The Louvre From A Different Perspective

Posted by on 7 October 2008

The Louvre is so huge that I’d probably finish up countless SD cards if I were to shoot every exhibit and every hall and every display that caught my eye.

While most visitors focused on the paintings and sculptures, my eyes were drawn to the ceilings. Arches. Murals. Frescoes. Paintings.

Louvre arches

Such exquisite, opulent designs.

And all in incredible…

…and painstaking detail.

I could hardly breathe as I craned my neck and snapped, snapped, snapped away, feeling giddy with my little discovery.

Sometimes all it takes is a different perspective…

    I wish I could go there as well. I have a grandma there, and my sis came to see her, I guess I am just stuck here in the PI, oh well…. NOw, all I need is to pray for miracle, that I can go there someday soon!

    Nakakalula on such display of grandeur and opulence. Very apt for kings to reside here in the old days before it was turned into a museum.
