Sunset from the Jeu de Paume


Monday I was telling you about about the beautiful view we have when we stand in front of the Jeu de Paume at the end of the Tuileries garden. Here is what I saw when I got of the Kertész photo exhibition. The sun was going down and the Eiffel tower in the far away seemed nearly as big as the Obelisk on the Place de la Concorde. Who could resist to take the picture ?

Oh, Laurent, this is surely one of my favorites and may surpass the obelisk and la grande roue photo of yours... That pink/orange sky is the perfect backdrop with the fading sun and those amazingly familiar monuments... sorry, I am gushing

I love a well-executed silhouette! Nicely done. Wasn't the Kertész exhibition wonderful? Before my visit in November, I was unfamiliar with his work.
