Day 25 ~ Sunday at the Orsay and a lazy evening!

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.  IMG_3352 IMG_3353 IMG_3354 IMG_3355 IMG_3356 IMG_3357 IMG_3358 IMG_3359  – I loved this picture – it looked like a photograph! IMG_3360 IMG_3361 The detail of the sculptures was shocking to me – and nothing that my camera can do justice to. IMG_3362 

There was also a really cool exhibit on the architecture of schools – and that was very interesting to me! IMG_3365 IMG_3366 IMG_3367 IMG_3363 IMG_3364 IMG_3368 IMG_3369 IMG_3370 IMG_3371 IMG_3372 IMG_3373 IMG_3374 IMG_3375 IMG_3376 IMG_3377 IMG_3378 IMG_3379 IMG_3380 IMG_3381 IMG_3382 IMG_3383 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! IMG_3384 IMG_3385 IMG_3386 IMG_3387 IMG_3388 IMG_3389 IMG_3390 IMG_3391 IMG_3392 IMG_3393 IMG_3395 IMG_3396 IMG_3397 IMG_3398 IMG_3399 IMG_3400 IMG_3401 IMG_3402 IMG_3403 IMG_3404 IMG_3405 IMG_3406 IMG_3407 IMG_3408 IMG_3409 IMG_3410 IMG_3411 IMG_3412 IMG_3413 IMG_3414 IMG_3415 IMG_3416 IMG_3417 IMG_3419 IMG_3420 IMG_3421 IMG_3422 IMG_3423 IMG_3424 IMG_3425 IMG_3426 IMG_3427

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! 🙂
