crowds of tourists at the louvre pyramid counting its 673 panes of glass!

673 panes of glass make up the Louvre Pyramid, surely being counted by these tourists 🙂

Architect I.M. Pei designed the Louvre Pyramid to contrast the new and old, bringing a very modern feel to the museum’s entrance. Courtesy of Google we know there are 673 panes of glass and these people are trying to count them all. This picture of the Louvre was taken summer 2015 which explains the crowd, lack of social distancing and no masks (Do you believe we used to congregate like this?). That’s what makes this picture so special right now while parts of where we live are in COVID lockdown. Enjoy your travels via the internet this holiday season! And remember to wear your mask 😉

Selfie Mayhem With The Mona Lisa

selfie mayhem with the mona lisa
The scene unfolding in front of the Mona Lisa at The Louvre in Paris… complete mayhem with people attempting to take a selfie with the famous picture. This capture is more entertaining than a photo of ‘her’!  Couple other observations… the Mona Lisa is really small vs. what you would expect, and people would rather have a photo to say they were ‘there’ vs. actually taking in the art.
