L'Opéra Garnier (Weekend Reflections # 204)

Paris, France                                               (Palais Garnier - Opéra national de Paris)

 

Looking at the front of the Palais Garnier/the old Paris Opera House, you will see two gilded bronze statues by Charles Alphonse Gumery, L'Harmonie on the left, and La Poesie (Poetry) on the right.

 Last week's reflection was L'Harmonie so this week we have La Poesie on the right side of this photo and reflected in the window on the left.

Congratulations to Malyss for being the first to share the name of the building and the place of the statue! 

Please only link posts that have a photo or photos that contain a visual reflection.  Reflections can be on water,glass,metal or anything else as long as we can see the reflection.If needed, click the link below the header for instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

Quelle harmonie dans cette photo, James ! Tout se répond dedans, le reflet et l'opéra, l'affichage pu "paris haute couture" comme un sous titre du hasard... Et puis les photo de nuit, c'est toujours tellement beau... Bravo !

Malyss said...

Ta photo rétablit une parfaite symétrie, et j'aime bien quand les choses sont bien rangées! :o)
Belle atmosphère nocture..

A splendid photo!
Great reflections!

Stunning!! I'm amazed at how perfectly lined up the reflection is - just fantastic. I showed my husband last week's reflection in the puddle, and it took me a while to get him to believe it was actually a reflection - it was so crisp! Also...you're lucky the advertisement wasn't R rated...and that it said Paris!
