MM 4-32 Mona Lisa on 5th Avenue

We visited the Louvre one day during our 2014 vacation in Paris and saw Mona Lisa. I was surprised how small she was! Then last June we stopped in New York for a few days on our way back home from our vacation in Spain and Portugal and we saw Mona Lisa again one day when we were walking down 5th Avenue. This version of the lady with the mystic smile was much larger than Leonardo’s original.  And this picture I took of her will be my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge.

    Well done! It seems to me that Mona Lisa has an extra beautiful smile with her look down on New York City.
