Out of the Jurisdiction: Reflecting on Paris


This bust of an aristocratic woman is reflected in a mirror at Musée Carnavalet.


You probably wondered how that beautiful writing on the windows of luxury stores is done.
Now you know.  You're welcome.


Hah!  Tricked you.  These are separate busts of twin brothers active in the French revolution.
Musée Carnavalet.


And, this window is on a wall seen as you exit from Musée Picasso.  Cubism!!


You want the Eiffel Tower?  You got the Eiffel Tower.  And a bonus.

The first photo didn't load properly, but your caption I found interesting. Oh, that sort of bust!

What a tres joli time I've had looking at your holiday shots Jack, so jealous.. Images like these are good for me, they help me to get over my fear of flying :) Love these French visage shots, not quite sure what it is but French people have a definite French 'look'!

Brilliant photos, my favourite is the one with the window. And of course, I like the fake:-)

These are fun pictures. I especially like the wall of windows. Such a photographic city!

I'm enjoying your French holiday, Jack! I have a friend with a sign company and he can still do that window writing but it is definitely becoming a lost art - everything seems to be vinyl cutouts.

I'm enjoying seeing Paris through your eyes.

I wouldn't mind having one of those mugs, and the busts certainly are impressive!

Love that first shot!

I like the first shot. What talent it must take to carve out a bust with features that evoke feeling.

Now you've gone and made me all envious again. I'll be there in Nov. Hope you left me some Paris Jack!
