Across Rue de Rivoli leaving the Louvre Museum, is the lovely Palais Royal. I go there all of the time which you will already know if you have been reading this blog for any length of time. At Christmas they put a Christmas tree(undecorated) on every column of the covered passage ways and roll out a red carpet.
I’ve taken so many photos of the fountains there. These silver balls always reflect the columns of the Palais Royal and the balls themselves. Very Christmassy. One of these days I’m going to buy a blow up Santa Claus and situate him so he is reflected in these balls and use the photo for a Christmas card.
There is the typical round fountain in the gardens of the Palais Royal and there are often modern sculptures placed here and there, different every month or so. This artist did groups of people he called Waiting and he also stuck a few of the upper torsos in the pond.
They lock up the Palais Royal at night by closing these gold topped gates. Pretty elegant place.
