One of my favorite paintings of all time is the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). There was a time when I thought she even looked like my crush in college with her long dark hair parted in the middle. Well, that was before she broke my heart.

When I visited the Louvre Museum in Paris a couple of years ago, I got the chance to see the Mona Lisa in person. There she was with her enigmatic smile shielded by a thick bulletproof glass. If there was a surprise, it was her dimensions measuring a mere 31 x 21 inches. I always thought she was much bigger than that.

I didn’t have a hard time finding her. But I had a hard time taking a picture of her because of the crowd that couldn’t get enough of her. I guess that’s how it is when your reputation precedes you.
