Day 279: Something Beautiful—A Graphic Moment in the Cafe Campana

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

September 10•2013. Paris. More from our day at the Musee d’Orsay. Photos are not allowed in the museum—but those of you who know me know I am not typically a “rule” kind of girl. With that context, I have already shared shots of the magnificent clock inside the old rail station and the study for the Statue of Liberty.

imageIn the spirit of finding casual moments in famous places, I share a beautiful moment of chance design and spectacular view. This is what we saw over quiche in the Cafe Campana

inside the Musee d’Orsay. The cafe looks through a large transparent clock. In the distance, the unmistakable dome of the Sacre Coeur. As a composition, it is beautiful to me in many ways—as a point in time, a great graphic silhouette, and a monumental context.
