    How interesting! A recycle shop in Galeries Lafayette! Let’s call it an up-cycle shop! Lovely photos of the dome. I love that view!

    What a fun day! And it proves that there is always something to discover in Paris!

    I couldn’t resist scanning the QR code that is part of one of your subway figure photos. It links to a webpage that says “With Les Secrets de l’Opera, a visual and audio installation, the RATP is pleased to take you onto a journey through the world of the craftsmen, technicians, and artists of this prestigious institution that gave the station its name.” When I clicked the link, I only got the audio of the opera music, so perhaps the “visual” portion were the figure drawings in the station.

      How interesting! I almost couldn’t take the photo because my phone was trying to read the QR code!

    I did indeed enjoy the post today. Food, fashion, beautiful surroundings and a selfie of you two made for an interesting and enjoyable read.

    Your “looking down” shots are like peering into a huge dollhouse. Fun!

    I’d noticed that fashion (on the people in the streets) was no longer the thing. Sad to see it go, and yet, comfortable is good.

    Love the glass and the dome, and, always, yourwritten observations.
