Around The Louvre

I was taking photos outside of the Louvre Museum the other day, one of my favorite places to take photos.

Across Rue Rivoli right across from the Louvre was this huge screen put up to hide the renovation work going on the building which is a large complex of shops selling antiques. I thought the red ribbon for Christmas was a nice touch.

Then I noticed that there was an artist up there painting the screen. I couldn’t tell if there was some sort of outlines for him or her to follow but there must have been for such a huge canvas.

I wonder how many photos I have taken from this spot-the pyramid seen through the arch entering into the courtyard.

The pyramid always looks great reflecting in the water.

Scenes Outside the Louvre

There is a lot to see walking around the area around the outside of the Louvre.

Hard to beat shots of the famous pyramid.

There used to be four fountains working, then none and now they have two working. I like them, but I like the smooth water more for photos.

Lots of metal fences around decorated with gold paint.

No, these dogs aren’t spoiled. Why do you ask?
