paris 2016 part 2 is a selection of the best pics i took during my longest day spent out in the city.
the cover photo is a pic of the new frank gehry building of the fondation louis vuitton. i will not get into detail because i have a dedicated post coming up.
i started my day walking towards montparnasse, taking a vague route for an exact destination: fondation cartier.
this is the very beautiful parc montsouris, in the 14eme arrondissement.
this is the entrance to the fondation cartier. i’m pretty sure the vertical garden is by patric blanc.
this is the back garden.
and this is the actual show by japanese photographer, daido moriyama. daido tokyo closes on june the 5th, this sunday, so you can still go and see it if you’re in town.
the montparnasse tower allows great views of the city.
this is le dome des invalides. inside, you will find the tomb of napoleon.
i passed under the eiffel tower so i couldn’t miss taking a pic or two.
a tuk-tuk driver is sharing his lunch with a murder of crows. cute!
this is another vertical garden by m. blanc. this time, it’s the facade of the musée du quai branly.
guess what? more incoming rain.
across the street from palais de tokyo, le musée galliera.
and this is the fondation louis vuitton.
and this is the beautiful parc behind the building.
the shuttle pick up place is right off l’etoile so i started walking towards la bastille.
le centre pompidou is a favourite of mine but this time around i tried to stay away from the crowds.
when i reached la bastille i realized it was already 9 pm. i decided that walking for another 1-2 hours was out of the question and i took the metro home.
stay tuned for the final paris post!
