Palais Garnier - XIII


Palais Garnier


On every visit to this Beaux-Arts opera house one can make new discoveries.  
Just look at the art and detail applied to the lamps surrounding this building.


I think that the Phantom would be pleased 
to see the repeating patterns of music symbols.

Hmm, glad you mentioned the music thing. All I saw at first was something that might have been found in a rail yard. ;-)

One of my favorite spots in Paris. When music lover Rick saw this, I think he fell in love with everything about it. But mostly how they honor the music in all the details. Nice photo, Genie.
