On our 16th day in Paris, we visited the amazing Opera Garnier. This Grand Foyer was designed with the thought that during intermission, the “performance” of life goes on… so why not provide a suitable stage to showcase the performance?
Joan and I liked the Opera Garnier better than Chateau Versailles — which was great, but overcrowded (and hot on the day we went). The Opera Garnier, though newer, is amazingly opulent, and still serves as a performance hall (mainly for ballet).
I also created an interactive panorama of the hall with Photosynth and my iPhone. Check it out!
This is my photo for Day 186 of Project 365.
