Pyramide du Louvre
Commissioned by the President of France François Mitterrand in 1984, it was designed by the architect I. M. Pei
Pyramide du Louvre is a large glass and metal pyramid, surrounded by three smaller pyramids, in the main courtyard of the Louvre Palace in Paris. The large pyramid serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum.
Only the French could combine modern and classical with such a statement. Top marks to the builders, it all seems perfectly symmetrical.
One exposure in RAW, straight from camera apart from a tweaks in RAW converter.
Thanks for looking
V2 is to take your eye in there!
PS. if you go to shoot these buildings take a wider lens than 24mm (on full frame). I missed a lot by not being able to get far enough back.
