musee de la chasse et de nature

I have been trying to work on my essays all weekend but have been entirely unproductive. Everything is due this week though so it will have to be done! 

I didn't really take many photos, or do anything very photo-worthy this week, but here are some pictures taken on a grey afternoon spent at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (Museum of Hunting and Nature), which is actually a very beautifully designed place, with tons of interesting details, plenty of taxidermy, amazing light fixtures, and a helpful staff of grey-haired men who are excited to tell you about Louis XIV's penchant for dogs or to point out the detail of a painted mouse peeking out from behind the baseboards. It is pretty small which makes it very manageable for a short afternoon. Definitely recommended.
