[Three] women at a window

When looking at the portrait of an unnamed woman leaning out of her Lower East Side apartment I was drawn back to Bartolom√© Esteban Murillo's Two Women at a Window.  The three woman above all casually lean out of their home to address and watch those passing by below.  The viewer is not given insight into what they see, but rather a snapshot in time of their reaction to what happens below.

Postcards of Paris

The Eiffel Tower and the boulevards of Paris have been reproduced in art since their construction.  Whether they are copied in the avant grade art of the 20th century or in a picture for a coffee table at home of a vacation, their image has proliferated the globe.  Above are three shots from a dreary day to add to the the infinite portfolio of the city of light.
