Artist's Description

This was a quick off-hand shot on the way into the courtyard at the Louvre, but I quite liked it when I got round to processing it. It has an almost alien quality to it. As I’ve probably said in previous Louvre photos, this place is hideous during the day. Throngs of people, massive queues and a bad atmosphere. At night-time, however, it’s a whole different pyramid of fish.

During the small hours, the whole courtyard become magical. Hardly anyone is around late and night, the water is amazingly still and yet you’re in the heart of Paris. So my tip is to avoid the whole area during the day and wait until everyone goes home. You’ll miss the Mona Lisa, but that was one of the most underwhelming things I’ve ever seen.

The glass pyramids were not.
