Featured Photo: The Palace and the Pyramid (The Louvre; Paris, France)

The glass pyramid entry to the world-famed Louvre Museum in Paris provides sharp contrast to the original palace and one-time home of Louis XIV.The dramatic lighting was just another stroke of luck on a visit filled with magical Parisian moments.

  1. I’ve been here, and it looks like the beauty of the Louvre vis spoilt by the pyramid.

  2. Hi Graham! It’s always a bit controversial to mix old and new architecture, but I liked it. Slightly jarring, yes. But they are both arresting structures and their proximity to one another accentuates the beauty of each. And, there are still unobstructed views of the magnificent Palace… ; )
