Paris la nuit

We ended Friday with a visit to the Pompidou.  The weather gods have smiled on us most of the time; it has been almost shirtsleeve weather and very little rain.  But it started to drizzle at about 6:30 pm when we arrived at the museum.  The view of the city from l'escalier méchanique, which is on the outside of the building,was beautiful, but these photos I took as we ascended were filtered by the raindrops, so they look as though they have been photoshopped. Not so.

The museum closed at 9h so there was barely enough time to see everything.  The Roy Lichtenstein retrospective was amazing and we are both surprised by his sculptures and the artwork that was not entirely like the typical cartoon styles you picture when you think of his work.  The permanent collection, which is always changing, was superb and loaded with pieces by both Robert and Sonia Delaunay.   The one below is obviously not one of them.
'Nite.

Such beautiful photos....I would definitely enlarge them for display. I hope they provide inspiration for future work.
