Purple is one of my favorite colours. I have many purple flowers in my garden.
At a square in Nice, near the waterfront, I noticed a series of plastic men perched atop high poles and wondered why plastic was used for them. In the evening when we walked by again the men were lit up with colours that kept changing. It was a pretty neat effect.
When traveling what we often see is the outside of buildings. We walked by this impressive building several times, before we decided to go inside and see what it contained.
It was the Army Museum and
We were amazed at what we found inside.
There were rooms filled with armour. There was even armour for children and horses, which must have been hot and heavy to wear.
Napoleon’s Tomb under the dome was beautiful.
An army museum is not something I would venture into normally, especially when there are so many art museums to visit in Paris. This museum was well worth going inside. For more information on the museum visit their web site at: http://www.invalides.org.
This is what happens when you let a little boy play with the Christmas lights.
This is a great shot from my sister’s wedding.
