Photographer's Note

Hello,

This photo was taken in Paris, in Palais Royal, between the Cour d'Honneur and the Jardin. There is an sculpture with metallic spheres making a mega wide angle effect.

In 1632 Richelieu ordered the construction of the palace to the architect Lemercier. After his dead, it belonged to Luis XII, and his son Luis XIV used it as official residence instead of the Louvre. After that it was called Palais Royal. It was also casino, stock exchange, administrative offices and court.

Regards,
Javier
