Good morning!!………Further exploring as seen in the photographs preceding this duo. I often will go back to a place I like and have another ‘dialogue’ with my subject. And I don’t know why but I have a feeling this won’t be the last time – here’s to the great I. M. Pei. Please enjoy this very brief architectural post and thank you in advance for stopping by (both Musée du Louvre entrance hall btw).

Good morning!…Winter in Paris and it’s gray and rainy – I had to run a couple of errands around the Orsay and was lacking some contemporary feel so I popped into the entrance hall at the Louvre (just across the Seine from the M’O). No money spent, just the entrance hall to capture some lines. The trick here was to avoid overexposure due to the strong white light coming in through the skylight, a challenge onto itself. They were operating the ‘lift’ tube up and down so I took advantage of that and selected a looking down and looking down view with it fully deployed to present the pieces. I love how the Europeans incorporate new designs into old/classical structures; a practice that is normal these all over the world, such being the case with the ROM in Toronto and countless buildings in London for example. Please enjoy them and look for more in future postings….
