We were extremely lucky to be in Paris on La Nuit des Musees. Museums across Europe are open free of charge for one evening each year.
We chose to go to Musee Rodin, the house and gardens of the sculptor. We thought it opened at 6:00 but when we got there at that time we found we were an hour early and we had to stand in line for an hour in the rain.
During that wet hour we turned to each other every ten minutes and wondered, “Why are we doing this?” It is a good thing we stayed because at 7:00 the rain stopped and we entered the magical garden. I found it breathtaking…first for the plants…
By this time in the trip my iPhone had its new power pack case and it was more complicated to use my ollo clip macro lens, so I opted to try the built in ability of the iPhone to do macro shots. I got four inches away from the roses and was quite excited to find such a clarity on the raindrops.
