Galeries Lafayette

Among Paris' many landmarks are two of its majestic old department stores, Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. For the last several weeks, Galeries Lafayette/Haussman had a promotion going on...Funarama, turning the place into a bit of a playground...the major features of which were a giant net stretched out below the famous cupola, and a walkway, both high above the bottom floor. Rebecca and Penelope did the net before we got to Paris, but I wanted to see it all, especially the famous cupola, a favorite.
Cupola, net, and walkway

Rebecca and I on the walkway

Looking up into the cupola; the whole edifice an art nouveau wonderland



















And down onto the net (no jumping up and down)

A bit of perspective


Quite a different view of it all
