The Mona Lisa Room

Newly re-hung after restoration.

I didn't even try to get up close. The room was tighter than elbow-to-elbow on the other side of the barrier. I wasn't being overly mindful, and so accidentally captured a young girl being likewise captured by her dad.

And, you know, serendipity is your friend when at the moment I clicked my shutter, someone up close fired off their flash so you can actually see Mona Lisa behind her protective ultra-violet glass filter. I've heard that Ms. Mona . . . er, Lisa . . . er, the painting has been moved yet again. I wouldn't know, because I haven't been back to see for myself.
