    I love the photo of the tourists in silhouette behind the clock. Also, the photo of the people taking the photo of the Mona Lisa. Why does everyone have to take the same picture, anyway?

    Thanks, Jon! Yeah, the photo of the people taking photos of the Mona Lisa turned out better, I thought, than my photo of the Mona Lisa itself. (Herself?) I did take that photo, though. I suppose we are all compelled by the idea of “should.” One should see the Mona Lisa, and one should have proof of it.

    When I went to Paris, I stayed with a French friend, and when she took me to the Louvre, she was like, “I suppose you want to see the Mona Lisa. The big star of the Louvre! Well, there she is.” Then she waved her hand disinterestedly in the direction of the crowd (much like in your photo) and wandered away while, yes, I went and looked at the big star.

    That’s all I think about when I see that painting. ;)

    As an aside, I never understand why people take photos of famous paintings? Why not just get a print or a postcard or download a perfect, unobstructed photo from the internet?

    Beautiful photos, Kristan. Looks like February centered on Paris and Riley. Sounds like a good month to me.

    I dunno, I think taking your own photo is more personal, even if (or maybe because?) it is imperfect. That said, I don’t take a lot of photos in museums, because it’s hard to capture art with that extra degree of removal.

    Yup, “Paris and Riley” about sums it up, hahaha.

    These photos are all so fantastic! They always make me want to play with my camera more and try Instagram. But ah, one more thing I don’t have time for right now!
