Lunch at Chateau Rodin

I had been hiking around Paris with way too much equipment for several hours. Whenever, I’m in photo-gatherin’ mode, I am fairly tireless. I go from spot to spot like a Navy SEAL… but this day, I actually planned to have lunch at Chateau Rodin, the famous estate of the great French sculptor.

I had some food in my backpack that I had picked up at a small store a few hours before… a fresh baguette, a selection of cheeses, some fruit, and few truffles for dessert. I sat down at the edge of the fountain with my tripod up, aimed, and ready to go. I relaxed for a bit, listened to some Gotan Project on my iPod, and waited for the clouds to get just right.

I backtracked through your pictures that I had I missed, loved them all. So sorry about the Smithsonian restrictions, and Oprah isn’t worth your time even thinking about!! Congrats on another great picture!!

    Funny isn’t it Trey, how you are right in the center of this Incredible City, yet here this garden and home is there to enjoy like you were out in the country… I never got the chance to walk around the grounds, but it is truly a wonderful place to be… Tres Parisian! Love the way you laid out the shot of this beautiful place to share with everyone… Did you scare off the Tourists or just get lucky… haha!haha! it truly is a lovely neighborhood as well. I used to love walking around and just looking at everything in the morning. by the way did you go to the “St.Germain du pres” Church it isn’t far away, it is truly amazing looking at this 12th century church there… Ah Paris in Spring…
