I went to the opera the other night, which got me to thinking, which got me to writing, and I’m still writing. Have you ever had one of those thoughts that led you to say to yourself, “Let me look that up.” Then that eventually led to looking something else up, and then something else. So, eventually, I’ll probably get a post up. In the meantime, I’ve downloaded some pictures from my camera. For some reason, I haven’t been taking as many photos as on previous trips. I’ve also tried drawing, but haven’t really done much. My visual imagination seems to be in a slow mode at the moment.
The first three photos were taken at the Bibliothèque Sainte Geneviève. It’s considered an architecturally important building for its use of cast iron. At the time I was there, an interactive art installation was in progress. There was also an art installation at the Panthéon.
I’m suffering from writer’s block tonight. Here are some pictures I took earlier.
It was such a lovely evening tonight, I decided to just walk around a bit. At first, I wasn’t exactly sure where to go, but then I remembered seeing Michael’s eTravelog. He’s traveling around Europe and he takes some great pictures. In a post about Paris, he had some photos of the Louvre at night, so I thought I might head over there. Do check out Michael’s blog.
It was a full moon, so I tried to work it into the photos.
This is I. M. Pei’s large central pyramid.
A row of lamps with the moon hovering above.
I like the way the lights above the arch emphasized the horizontal lines of the architecture.
This couple appeared to be having some wedding photos taken.
This is one of the small pyramids with a reflecting pool.
Since the couple was posing, I figured they wouldn’t mind if I snapped a few.
A young woman was pausing to look at her camera.
