The photo above is from the wall of a couscous restaurant, on our penultimate day in Paris. It has my favorite 8 pointed star.
Heres another. Same star, different pattern, from the same restaurant.
This was part of the sidewalk. I stopped to take a photo of the chocolate store across the street. I looked down at my feet, and there was this lovely pattern.
Here’s the chocolate store I was taking a photo of.
I saw this in the Musee d’Orsay. It was an example of using images from nature in art nouveau. Note the octopus on the bottom in the middle. It was in a display in the stairwell.
