The shot isn't too exciting, but I wanted to remember the details. Look how many colors of marble and wood go into making this bit of the hallway.
I love the woman's smile here, and her excitement in discovering something.
At the end of the wing near the cafe is this view over the Seine . . . with flags.
I don't remember who or what, but I like it. Look at the cool frame, too.
And here is Nike of Samothrace again from the next floor up. She's one of my favorites, there's no doubt about it. She's such an exalted setting, too.
The rooms become more interesting than the scenes after awhile. It's all Napoleonic bombast, and the subject matter feels repetitive, but it's a change, like entering a theatre. It was fun to look at.
Here's more of the Louvre's beautiful, old flooring.
More painting. It think it's French.
And still more.
I think this was in the passageway near the bathrooms. I'd like to know enough to be able to shoot a pic like this and also get the building through the window. I like it anyway, but these shots remind me that I want to sign up for a digital photography class.
I've always liked Delacroix's tigers.
I think we know this guy. I do like the scene with the rocks and snow for contrast. The artist is Paul Delaroche.
