There was an exhibition of the photographic works of Irving Penn at the Grand Palais. He produced a large number of prints for Vogue and similar magazines.

I liked the series of prints in the "Small Traders" section.

Dinner this evening was at Le P'tit Canon which was busy as usual. We started by sharing a plate of anchovies (pickled but not salty as from a can) and ended by sharing a tarte tatin. We each had a gogot d'agneau (lamb shank) which was very good but a ;ot of meat in a rich broth with plenty of vegetables. Maybe we should have shared the lamb as well.
|The Cheverny was a good red to accompany the lamb|
|Good job I had made a reservation.|
