Luckily, the gardens are quite big because there were actually far more people there than I have implied.
The koi are numerous and frisky.
The fish pond is just across from the azalea hill.
A new season of lily pads was just beginning to develop.
One last look at the azaleas before I headed for the exit.
But I also had to admire a few individual blooms.
This is the last thing you see before re-entering the museum building.
I need to visit the museum some day without visiting the gardens. The photographs are absolutely fascinating, but I am not in much of a museum mood after being in the gardens. The autochromes are incredible.
It's hard to imagine that colour photography existed before it was possible to capture a sharp image of a flag in the breeze.
Here is Albert Kahn on the balcony of his bank.
The biggest interest of his collection was that he wanted to document life rather than just take pretty pictures of the sights. This is a Parisian bordello.
And this last photo just shows how Parisian trash receptacles used to look.
I need to read back through your whole report again, so please forgive me if you've already mentioned this information. It appears that I can get to the gardens by taking line 10 all the way to its Bologne-Pont de Saint-Cloud end. Is that correct?
And now that I've read through the whole report once again I see your metro photos! Super.
Your photographs are marvelous and the history presented at the beginning does make this report even more interesting. There looks to be an infinite number of photographic opportunities. I certainly plan to add a visit to my list!
