The next time you find yourself at the Musee d'Orsay, don't forget to visit the terrace on the 5th floor. It is located right off the cafe and offers wonderful views of Paris. It's a nice spot to take photos with the Louvre and Sacre Coeur as a backdrop.
When I entered the Grand Palais, the kaleidoscope of colors immediately overwhelmed me. But, this was a good thing. I love color and how it can illuminate a space. The Monumenta Project at the Grand Palais by artist Daniel Buren gave visitors an opportunity to wander through the circles of tinted glass. It also offered a unique perspective of the beautiful Art Nouveau space. I love architecture and what I liked about the installation was the fact that it gave the Grand Palais an opportunity to shine. I have been there for other events and it is never about the space itself. So, it was a pleasure to walk through and explore how a space feels when color is infused with natural light. Daniel Buren's exhibit is just 5 Euros to enter; Avenue Winston-Churchill.

Standing on the circular mirrors made you feel as if you could fall into the glass.
