Having studied French at University and lived in the country for a while myself, I'm something of a Francophile, and with the Eurostar connection from London being so quick and convenient, there's really no reason not to visit more often ~ heck, I... One of my favourite Paris museums, not just for the art works (lots of Impressionism and a fantastic Art Nouveau gallery), but for the building. Orsay was a former Beaux-Arts railway station, built between 1898 and 1900, and re-opened as an art gallery in 1986. The space is just gorgeous inside, with the enormous guilded station clock still in place in the huge hall. There are two further clocks on the side of the building, facing the Seine. Another favourite, this is the oldest bridge in Paris with its iconic curved seating. This glorious exhibition space, which has been recently rennovated and reopened in late 2014, is well worth a visit, for the building if not for the wonderful collection of art it contains. The lighting is perfect for displaying some of Picasso's most important works.
I love the blue hues in your museum look. A perfect selection of layers for what sounds like a dazzling day. Of course I love the idea of an “Icon” Room but the pieces look so spectacular. I also love your idea of collecting photos of ‘Captivating Crones’. You look royal, dressed perfectly for an exhibit of Cartier jewels. I love the word Crone and am glad you are exercising its right to respect and beauty. The crone you photographed is also definitely captivating and I look forward to this series. For someone as fascinated by jewellery as me, particular gemstones, this is dream exhibit. If only Cartier would give us Europeans a chance to see it. Your sapphire blue outfit is so appropriate among all these gems, and fantastic on you. You definitely outshine most jewellery How lovely to see more beautiful and stylish crones. Captivating Crones will be a huge success I’m sure. What a beautiful exhibit, and you are so lucky to be living in the only city that it is being shown. I have no knowledge about precious jewels like the ones in the exhibit, but I would love to see it just for the eye candy. You look like a beautiful sapphire yourself The “Captivating Crones” series sounds like a wonderful idea – Do it. What a beautiful day you had. The Captivating Crones series is a definite must.
There was a smell of dry pine needles from Christmas trees tossed there months ago, amid discarded fast food wrappers and stray debris. A brick wall and sidewalks nearby were cluttered with posters from municipal elections last month, the runoff elections scheduled for April. In 2013, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago launched a study of small businesses. The study’s grid of pre- and post-recession sentiment showed an expansion of negative to neutral everywhere except for the lakefront. Elements of that were present in West Town last month. The neighborhood is near Ukrainian Village and Wicker Park, an area from the highway to Damen, where scruffy upstarts have given way to sports clubs and yogurt shops. Bars and independent cafés there were a sanctuary for people seeking a less corporate ambiance. Swim Café was one of those places, managed by a friendly woman named Karen. The café had a motley staff with a tendency to offer free food and chat with customers. It closed in December of 2013. The shop was empty until February of last year. That store is the Awake Café, owned by Harry and Deb McKinney.
