It’s that famous chandelier at the Paris Opera that the phantom managed to send crashing to the stage.
At the top of the Opera in Paris sits this mighty golden statue.
It’s that famous lily pond again in Monet’s garden in Giverny and once more it’s impossible to get a photo without the hordes of tourists, but I’m also one of them I guess.
Unfortunately there are a few people standing on the bridge which spoils it somewhat, but it is virtually impossible to get a snap without any imposters, as there is a steady stream of visitors filing over the bridge. Personally I think they should block off the bridge for ten minutes every hour to allow unadulterated photos of this magic scene.
Here is a photo I took in the very same pond in Monet’s garden in Giverny earlier this year.
