The roof of the Grand Palais in Paris has recently been the object of extensive restoration work. The new glass used is stronger and more transparent because it's laminated (safety) glass rather than older glass that was reinforced with a metal grid. The Grand Palais is used as an exhibit hall and museum. It was built in the late 1800s and is located on the Seine near the Champs-Elysées.
From the top of the Tour Montparnasse, which is located three kilometers (2 miles) to the south, I took one photo of the Grand Palais and another of the Pont Alexandre III, the bridge across the Seine that was built at the same time. Here they are.
You can click or tap on the smaller images above to display them at a larger size (as with all the images here). Using Photoshop Elements, I was able to stitch the two photos together to make the one below. It was easy to do even though the two photos were not taken at the same zoom level.
I also took this zoomed-in photo of the gilded dome of the church at the nearby Hôtel des Invalides, a 17th century military hospital built during the reign of Louis XIV, France's "Sun King."
Under the gilded dome you'll find the massive marble tomb of another of France's great monarchs, the Emperor Napoléon.
