Paris : Fiction and Images, a New Series of Each
Pictured Left : New – Slumming in Paris, Part One, Arthur & Gricinda.
A fun novella. A young couple with a little time before their two children and the children’s four young cousins all arrive to join them in Paris (Parts Two & Three).
And yes, the characters are all from Texas, just like me.
The images in this series of posts of Paris photos, are a record of the visual experience that provides part of the inspiration for my series of Paris based family novels.
“the intent of this blog is to incrementally build a body of thought that works toward integrating various topics, yoga, fitness, and the arts – it’s a process…”

Enlargement of Images
Most of these images, when clicked on, should be visible larger in a separate window.
Because code messes up, etc, I can’t guarantee it, but give it a try if an image appeals to you. Thanks!
My previous pics post explained why there were no Day 8 pictures, and here I am again, none for Day 10!
Essentially, we must’ve stayed in, ’cause when we did go out, for more than a coffee etc, I took pictures, of course
There were a few rough weather days, and extra tired days, where we just enjoyed sleeping, eating, and maybe going out only for groceries or a snack.
It was an invaluable benefit of staying in Paris more than a few days, having time to take time.
Below, the first of two posts on our trip to the Musee d’Orsay.
Clicking on these images should open a larger image.
I could see there was more than one clock from the outside, but something about being “on the inside”, made it unavoidably clear
Besides a clock that’s kinda bolted up to the inside wall of the inside front (shown in the next post, Day 10, 2 of 2), the first of the giant clocks Sheila and I came across, was in the cafe -
Talk about ambiance!
When Sheila and I got to the museum that morning, the cafe was already beginning to fill.
“a dream-like aquatic environment, directly inspired by Emile Gallé, and a tribute to Art Nouveau…”
the cafe, The Café Campana, is a treat to see.
Unfortunately, we made the mistake of walking the Impressionist galleries nearby first, before eating, and by the time we returned to snack, the line was long.
So if you go there, and you sense you can get a table, take it!
At the other end of the floor, filled with impressionist paintings, and fronting the river length wise, is the old station’s other clock.
As seen above and below, crowds, and opportunities to be alone around the museum’s clocks, fluctuate like a breezy day in May.
Through the glass, one can see Paris.
Reminder: You can click the image, and it should appear enlarged in a new window or tab.
If you look carefully through the glass, among many things, at about knee level of the gentleman by the clock (looks very Parisian huh?), you can see the green of the River Seine. Nice.
Next Post: Day 11, 2 of 2, Images of the outside, seen from the inside of the Musee d’Orsay.
English Language Places We Liked in Paris
And a special gracias to all the French, German, Italian, Swedish, Venezuelan, and Russian folk we met in Paris who knew English and helped us.
It is difficult for me to express how happy it makes me to be able to review, and post, these images of our trip to Paris late last year (2012).
And I’m not sure I fully understand why, though I have lots of fleeting theories of course. Many of which I’m finding a way to fictionalize in my “Slumming in Paris” series.
But either way, I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
Thank you much, sincerely,
namaste´- con dios – god be with you
