A Day of Culture

I was with a friend from the States the other day and we saw not one but two cultural exhibits.

The first was at the Hotel de Ville where an exhibit of photos were on display, from the beginning of photography to the present. All of the photographers belong(ed) to Magnum Organisation.

I love this photo by Henri Cartier-Bresson taken just before the man splashed into the water.

Next we headed over to the Petite Palais. They always have a permanent exhibition here. It’s a beautiful building too, as you can see.

The also had the original art supplies, stool, umbrella, etc. set up. I forgot to get the name of the artist but I remember that he was an impressionist.
