Today I headed to the Orsay Museum, and was disappointed initially to learn that one of the paintings that I had hoped to see was on loan, but no worries – the Orsay was fabulous and I was sucked into the magical world of art for several hours.
The Orsay is an old train station, and as such, the building itself has some attraction as a beautiful building in its own right. – I loved this picture – it looked like a photograph! The detail of the sculptures was shocking to me – and nothing that my camera can do justice to.
There was also a really cool exhibit on the architecture of schools – and that was very interesting to me! One of the coolest things was the model of the Garnier Opera – theater friends – check out the scenery area! That’s a bunch of pulleys!
After hours and in the Orsay, I was fading, and starting on a headache, so I headed back to Joy’s, and we just had an evening of talking, Ice cream, wine and a movie – not a bad evening! 🙂

Fabulous place to spend the day!
The converted railway station is a wonderful space and appears perfectly suited for art gallery use. I enjoyed your images of the paintings and sculpture.
I’m traveling virtually with you my friend.
