L'éclairage



If I could not have the 7-ton brass and crystal grand chandelier of the Palais Garnier, I would gladly take this lovely lamp with its Venetian-style adornment.


Paris is a pocket of sweet memories now, and it may have been my best trip ever.  
I look forward to sharing stories and many photos.

How clever you are always to find what is worth photographing and to transform it to a piece of art!

Assuming that I could somehow get this back home without breaking it, I coulde NEVER keep it dusted. Got a second place favorite? Maybe a bit simpler?
