provided a base to see Paris, but that's about all that could be said good about it.

On a corner of an apartment building near the metro station was this lovely Art Deco concrete angel.

Sculpture near St Sulpice church called L'Ecoute.

Decoration in Sainte Chappelle

And more

An unusual view of the Louvre museum and glass pyramid.

A statue in the Louvre. Do you recognise it?

Part of Rodin's statue of the Burghers of Calais.

Modest decoration on a Paris bridge.

A delightful little statue in the Musée d'Orsay.

And a larger one by Ponpom who specialised in animal sculptures. He did this in 1907.

It's a pity that polar bears are not actually cute.

It was wet much of the time we were in Paris. A typical Parisian scene viewed from the external escalator at the Pompidou Centre.

The statue is the Venus de Milo. Click here to go on to Hong Kong
