Two years ago (Branliy Museum)
Exactly two years ago, on july 19 I was in Paris visiting one of my preferred Museums, the Branli, because of the collections about art from America, Asia, Oceania and Africa
The Museum has a charming café with terrace in the gardens, good place to rest after or before the visit, all people working in it have t-shirts of different color
They are well organized with plenty colorful space, there are also videos showing old civilizations, peoples, dances
Collections are displayed in a very modern and creative way in a colorful building designed by Jean Nouvel that catches your attention just before entering because the Wall Vegetation at the right of the entrance
It’s located in front of the Sena River, just across the Passerelle Debilly that cross the river with its smart iron structure
The museum also has luxurious gardens with great views at the Eiffel Tour, they are free, so you can stroll along them freely as well as to drink or eat at the cafe

Of course, I would find time to comment on an "anniversary" picture from Paris today! :)
I'm not much of a museum goer, but would definitely visit one if there were views to the Eiffel Tower. ;)
My favorite thing about this posting is the last line of your note...your source: memory. lol Awesome!
There are many great moments and attractions to remember about a city like Paris, and sometimes it's just the simple things, like the café here, that can bring back a pleasing recollection. The servers red shirt really jumps off the page and makes for a wonderful, solid centerpiece element in this composition. There are also many interesting details in the background to scan over. Hope to see one of those views as well at some point. *hint hint*
Hope you're having a nice weekend ma chere ami. Be good.
Bises du désert,

Not sure the guy in picture knew he was modeling for you... but result is a nice photo, face expression and all details shown well.

Superb snapshot fro small coffee shop. Excellent focusing and very good light. You have captured this young man from very good viewpoint showing nice face profile.
Very well done.

Hola Maria querida,
I like very much this quiet and suggestive portrait of the handsome young man in his workplace. Your point of view is discreet but your composition is bold with him placed in the middle of the frame, his red shirt providing irresistible graphism. He stands out superbly, overshadowing all the details around him. What I like the most is his pensive look, perhaps you captured a very brief moment of day dreaming, that gives your picture an appealing, intimate atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
PS I uploaded another full moon photo, I didn't totally waste the opportunity of July 12 :)

Muy buena e interesante nota, sobre este museo del cual no conocia ni su exxistencia, este nos sirve de introduccion, para captar el ambiente moderno que nos muestra la cafeteria, con el joven atendiendo la barra, tambien es un buen retrato del mismo, en ese semiperfil.
Muy bien equilibrada la iluminación y muy buena nitidez.
La gama de color esta muy bien.
Te deseo una feliz semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

This is a very charming photo of the waiter at Branly with excellent clarity and eye-catching red.
