Always great to spot your shots here. This is a great, original take on the famous pyramid. Lovely red/dark contrasts too! Perfect capture of that one man (avoiding the crowds?) in the frame.
The Louvre itself has become a disappointment lately. It feels more like a warehouse or a busy train station. Long live the smaller museums! (Have you visited the Artemisia exhibition at the Musée Maillol?)

Very interesting shot inside the pyramid, I like the light and the composition, the human presence is a plus here. good work!
