Making an Impression

Things have changed at the Musée d'Orsay.
Now you're not allowed to take photos at all,
but when I shot (w/o flash, of course) this closeup of
Oeillets et Clematites Dans un Vase de Crystal
back in 2005, pas de problème.  And there was a 
guard sitting almost directly underneath this little
painting too.  I think it's the "flashers" (you know who
you are!) who have ruined it for the rest of us.  Just sayin'.

P.S.—it's worth enlarging this to truly appreciate
the beauty of Edouard Manet's brushstrokes.
