Le Louvre

I have spent many hours over many different days – along this corridor that leads to the museum from outside the metro station Palais Royal Musée du Louvre – trying to make a photo like this one.

The long corridor is forever resonating with the voices of about one hundred odd people walking through it whilst the museum is open to the public. After all this is the most famous art museum in the whole world!

One morning, I reached the Louvre at about eight o’clock. Crowds had already begun queuing outside the primary entrance to the museum but bursts of people inside the long corridor were scattered.

After about half an hour, a man rode past me on his bicycle; what were the odds of that? I had never seen anyone bicycle within the premises of the Louvre before. He could have been an employee, perhaps security. And the rest is history!
