Ever since I was a young girl I was drawing; art has always been my very first love. Paris was filled with life, color or something outrageously beautiful and perfect everywhere I turned.
(The unbelievable Paris Opera has ceiling art created by the modernist painter Marc Chagall. I was in awe of my surroundings as I watched the ballet perform)
(Every turn was accompanied by magical costumes once worn in past performances)
(The Tuileries Gardens outside of the Louvre holds amazing statues, pictures cannot do them justice)
(One of my favorite rooms in the Palace of Versailles held a hall full of statues. The way the light peeked in cast amazing shadows)
There were also bits of darkness as the city has a history of death and disease which ultimately will inspire as a result. Take a look at what I mean.
(The Catacombs of Paris holds 6 million skeletons delicately placed throughout since the late 1700’s. While this is not technically art it is very amazing to look at )
(There are so many interesting things to look at but I tried my very best to not forget that this was a cemetery and these bones belonged to people alive over 200 years ago. It is a testament to how preserved France’s history is)
France has art all around, from the canal to the sky, there is always something to see and admire.

Chelsea had the most amazing time in Paris and her pictures are BEAUTIFUL!
Damn I wanted to go to see the bones so bad when I was there! Just so many things to do though, and I was only there for a week. Plus I was feeling a little under the weather the last day we were there. =( Great pics!
It was pretty cool! We had to wait in line for an hour in the freezing cold but it was worth it, super spooky! Next time you go, see the bones!!
Amazing photos pictures! I am sure that you will be sharing more, and we can’t wait to see!
