My Own Private Paris (Extreme Makeover, part 2)

For part 2 of my extreme makeover photo-within-a-photo project, I have transformed a few more local Utah sights. If only...

If that little canal near my house were a bit more like the Seine, I would take my dog on walks more often. (You've gotta love how that couple seems ready to stroll out of the picture only to become the tiny and unsuspecting victims of a quantum leap into Orem, UT. --Chérie, what is ziss place? Who is zat giant man?)

I like Cafe Rio as much as the next Utahn (Well, maybe not. I actually prefer Las Tarascas, or when in SLC, The Red Iguana), but I'd like it much more if were the Café de Flore.

And would a little more PDA (as in public display of affection, not personal digital assistant--we have WAY too many of those around here) destroy the moral fabric of our beloved Happy Valley?
The photo within the photo is at the Louvre pyramid designed in 1989 by I.M. Pei. The glass building behind it is the BYU library, expanded in 1999 and inspired by none other than I.M. Pei's Louvre project (or so I've been told).
