Henri Cartier Bresson

Christie's in Paris recently auctioned one hundred photographs from the Henri Cartier Bresson Foundation. The photographs were displayed for viewing before the auction and anyone could visit the galleries for free -- so we stopped by for a look.

Wow. What a stunning collection. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Of course, we couldn't afford to buy one. Prices started at around 6,000 euros.
And this one went for a record 433,000 euros!

You can check out the results here for yourself.

By the way, speaking of Christie's auctions -- there's one coming up in December in NYC -- The Elizabeth Taylor collection.

If you've got a little spare change, you might pick up a diamond ring. Here's one that is up for auction.
