random stuff

This is in a comic store near our house. I didn't know Buster Brown was anything but a shoe store...
Eric looking at his favorite, Gaston.
Street art.
The little store where I work.

Pont des Arts

I like the actor Romain Duris in the front there, and Eric likes Charlotte Gainsbourg in the back. The movie's not supposed to be so great though, I read. I just like the poster.
Nice cat poster in the metro.

Musee Bourdelle

I read an autobiography of Isadora Duncan earlier this year and was really interested in her because she was completely nutz. So when this exhibit came out I was excited to see it. The museum was nice, the exhibit was okay. I didn't take any photos inside because I wasn't sure I was allowed. They didn't have many things of hers actually, and there's only very brief film footage of her that I'd already seen on the internet, so most of it was just film of other people dancing like her and a lot of photos.

There were a lot of sculptures outside in the garden, done by the artist Bourdelle who used to live there.

chickens with feathers!

They are just sitting there in the boucherie cases right now, dead and unplucked. Festive!!!

City Hall is pretty at night

Christmas window displays!!!

All of the big department stores here have wonderful displays for the holidays, and we went and saw the biggest ones today.
It was a bit hard to get good photos what with all the people and the glare and everything, but I tried.

Vintage Dior.

Eric looking at the Chanel swan.
Russian dolls. They were moving and it was cool.
Eric said that is Lenin's head on the table.

Lots of stuffed real animals involved.

Still with the Russian theme here. These dolls were dancing and their house was made of candy and cookies. There is a little walkway higher up in the front for kids to stand on and watch.
She fell down and the peacock's going to get her.
This one was very popular, it's a little rock band and they were all jumping around and singing. Really awesome.
Then their friends were doing a Russian dance in circle on the other side.

Bad picture but it's a glittery fish skeleton.
That sign is advertising the exhibit at the museum where Eric works.
We had lunch in a really French old fashioned type place.
The bar was old and tall.
I think this is a really handsome one of Eric.

Us waiting for the bus with perfume girl behind us.
That ad with the wine glass back there is something. We couldn't see far enough to see what it was for.
The bus that we took home. It's the same one I take to work. There's another ad for Eric's museum on the front. Voila!
