Louvre Pyramid at Dusk

My work is located a short walk from the Louvre (actually, so is pretty much all of downtown Paris). With all the craziness of work and school (aka never-ending thesis), it’s been easy to just rush from work to home and forget about what an awesome city I live in. The weather was pretty nice a week ago (it’s gone downhill since then), so I decided to take a stroll to the Louvre.

It was one of those magical times when all the tourists seemed to have vanished (dinner time? who knows) and I found myself standing in an empty space, except for a few like-minded photographers and a couple of guys selling miniature Eiffel Towers. It was a pretty cloudless day so dusk had a lot of deep colours reflecting off the glass pyramid.
