Upside down!


France is kinda upside down at the moment... We have just been humiliated by the Argentinian rugby team, Paris suffered two terrible days of strikes and our President makes the news all over the world after he announced his divorce. How about a little visit to the museum - any museum, even Orsay where Claude Monet's "Pont d'Argenteuil" was recently vandalized!? Even in this photo the lights are turned upside down.

  2. That would be - so Australians can turn on the lights.
    We can do many things upside-down as you will see in August !
    Très amusant.

  3. The vandalism of Monet's painting is appalling - as are some of the responses to the Guardian Unlimited's willfully provocative questions: (a) Is the destruction of art ever justified? (b) Can the results be perceived as art?

    Those who are interested may judge for themselves:

  4. Lights up-side down? Not bad, pretty funny shot! Meanwhile, we, in San Francisco, are going for lights out tomorrow night.

  6. Sympathy for the loss against Argentina, Eric. This is a great photo with the different textures and unusual vantage point all topsy-turvy. lol.

  8. Hi Eric, great catch & commentary! Hope you are doing well. Sounds like a crazy time in the city of lights at the moment. Is it possible that you haven't been "tagged" yet?! Hard to believe...but I've "tagged" you now to post 8 things about yourself. Sorry! Come to San Diego to read my 8 things and find out "the rules"...which were made to be broken! ;)
