This place gave me the creeps. I couldn't go near it. I started shaking inside.

This place creeped me out, couldn't go near it by waxpancake.
There was a couple just outside of this shot laying in the grass who needed some privacy, but who needs privacy in Paris?

At the base of the Eiffel Tower there are go carts. This guy takes a few euros from you and picks the right vehicle out for your child. You get to go around eight times. And every kid that leaves he says 'goodbye champion' in french. Tres adorable.

So awesome

A little excited!

Decided against taking the trip up. The long lines plus the price just didn't seem worth it on this very crowded July day. But that did not stop us from taking photos of all this beauty.

I adored this carousel at the base of the tower but it was shady! Lots of local thieves taking advantage of the heavy tourist spot. Sad but true.

So bright!

Jean-Francois Millet is a relative of ours and here in Paris I found the largest display of his work I ever dreamed to see.

This looks like a model to me! It's actually a little picture opportunity perch high inside the museum. This is a brilliant use of space.

Musee d'Orsay is an old train station. Brilliant. by waxpancake.

Some famous treasures:
This first one is a favorite of mine and she's huge. A person of average height would probably find themselves eye to eye with the dolphin.

Musee d'Orsay- this is enormous! by waxpancake.

As we were walking along the Seine this fantastic woman pulls up on her Vespa, plaid pants, pink helmet and beauty. I quickly asked if I could take her picture in my broken French and she replied, "oui oui!" I clicked, smiled, said a big Merci! And she was gone. I wonder what this woman's life is like….

loved this lady so much asked if i could take her pic! by waxpancake.

Try not to eat your screen. These were the most amazing, delicate, cloud-like desserts. Extraordinary in texture and taste. Love goes into these. You taste it.
