Both of these pictures were taken from the top floor of the Musée d'Orsay on the south bank of the Seine in Paris using my little hand-held Lumix.
A short story about the kindness of the staff at the Musée d'Orsay
If you want to buy tickets in advance for the Musée d'Orsay you have to pick them up from other locations (don't ask - it's the French way). We went to FNAC at the Gare du Lyon and bought two regular adult tickets (or so we thought). When we turned up at the M 'O the people on the door said they were for after 4.30pm (it was 9.30 am) and besides, we didn't qualify for these concession tickets. We offered to pay the difference but the only way we could do that was to go back to FNAC on the other side of Paris!
Thankfully, the guy on the door decided that best solution was to simply let us in so "Merçi beaucoup" to the guy who let us in - it saved as all the time and energy it would have taken to correct the mistake of the cashier at FNAC.
