The Musée d’Orsay in Paris offers visitors an astounding collection of art to view as they pass from gallery to gallery. The bright light pouring in from the clock face that occupies a corner of the museum seems too intense to behold, but makes for a lovely silhouetted image as visitors pause to look out over Paris and take photos of the ticking hands.
