    • Absolutely Jann! When I saw the zoned off area and the restoration project, my mind started to wander on the details and treasures they’re lucky to work on… Then my mind really took me for a doozy considering the careers I never even considered as a kid!

  2. The Louvre – but maybe it is better to say all of Paris – is worthwhile to return and return to again. Being away 3 hours on train nowadays helps. I love the shots of the statues from very sensitive to firm in colour.
