Paris 1st: The Louvre

We’re having a bunch of beautiful sunny days in Paris, so I jumped on the occasion while I was near the Concorde and had my camera with me to walk down the Tuileries and take some shots of the Louvre.

What a crazy idea to do that on a Saturday, at one of the most visited places by tourists. But I don’t have the chance to do things like that on a weekday right now so I did my best to avoid the odd people that feel the need to lay back on the pyramids, arms wide open, right when I’m pressing the shutter button.

Obviously I didn’t take any photos inside the museum, but the place outside is quite lovely. You can seat on the benches that garnish the square and read for a while or stop at the terrace of a restaurant if you’re feeling fancy.

I know the first two photos aren’t actually from the Louvre but I’m posting them anyway!
