Ready, Aim... Fire!

Well, it was an overcast, cold day...
This was just for pretend!

How funny! It does look like exactly like it is taking aim at the people in the background. And it does look very, very cold.

Nice that those folks over there within firing range can be oblivious to it. Are thpse more weapons lined up in front of the museum?

Except for the very first trip to Paris, I've never been to Les Invalides.

What is this fascination you have with cannons, Genie? Perhaps you want to join the artillery? Je pense que non.

Nonetheless, you're still giving us "bang up" pictures. Which I'm sure give "explosions" of joy to many.

If those tourists get out of line, this big baby will catch their attention!

You get more comments per post than anybody I know. That goes to show that you are good at what you do and people like you. Maybe I need a lesson from you.

In his days in a corporate job, «Louis» was taught it was Ready, FIRE, Aim - and he KNOWS Congress operates that way!

HA! But it certainly does look like they are about to fire on that crowd!

My word identification here is: angst :)

If you've been to les Invalides, did you ever get a chance to visit the small museum inside of Plans et Reliefs ? If not, it is well worth a visit, it is one of the wonders of Paris, which is not too well known as far as I can tell. The museum is several room size models that were built back in the 1700's of key cities around France with amazing attention to detail, down to the windows in every house, but especially the military fortifications. They are works of art. Well worth an hour to admire their splendor, after a trip to Napoleon's tomb...
