  1. Sounds like a very sobering exhibit.
    You have such a wonderful memory, Leia. We hope to get to England again in the early spring but haven't made any firm plans yet.

  2. How very interesting. From the 10th century. That's old! And the guillotine suggests that the history has not always been so good for certain people.

    Wonderful shots/reflections!

    Have a great day/evening/night!

  3. Interesting post and shots. I would think the temporary exhibition would be depression but good to tackle those important moral and philisophical topics.

  4. Fascinating exhibitions! That guillotine sure creeps me out. I can't imagine living in the fear of of the law and order of those bygone days. Although, today might not be any better…

  5. That looks like a very interesting exhibit. The reflections are great and the buildings look so wonderfully European.

  6. That guillotine makes me think of my visit to Madame Tussauds in London, there were masks with head gotten choped of in a machine like that, creepy. Great reflections.

  13. Ohhh, I'd love to see the museum! Starting at the 10th century no less!!
    The reflections are exquisite! They have so much complexity!

  14. That blade looks very heavy and very sharp. The last photograph is such a mixture of images that it is difficult to work out which is real and which is the reflection. I love complexity like this. The temporary exhibition is one that I think I would find very interesting.

  15. Great reflection view, but .. What a strange subject for an exhibit! Did you visit it ? It's surely very interesting. But the guillotine brings back to the most scary times of french history.

  16. I would enjoy both exhibitions. The guillotine is fascinating in a horrifying way. I would not want to know about its past, I think.

  17. I do not fly miles to see the world, because I find them here!
    The reflections on the first shot show how tall the buildings are across the street.
    The exhibition, although a bit scary, but its part of history that we read over and over.

    Enjoy the Holidays and Merry Christmas!
