Opera Garnier



I of course already (on my previous blog) posted about Opera Garnier. However, being in the entrance hall the other day, I could not resist against taking some more shots of this almost “overdecorated” place.


(Another preprogrammed post, while I’m away in the south, looking for sun.)

Yes, it is over the top but still impressive to see!

Il est assez rare de désigner un monument par le nom de son architecte. A part l'opéra de Paris et la Tour Eiffel, je n'en connais pas d'autres. D'ailleurs, l'autre opéra parisien est dénommé "Bastille", mais c'est peut-être parce que le nom de son architecte (Ott)prêterait à confusion. Opéra Ott, cela ne fait pas très sérieux.

A beautiful place, Peter. Saw you were with Jilly at Menton place too.

Overdecorated, yes -- but that's exactly what makes it so stunning!

At first glance I thought there was water mirroring the upper part of the second photo!

In Paris it's all over the top! I'll get in this place one day I hope.
