Sacre Coeur Cathedral and Artist Colony in Montmartre Paris photographed through the d'Orsay Museum Clock --- John Brody Photography - JohnBrody.com

More Info for the Curious - When I saw this scene, I had just walked out of the exhibition room at the d'Orsay museum in Paris which displays over a dozen Vincent van Gogh paintings, including the Bedroom at Arles, Noon Rest, and the beautiful Church at Auvers, one of my favorites (Photos of those works are contained in this favorites gallery). The irony sets in when you learn that just to the left of the tall white building, the Sacre Coeur Basilica, is the artist colony where Vincent van Gogh as well as others like Pablo Picasso, Monet, Pizarro, and many other artists whose works you love. There are many ironies here but the biggest is that I was standing in a museum which was displaying probably a billion dollars worth of the artists' work, yet I was looking through the clock at a place where van Gogh lived as a starving artist daily while he learned his craft so he could paint the paintings hanging right next to me - Kind of mind Boggling...
