Canons to the left, Canons to the right,
We hold our L glass toward the light,
Digitizing in a snap reflective glory
That will forever tell our imaged story.

River boats on river Seine.
Seen from the footbridge of musée d'Orsay, in the background: Concorde bridge and Grand Palais.

I do confirm, it's the one which is at the South end of Ile des Cygnes

I've been to Paris twice, and both times I wasn't expecting to be there. I hope to return one day with more of an idea of where I want to go and what I want to do.

Musée d'Orsay. I was able to photograph anything I liked in my 2007 visit. I got this shot from an upper balcony of the museum toward the Sacré Cœur in the distance.

You have been very lucky Advaitin, and I'm pleased for you, because now it's completely forbidden to take any photo at Orsay.
I understand that flash can be forbidden in order to preserve the paintings, but why to prohibit photos without flash ?? vmad

Electronic flash was no great problem as the duration and intensity was too brief to do much or any damage. It was a disturbance to others and it did allow for taking better photos (if done correctly). Museums banned it so they could more easily sell their own color postcards and prints. They also banned tripods for the same reason. Oh, they claimed they were hazards for other guests, but no more so than the amateur painters they allow in. It was to keep photographers from getting too good an image.
It took a while for them to realize that image-stabilized digital cameras with auto ISO and auto exposure could allow for as good a result as with tripod or or flash. No matter what the "official" reason, It's all about controlling the use of their images for resale.

It's exactly the reason. I agree with you.

As you said, c'est la vie ... ;-)a
