Louvre Reflections II

For my next post I checked my archives to see if there was still anything worth posting. What I found was this photo, taken in Paris last January, which is another reflection of the Louvre in the famous glass pyramid, just as one of my first photos from Paris.

Musée du Louvre (or just Le Louvre) is one of the oldest (1793) and one of the largest museums in the world. It's located in the heart of Paris, close to the River Seine and at the end of le Jardin des Tuileries. The most famous work of art in the collection is probably Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa.
The pyramid in the foreground is the new entrance of the museum, which was completed in 1989 and designed by architect I.M. Pei.

Hope you like this photo and thanks for your visit!
