Morning

Our apartment in Paris did not boast grand views, but was comfortable and perfect for our visit. Most importantly: there was blue sky most days, and I found these rooftop perspectives quite interesting (same window in both shots).

Jardin du Luxembourg

A wonderful spot – choose your ambience between noisy students or laid-back seniors, all improving the world in their own ways…

Still living off the memories of a great time in Paris.

Reflection in "6 Standing Panes"

Reflection in "6 Standing Panes"

The Centre Pompidou is hosting a retrospective “Panorama” of the work of Gerhard Richter (until September 24). The images shown here are reflections in the piece “6 Standing Panes“. Depending on the light, the position, the exposure, and also the number of people blocking light out, there were numerous different effects – always with Paris in the background.

For more weekend reflections, go to James’ Weekend Reflections site.
