La face

When in Paris, always check their website for exhibits.

Thanks to readers Mad About Paris and Avery Sloan who shared this information on Mona Bismarck.
I have had the good fortune to visit twice while in Paris. Peter Olson and I toured a beautiful Yusuf Karsh exhibit there and in 2014, we attended a street photography seminar led by photographer Meredith Mullins.

An enigmatic expression on the face, I see.

A very pretty face, and a fine wrought iron crown a above her.
