Une Autre Vue



Le Louvre at night is magical.  I've been lucky enough to have had the chance to photograph it twice.  Today another angle.  ( There are NO bad angles of course.)

I remember when the pyramid was built, it was a scandal! Now , we can't imagine the yard of the Louvre without it, it's so magical!

Yes you are very fortunate to have been there. I've only ever read about it in The Da Vinci Code and marvelled. I'd love to be there myself!

All of my visits to paris were before the pyramid was constructed...that means I HAVE to go back soon, n'est-ce pas?

Such gorgeous light!

Three weeks touring France was my 50th birthday gift {a few ago}. I spent my actual b-day at the Louvre and it was heaven. I want to go back.

Lovely at night... la Grenouille just started a weekly art history class at the Louvre, she was there this morning... and I'm jealous, as I have to go out and bring the bacon home.

Oooooh—well-done, V! I remember when the pyramids weren't there, and how upset some folks were when they appeared, but I've always thought that they add a lot without detracting a thing.

With no people - how late did you have to go to catch that?

Virginia said...

Joe, it was late, can't remember exactly. There were one or two people around. Some were wading in the pools. Tourists I suspect! :)

Beautifully done. Magical is a perfect word to describe this.
