Walking around the Louvre


Sometimes a photographer can trap another one! That's what I did when taking this shot in the main courtyard of the Louvre where the famous glass Pyramid (that I only photographed once here) was built. This pyramid is also surrounded by several basins that I used in this picture. Have a nice week everyone...

  1. Thank you Eric, I'll need it i feel. I wish you too.
    At first glance this person looks as though wading through treacle. lol. What a great shot though, that pyramid is so interesting. Never seen it up close.

  2. You lucky man to live in a city where such a visual feast set out before you. Your subject looks like a fly fisherman of images, holding a little camera instead of a rod and reel.

  8. treacle
    Etymology: Middle English triacle, from Anglo-French, from Latin theriaca, from Greek thēriakē antidote against a poisonous bite, from feminine of thēriakos of a wild animal, from thērion wild animal, diminutive of thēr wild animal — more at FIERCE
    1: a medicinal compound formerly in wide use as a remedy against poison
    2: chiefly British a: MOLASSES b: a blend of molasses, invert sugar, and corn syrup used as syrup —called also golden syrup
    3: something (as a tone of voice) heavily sweet and cloying

    I love words as much as I love Paris, including looking at the etymology and the users. !!

  12. Mommy: don't forget to visit the Louvre website. It's the next best thing to being there! But be careful, you may lose an afternoon before you know it.

  13. Thanks, Jeff - I was wondering what "treacle" was - clever Lynn.

    I have only seen water in the Fountains here once - all the other times they had been drained. This is such a romantique place at night when it's all lit up!!

  16. I love this shot Eric - you seem to take a lot of pics where you place the camera on the ground or on a ledge and I think it's really effective (reminder to self: must do more of this).

    Just on a point of reflection: I talk about the daily photo blogs loads, not just in my personal circle but also at work as social networking is a lot of what we do at Spannerworks. How many blogs are we up to? how much traffic do we generate as a group of bloggers? how many comments are there within our circles? I'd love to know some of this stuff.

    Good work brother - look see what you started!!!

  17. I like that angle as well. I think to do that when I photograph my cat but not when I'm photographing other subjects. I like this black and white and the photographer! Fun. I love catching others in action.
