Ghosts in the Louvre?


If you find your way down to the lower level of the Louvre, you'll find this room where the sculpture restoration takes place. Eerie? Yes, but what a wonderful find!

Well, I've never done that before at the Louvre! We'll have to look for the sculpture restoration department the next time we're in the Louvre.....maybe next summer? Qui sais!

Starman said...

Oh what a lovely 'spooky' kind of feel that image has Virginia, nope I would not like to be locked in there at night, good imagination I have!!

Its Lady GaGa!

Virginia said...

I'm surprised that many of you have not seen this room. It is visible from the floor above as I recall. I've actually found it twice I think. Now you must all search for "her" the next time you are there! :)

I've also seen this room. You've captured the ambience of the place perfectly in this b&w shot!

I am exhausted tonight and didn't need you to put nightmares in my mind.

Costas,
Merci, it is the city I love so it's easy.
