THE OUTSIDE OF THE OPERA GARNIER
The Grand Staircase above and one of the parlours below.
The true show was not what was provided on stage but the display from the upper crust... seeing the who's who, fashions and styles. Scandalous!
I fell in love with all the ceilings in this place..... some of the best artwork can be seen at the ceiling level on much of Paris buildings. Oh my crocked aching neck at the end of my stay at the Opera.
