Merry Christmas from Paris!

No, I'm not in Paris right now...darnit.  ;-)

I took this photo on our recent trip over there. This is in the Galleries Lafayette which is right behind the Opera Garnier (which you will want to visit anyways).  While I generally detest shopping (except at camera stores, of course), I always make an exception when in Paris and visit this spot.  That big tree is in the center of the store and extends several stories up from the ground, which you can sort of see in the shot.  Pretty impressive!
