Van Gogh exhibition in France and other beautiful pics!
Saturday, June 22, 2019
One of my most favorite parts of my trip to France was the Van Gogh, Starry Night
Created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi - Renato Gatto - Massimiliano Siccardi - with the musical collaboration of Luca Longobardi.
It was simply amazing and at one point, I had goosebumps as I stood watching the pictures that he had painted rotate throughout the building and the music they chose to go along with it. It was shown in a huge old building that used to be a foundry and the way it was presented was outstanding. Here are just a few examples of the show. If you get the chance to see it before it leaves in December, I highly recommend it!
this particular pic was in a room of all mirrors and it was just breath-taking!
This truly doesn't show the true beauty of this exhibit!
And now for a few more pics of Paris!
an old abbey that is still standing
I love all the poppies you find everywhere in France!
This was a dessert they set on fire and they flip it in front of you to cook.
street musicians are always playing something
Beloved Notre Dame, still standing after the horrible blaze!
I will end here for this blog, I hope you enjoyed my tour of a beautiful trip!
I am amazed that 7 years ago yesterday I found spark people and joined. It was after a trip to France that I came back and was at my highest weight and I was searching for a quick fix, an appetite suppressant and instead, I found my spark, and spark people!
Thank you for being part of my journey. I missed all of you while I was gone on vacation as the settings in France are hard to see my page and the comments on pics as well.
Have a lovely weekend and keep on spreading your spark! You are all absolutely wonderful!
Wow! Like I commented before the historical part of France/Europe is what appeals to me most. Very beautiful how they did the painting exhibit of Van Gogh- awesome painter! You should frame that pic of you in the poppies! Really good! Glad you found SP and are still here spreading your spark! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog with encouragement! Much appreciated! Happy 211 days ago
Holly, the pictures are beautiful. I so enjoy taking the photo journey of your travels of France. So glad that Notre Dame is still standing after the fire there this year. I know the French people are thrilled some it made it through the fire. They plan to reconstruct the burned out parts from what I saw on TV. 212 days ago
The Van Gogh Exhibition must have been incredible in person because the photos were fantastic. And then the flowers and Paris! Beautiful! What a wonderful vacation. Thanks for sharing it with us. 212 days ago
Thank you for sharing your trip with me. It allowed me the luxury of going to a country that I have never been before and I am not certain if I will be able to see it. The trip was fantastic for me and I know doubly so for you as you were there in person!!!
Again, thank you for sharing such a beautiful time with me and including me on your trip.
Beautiful! Beautiful!! Beautiful!! Wonderful blog holly! Thank you for taking us on your trip to France! I am so happy you had an amazing time! (Would you please put me in your suitcase on your next vacation) I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Hugs and love, xoxo 212 days ago
Looks like an incredible exhibit and wonderful experience.
I recently purchased a leather journal with Van Gogh's Starry Night on its cover. The office of the Physics Department at my graduate institution had a large replica of Van Gogh's Starry Night adorning it's wall. I really like that particular piece of work too.
Thanks for sharing the photos and giving us a glimpse into your trip. 212 days ago
Amazing Holly, thanks for taking me along with you.
AND I too value you as a kind and supportive friend. I found SP when looking for a weight loss club and not wanting to join Weight Watchers. SP was FREE and seemed easy to navigate, that was Dec 2007, I was only able to get serious about losing weight following my operation in 2008 and it took just 3 months to ditch 33 pounds, I;ve been maintaining ever since and enjoying the company of friends like you. 212 days ago
Oh, my...how gorgeous! I have been to Paris in April several times and so enjoy the beauty of it all. Your photos are amazing. Fine looking man you got there! You make a beautiful couple. I read about that Van Gogh exhibit and only hope they create a traveling version of it. I miss our friend Claire and hope she is well. 212 days ago
Beautiful beyond words. Thank you for sharing you marvellous journey and for reminding me that by recommitting my life to a healthy lifestyle I can truly and joyfully experience what is to come. Have a blessed day. 212 days ago
Oh, the joys of "being there"! Thanks again for sharing. And what a great memory of where / when / under what circumstances you found "the spark"... and have kept it burning, ever since! 212 days ago
