They look nice, thanks for posting.

As a teacher of mine said, the Pompidou seems to be an art installation but in a larger scale.

I am old enough to remember seeing the Stravinsky fountain when it was relatively new. It remains one of my favorite locations in Paris.

No, we're only half way.... We arrived saturday at noon and left Paris on monday in the early afternoon. Pompidou was at sunday afternoon.
I always travel with my wife and little son, so we're a bit slow sometimes...

And the best is yet to come....

I really like number 149 with all the domes and other towers sticking out of the forest of roofs. Bravo!

Oh, and thumbs up for your Brussels photographs.
