Day 3 - Food for the tummy and food for the eye

After our brush with religious grandeur, we hopped the Metro to St. Germain de Pres where we had a lovely simple lunch at Les Deux Magots.

Famed for patronage by literary and artistic greats such as Jean Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Hemingway, Camus, Picasso, Joyce and Brecht, it seemed an appropriate place for this pair. 

It was here that we got the bright idea to walk through the Luxembourg Gardens rather than take transit. What a great decision. We passed the the church of St. Sulpician, made famous in the Da Vinci Code. 

As well as the environmental posters in a previous post, we lucked into a photography exhibit focused on recycled materials, posed in highly dramatic and artistic arrangements. 

 The photographer, Alain Fouray, was there and I was able to tell him how much we enjoyed his work. 

Very meaningful and beautiful at the same time. Here's a sampling
