With Hipstamatic to the Palais Garnier

Somehow the possibility of rounding the corner and coming face to face with the Phantom of the Opera seemed to demand that I bring my trusty Hipstamatic to take some snaps of this second empire opera house.

Yes there is an underground lake (kept in check by a coffer dam with a resident white catfish), yes there has been at least one death (a worker killed by the theatre chandelier’s counterweight) and yes the cellars in the basement go on forever.
