Terrace at Sainte-Adresse, 1867
Then in 2008, I had gone to Paris. It was my first trip to Europe. It was a beautiful city and I was excited to see all of the graffiti art. Then I stumbled upon the Orangerie Museum, which houses 8 water lily paintings. They were massive and beautiful! I remember being a bit sad because my camera batteries were dying. But I managed to get in some photos. I think I also bought every book they had in the gift shop about the paintings. If you ever get a chance to see one in person, I recommend finding a place to sit in the middle of the painting and just stare.
