Museum of Natural History - a real treat and I really like this 19th century museum - extremely interesting and a few random Paris pictures as well

Cool shots in the museum looks like you had nice even light. I love museums, I could spend 200 Gigs in one:smile:

It is amazing they can dedicate so much space for skeletons?

Neat reflections in the cycle mirrors, what was the subject?

Great stuff, looks like to had the museum to yourself!

Thank you Ted, there was a lot of people actually - just that I am patient and often wait for the people to move out of my frame before pressing the shutter.

Thank you - they have two floors of skeletons - that was how museums where built in the 19th century with a lot of hands on displays and collections - not elaborate thematic displays - I actually like this type of museum more than any other - really impressive and instructive.

This reflections in the mirrors were just a drug store sign which was in the background - I seem to have started a collection of motorcycle pictures captured in this manner... for some reason. :rolleyes:

Another thread in a series of very good Paris shots. Enjoy looking at them.
Thank you :smile:

beyond the museum content... you never show us enough shots of your S.O., and the reason for your prolonged parisian stay

she is beautiful
you are both lucky to have each other

Thank you Greg, about my S.O. I show a lot of pictures of her, she is actually in most of my threads from Paris:

One word to sum up NikonCafe: Community on the second page for this one...
Paris 2008 it is a start
More from Paris
24-70/2.8 does Paris
70-200/2.8 does Paris
35/1.4 AI-S does Paris

:biggrin: I was actually hoping someone would catch up to it - Frits probably did as he met her a couple of times :wink: I just never point it out that she is my girlfriend - I thought she really looked great today - specially that she stole my red shirt for the day :rolleyes: Nah... She just looked happier than usual today - we do spend a lot of time together - yesterday and today she came to museums with me. Today she asked me if I wanted her to come, I asked her in return if she wanted to come... She got ready real fast and we took off - we had a good afternoon - I love my time with her.

Dude, the first one is really magical. Really great contrast, color and detail used to tell a magnificent story.

It reminds me of the warehouse that stores the Ark of the Covenant in two of the Indian Jones movies.

Interesting juxtaposition of your girlfriend and the subject matter of the background. She still likes you? :biggrin:
