WW - The Kiss


Taken at the Rodin Museum, Paris (I'm just back from a most enjoyable stay in Paris with more culture than you can shake a stick at and the best possible company). This week's belated (for me anyway!) Wordless Wednesday.

Rodin could capture passion like nobody. We saw his work at the Wadsworth Atheneum two years ago. Three times because we couldn't get enough. Thanks for reminding me of the beauty of his work.

Nice shot, brings back a memory of my dad getting a miniature sculpture of Rodin's Kiss for my mother on their anniversary. As a teenager I was so embarrassed by that! My parents? Kissing? Or more? Augh! LOL

Ooh, I'm quite envious! Would love a trip to Paris. And doesn't she just have the largest feet.

We stood in the presence of "The Kiss" a few years back in Paris...it was like being in church!

Welcome back - I thought you were in Ireland with your folks.
If I were one of the pluted blotocrats I would collect Rodin bronzes - he is a hero of art.

Something that's definitely not gay in ol gay Paree!!!!!

Welcome back. :) It's so weird that I keep hearing a bunch of songs on XM that you would approve of. It kept me company during your blog absence. Sparks, Soft Boys, Robyn, Hoodoo Gurus, Plastic Bertrands....

Great Rodin sculpture. I'm excited because the state museum near me has received a large donation of Rodin's and they are building a special addition to house them. Glad you had a good vacation in Paris.

Great photo.
I did get to see tons of art and museums while I was in Paris, but I know there is a lot more. I need to go back one of these days.

Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a holiday!

Happy WW!!

What a fun trip! I've never had a desire to see Paris, but the art would be fun.

CherryPie said...

I bet you had a great time there, there is so much to see :-)

Paris is beautiful, but it doesn't hold a candle to Prague.

Nunyaa said...

Glad you enjoyed your time there, didn't you see me waving to you from the Eiffel Tower ? lol...kidding.

BNS said...

Oh poor you. Paris, eh? I love Rodin and although I haven't been to the museum in Paris I have been to the fabulous Rodin museum in Philadelphia.

Thanks everyone. I had a wonderful time. Sorry I haven't been visiting this WW. I came back with a vile cold. Normal service will resume next week!

CherryPie said...

My conference week gave me a vile cold too!

Sean Jeating said...

Late, Jams, I know. Still: Lovely to read you had a great time in France.
By the way, did the not-wife and you re-enact the scene? :)

jams o donnell said...

I did indeed Sean. The not-wife was delighted with my presents. Chocs and lingerie!
