I was really excited to see the Louvre, not go in, just see it… taking my camera with me.
I’m known in my class as loving contemporary architecture and geometric shapes so these forms were always going to attract me. However, what I really loved was the contrast between the beautiful old buildings and the clear pyramid like forms.
What I also like is how the different angles and perspectives change the appearance of the area so dramatically. I took so many photos I have found it very hard to choose which ones to post.
I decided to post both of the next two, even though they are from the same angle, because the cropping changes them so much. The atmosphere is quite different and they give a very different idea of the space between the buildings.
I plan on posting more of my photographs of the Louvre over the next week.
