day 2136 – arc du triomphe

visiting one of my top paris attraction arc du triomphe. the intersection it stands on is crazy; twelve different routes merging into the roundabout. by now, i have grasped the concept of paris driving – drive aggressively and use all methods to get around obstructions. as i stood before the arc daringly close to the traffic, i never imagined it would tower over me like so. decided not to buy tickets to go up and that was the correct choice because the lineup to the lift is long. i think the point is to view the actual structure and not to look down on the surrounding things from the top

day 670 – sketch model

i like cutting stuff and making models but today’s sketch tower model was almost a costly one. had a really close call as i nearly slit my finger while cutting carelessly fast rushing to finish. being too casual with the xacto knife almost to the point of carelessness. probably a good time thing to slow it down or take a break so not to cause anymore unnecessary damages
