Daily Photo: The Louvre at Sunset
October 03, 2011
Despite traveling to Paris many times, I don't think I could ever get tired of it. The nice part about going to a great city like Paris more than once is you don't feel as compelled to do all the big touristy things on subsequent visits. During our last trip, we did a lot more dining and hanging out than sightseeing. Nonetheless, we did visit the Louvre, but only because we had bought the city's Museum Pass (an excellent bargain). I snapped this photo around sunset one evening as we were doing a flyby of greatest hits (we wanted to take a picture in front of the Mona Lisa. So much for not being tourists). The Louvre's famed glass pyramid, designed by internationally renowned starchitect I.M. Pei, is a worthy addition to any list of the world's greatest works. Its a remarkable sight, and a fitting addition to a remarkable collection in remarkable museum.
