The Art of Imitating Art

I was first made aware of this brilliant blog via Lost At E Minor’s facebook post.  How could I not share it with you? 
Apparently,  after a visit to Paris one summer, these folks noticed that a large amount of visitors felt compelled to pose like the art they were viewing.  So, they shot some photos, and encouraged others to send in their own photos, of people trying their best to become like the great works at the Louvre and other places where art resides. The result is sweet, sometimes awkward,  and amusing.They posted their findings on a blog they call Posing at the Louvre.
