He Statue

He Statue

I did definitely take this photograph but I can not take credit for the original craftsmanship or integral beauty and perfection of this marble statue. I found it in the Musée d’Orsay which is found in Paris, France. 

It is exquisite in its detail but I wanted to add some effects to it and so I did. It is so well put together that it looks as if a real male in the nude is sitting there. It is called “Despair” or “Le Désespoir” and was created in 1869 by Jean-Joseph Perraud. Someone could look at this and think this is a picture for the year of 2020 but I do not see “Despair,” but see a man reposing and reflecting upon life that this year has offered us and now hoping for a better future that 2021 and onwards will bring forward for humankind. 

According to Wikipedia, “The Musée d’Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the Left Bank of the Seine. It is housed in the former Gare d’Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography.”

Pompe à Eau

Mikawoz Pompe à Eau

Pompe à Eau

While travelling in France, we stayed with friends in the French countryside just outside of Paris. It was a beautiful cottage home. I enjoyed wandering the grounds exploring the gardens and photographing this water pomp or Pompe à Eau.

I have put a sepia colour to indicate that it is from an older time and generation.

Curvature

What can I say? I love the curvature of the earth. It is fascinating the way you can see it from so high up. Yes! The Earth is round. Here live the humans who have built a concrete jungle. Amidst the greenery, there is water but on this river, live so many people working and travelling up and down its path. There is a history and present story to be told in this photo.

It is a view of Paris and the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower.
