IMG_0094-XLYou go to Paris and you want to go to the Louvre.  Why?  Because that’s what tourists do in Paris and besides you can spend a couple days just in the Louvre alone just to see everything.  But people go to the Louvre to see Mona.  Why not?  I did.  And you then have the pleasure and experience of being behind all of the other tourists who want to see her as well.  And there’s push and shoving and elbowing and smelly people and it’s just a mess.  And you finally make your way to the front and you’re disappointed because she’s behind glass and there’s few options for not having light reflection glare on the glass in your pic.  I know.  I have it in mine.  You end up disappointed.  You got to see her and she was amazing and all that; but you’re disappointed because of the quality of the pic and all of the crap that you had to go thru just to get a crappy picture of Mona.

No.  The picture to take in the Louvre is not one with Mona in it.  Nope, nope, nope.  The picture to take is a picture of all of the other fools trying to take a picture of the Mona Lisa.  That I have a much better and more pleasant memory of.  And I loved the questions ..

“Where is she?  Where is she?”

“Behind you.”

“Ohhhhhhhh …”
