One of the last things on our to-do list in Paris was a visit to the Rodin Museum. It was a decision we did not regret!
In the following days I will show some of the treasures of this fabulous institution ...

I like mirror/window/water reflections a lot. Reflections are a level of reality, to the metaphysical mind, what we are in truth living in. And this is fun as the sculpture appears to be pointing with almost amusement at the people who have clothes on.

@Joyce: Thanks, Joyce! I like your perceptive comment!!!

Rick from Toronto, Canada

A warm light infuses this scene. Excellent and I look forward to more... in the meantime I can re-watch my copy of Camille Claudel ;-)

@Rick: Thanks, Rick! Rodin was a great sculptor, no doubt, but the way he treated Camille Claudel was not very nice at all ... :-(

We seem to have missed each other for a while. Just looked back over a series of excellent architectural ohotos here and a wonderful mood to this gallery interior shot here

@grouser: I was away skiing for a week, with limited access to computers, that's why! But now I'm back!!! ;-)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

An interesting PoV through the mirror which also highlights another mirror!! It adds nice dimension and depth by providing multiple views. Looking forward to this series!

@Steven: Thanks, Steven. I hope you won't be disappointed!

Denny Jump from Bellevue, WA, United States

I LOVE your chosen concept here, Franz! The "looking in the mirror while looking through the glass" feeling is amazing and really adds even more dreaminess and beauty to this already beautiful museum..I LOVE this one ;-)

@Denny Jump: Thank you, Denny, much appreciated!

Great image that combines the sculptures, people and reflections. I am looking forward to your photos from this museum. We have not visited it in the past.

Great framing of the people among the statues.
