Photographer's Note

Some people DO cities and I must admit I did THREE museums in two days when I was in Paris last weekend :))) NO KIDDING. I was also crying a little bit at the end of the day when I returned to my hotel room with feet of an elephant … LOL … instead of a romantic dinner by the Seine I was sitting on my hotel bed watching TV. But I mean when you go through your travel guide there is this endless list of “must sees”. My “did does” were Maison Européenne de Photographie, Musée du Quai Branly and Musé Rodin which I have seen years ago and belongs to my favorites (especially the garden).

This photo was taken in the lower part of Musée du Quai Branly. You are allowed to take photos but with no flash light. The pattern on the floor comes from a light beamer, some sort of slide show. The museum’s website is pretty horrible and does not show what I felt in there, this is why I do not link it. The museum wants to show tribal culture and art of Africa, Oceania and America. It is an amazing museum and my travel guide writes that it is understood as a dialog of cultures and wants less to describe in detail what the single objects mean (this is held to a minimum) but far more they see the display as art as a whole (hard to translate :))) I hope you understand what I write). There are small rooms with music or films, nothing loud but very held back. The rooms are pretty dark with only light on the single objects.

I wonder how the feet of this man did :)))


For TE members something to keep in mind for your next visit (in case you have not been):
