Photographer's Note

I should like to put in my version of the pyramid of Louvre.
The Louvre Museum is very beautiful and these glass pyramids are considerable.

I went to Louvre on morning and I have thought that where enchanting
and i wanted to see them also of night.

Some news by Wikipedia:
Louvre Pyramid is the large metal and glass pyramid which serves as
the main entrance to the catacombs and has in the meantime become a
landmark for the city of Paris.

Commissioned by then French president François Mitterrand,
it was built in 1989 by the architect I. M. Pei from New York, who was
responsible for the design of the Miho Museum in Japan among others.
The structure, which was constructed entirely with glass segments,
reaches a height of 20.6 meters (about 70 feet); its square base has
sides of 35 meters (115 feet). It consists of 603 rhombus-shaped and 70
triangular glass segments.
