Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique | The Louvre in Paris, France

louvre halftone

For me, the Louvre in Paris, France definitely spells unique. Here is the original photo I took in 1990 with some up to date remixes to give it some color. The museum itself is a unique and wonderful place to visit. Here, the newly designed pyramid, that is also the entrance to the museum, is under construction. It provides a distinctive and contemporary look to the historical structure of the museum. A must visit for anyone looking for that certain unique experience.

  2. Oh my. This reminds me of my one and so far only visit to Paris. It was at the end of week long horse back riding tour of the Dordogne wine region. I had 3 days all to myself in the city of art. Knowing very little about art, I had read some books and was looking forward to full immersion. My luck: The museum workers were on strike. Not a single museum was open. I still had a wonderful time walking the streets of Paris and wandering in to private galleries and just absorbing the vibe. I wanna go back!

  3. Ahhh Linda, to have missed the Louvre and the Musee de Orsay. I feel for you. But you did experience Paris. And that in itself is a wonderful experience.
