For me the magic of the Louvre begins after night falls. Usually, the crowds have dissipated and the admission price is discounted. Bonus!
I love the shimmer of the light reflecting off the water
And the moon shining from above
I love the glow of the lights from within
It takes on such a different personality, you almost don’t recognize it as the same place you saw during daylight
Turn around and behind you is the l’ Arc du Carrousel. And you thought l’Arc du Triomphe was the only one worth seeing…
Can you see the Eiffel Tower peeking out on the left?
And again, my favorite shot, taken at night. I love that the moon is visible between the diamond left of the center.
Which one is your favorite? What are your favorite after dark shots? And while we are at it, there has always been controversy revolving around the modern Pyramids by I. M. Pei….so let’s take a little vote. Yeah or Nay on the Pyramids? I’ll weigh in…I’m a yeah! I love the juxtaposition of the new modern lines of the pyramids and the old ornate curves of the architecture. It creates more of visual interest. Your turn.
