Dreaming of France -- Musee d'Orsay

Here's a new weekly France meme. Please join in. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to my blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it
Maybe we can all satisfy our yearnings for France, until we get there again.
You aren't supposed to take pictures inside the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. It was a gorgeous train station that now houses many Impressionist paintings.
Here's a shot from the top balcony across the length of the museum.
 And then by turning around and taking a picture from inside the clock, here's a shot of the Seine and all of Paris with a faraway look at Sacre Coeur up on the hill. I liked the clock in part of the foreground.

I don't know why museums ban nonflash photography. It's crazy. We went to the Musee d'Orsay last time. I can't believe I didn't see the clock view though.... Another excuse to go back.

Musee d'Orsay is one of my favorite museums. I visited it just a few years ago, memories still fresh. I'll keep this in mind... Dreaming of France on Mondays. Thanks for hosting.

I have some photos before they outlawed them. If the Louvre allows photography, then every museum in Paris should!

Great shot!
