The Rodin Museum

Our first official tourist stop was at the Musée Rodin. Here is a frontal shot of his arguably most famous work Le Penseur.

We got in free to the museum (this is in a large garden in front of the actual museum building) due to an impending strike by Paris' civil servants, though we didn't know it at the time.

Since I've only seen pictures of it from the front, I thought I'd get a picture of the back of the statue.

This isn't the only well-known artifact in Paris that I did this with. I think it adds an extra dimension to them (ha!) and actually shows that they're real things, not just pretty pictures on a postcard.

The Gates of Hell

Where does it lead to? An Organic Chemistry II final exam with my name on it.

Here's a detail of the left side of The Gates. Notice the little guy wedged in the corner on the left and people in various states of writhing.
