Many of you will remember when I was in Paris last week, I posted photos of the Buren columns in the snow.....without the bright red security wall around them. For as long as I've traveled to Paris, they have been "under wraps" during their controversial refurbishing. I've posted several shots that I captured by pushing my lens up against the plastic window. Not very satisfying. Well imagine my delight when the wall came down overnight, just in time for the snowfall on Saturday! To prevent accidents I suppose, the area was still cordoned off with yellow police tape.....until our very last night. ( I think the Parisian photography gods really do like me!) We cut through the Palais Royal on our way home and VOILÀ!!! It was almost dark, but there were a few kiddos already having some fun. This one's *not quite sharp, but I really love the silhouette!
My friend Peter has a nice post about the columns today as well. I slipped him the hot tip that they were open for business just before I left. Jump over to his blog and read about the history. I just love when he does all the work and I just sit back and link! :)
* I seem to be apologizing for "not quite sharp" photos a lot lately. I promise this is the last marginal photo I'll post. Merci for your patience and understanding!
