On my way out this morning i stopped to take a picture of this charming 'caisse' in front of city hall. It's the concession stand and ticket booth for the merry go round. Then i hopped on the bus and headed over to the architecture museum. It was a lovely bright day for what was abit of a long bus ride, just because the traffic was bad, but gave lots of time to look out the window at the scenery.
La Cite de L'Architecture et du Patrimoine is one of my favorite museums here, not only because of the collection but because its one of the underdog attractions of the city and hence not swarming with tourists. Looking at the collection of casts of medieval and renaissance architecture was like looking at a catalogue of my current obsessions. The stone drapery, the sense of elegy etc etc.
here's a little slideshow of some of the highlights.....
