Golden hour at The Louvre

Whenever you plan a visit to Paris, The Louvre is probably high on your list of things to see.  That makes sense - it's arguably the most famous museum in the world.  And while I also visited some of the exhibits in the museum, I was actually more keen on photographing the thing, because it's incredibly beautiful (inside and out).

So, my Louvre visit was a quick couple of hours one afternoon during the bright sunshine (and I grabbed some shots of the interior, which is fascinating), followed by a return later that day for golden hour and sunset.  I was not disappointed.

I find it hard to focus on so much awesome art while visiting a museum, so bringing my camera helps me stay grounded by shooting away at all the incredible architecture.  That way, I get my moneys worth - I see art and create art on the same visit.  Win-win.
