Jardin des Plantes
During the final days of my imagery tour in Paris, I came across Jardin des Plantes by accident. My agenda for this day strictly was to catch the grueling 2 hour bus route from Paris to Chambord France, where upon I would make camera love to Chateau de Chambord. I arrived at the train terminal only to be delivered bad news.
The bus route to did not coincide with the closing time of Chateau de Chambord. Basically, I would have arrived in Chambord too late. So, as I trekked away from the train terminal to find something else to do, I walked past Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, and the blooming botanical garden really caught my eye. I walked through Jardin des Plantes, still not knowing that this was indeed the most popular botanical garden in Paris.
Needless to say, I went crazy with the camera. The naked trees that surrounded the garden added a beautiful, necessary contrast to the scenery!
