Another photo fascination/obsession I have is glass porticos on the Haussmannian buildings throughout Paris. They usually have frosted glass and greatly detailed wrought ironwork. I took them at interesting angles and sometimes they look like they are floating in the sky. Question: Are they porticos or awnings?
Thank you again my resourceful readers for sending the names of the artists for the Café Tabletops #6 and 7: Renoir- The End of Lunch, and Van Gogh -Agostina Segatori Sitting in the Cafe du Tambourin.
I found a few other tabletops in my archives (Below the portico photos). I believe they are also Alfonse Mucha, but please correct me if I am wrong.
