Another carousel with photos I took in Paris.
There are a few bicycles in there, so that’s why it’s called Parousel Cycles.
The 5 panels are, from the outside in:
- Escalator at the Centre Beaubourg (Pompidou), Eiffel Tower details, Palais Royal – those lovely shiny balls on the black and white ground
- Bicycles in the Tuileries (or perhaps Les Jardins de Luxembourg?), the Musee d’Orsay, and Pizza Hut delivery cycles parked near the Gare de Lyon
- Passage Choiseul and Galerie Vivienne just around the corner from Hotel Stendhal where we stayed, and a Clock from Rouen (it isn’t Paris, but it was just right for this piece!
- The Hotel window at the Hotel Stendhal near Place Vendome in Paris, where we stayed during a heat wave (and were so happy for the air conditioning), the Tuileries (or possibly Place Royale?), Bicycle next to a bookstore, Galerie Vivienne
- Gargoyles from Notre Dame, and then the next two layers are stained glass from the Sainte Chapelle.
What I learnt from this piece
- Windows and roofs make for great carousel outer layers.
- There needs to be a decent gap between the the inner and second layers.
- Lighter coloured inner layers work best
- RSI results from cutting too much!
