Street lamps - Palais Garnier


Street Lamps
Palais Garnier


These unusual street lamps are found in front of the grand Palais Garnier.  
The musical instruments seems fitting for the home of the Paris Opera.


This is my contribution to the 
City Daily Photo Theme Day for August.

These are so beautiful. During our recent trip to Vietnam, we saw the Hanoi Opera House which was built by the French and apparently modelled on the Palais Garnier!
