It's not just the Hausmann period pillars of architecture that will draw one in across Paris. Examples of form and innovation like the Institut du Monde Arabe (pictured here) are as much a pleasure to ponder as the Palais Royale or a painting at the Louvre. I love the symmetry of this image and the fact that it's not the Paris we typically see, outside of Paris.

Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - B Wanergard - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!

  1. Nice to see my picture on your blog.

    The short story of the making, me and a Pal was on a europe trip, we started with 5 days in paris, continued to Lausanne and ended up in Milan and London. The weather was great to travel in europe. It was the first time I had the time to stop by in Paris. I just been there for short breaks in my youth and never really had time to do the "tourist" things.

    The Institut du Monde Arabe was just a passing by thing on the way along Saine. But I really liked the Architecture and unusal forms of the buildigs... This picture was one out of two. The other one is this:

    Best Regards
    Bengt A Wänergård,

  2. Again, wonderful image. Thanks for posting the story behind the picture!
