Photographer's Note

In Paris, in September 2005, one of the main cultural event was the re-opening of the Grand Palais, during 2 weeks.

The Grand Palais was built between 1897 and 1900 and opened for the 1900 Universal Exhibition. It is supposed to be one of the most impressive buildings in Paris. This is a place for exhibitions and cultural events.

In 1993, there was a small accident (a clinch falled from the ceiling) and the building got closed. The structure was too old and it got repaired. Reparations will actually finished in 2007 but it was possible to visit the inside. THE EVENT !
The first thing I saw was a "new" Quadridge ("Harmony defeating Discord"), which is located at one angle of the building, close to the Seine River. A good beginning !!

Concerning the frame, I hesitated a lot about the flag. Inside or outside the pic ? You tell me...
