Avant et après II

Continuing the series of images taken last November before and after the attacks on 13 novembre, 2015. 

On 13 novembre I had the pleasure of meeting Edouard de Bailliencourt, the Sales Representative , North America, for Galieries Lafayette for lunch and a tour of the beautiful store. After our lunch, I was free to roam the store taking photos of their fabulous Christmas decorations. I made sure to go up to the rooftop observation deck for a sweeping view of the city. The French flag flying atop the magnificent Opéra Garnier  caught my eye.

Note: It was with great sadness that we all mourn the injuries and loss of lives as a result of the attacks on the city of Brussels today.

It's so sad when these acts of terror rise up and terrorize the world.
