Observation: On this day I didn’t actually even go into the Louvre there is so much to see, and photograph, outside. This composition caught my eye. A tender, poignant or even ‘protective’ moment shared between the magnificently sculpted figures juxtaposed with a the normality of a modern-day fair ride. Surely only at Le Louvre can a work of this quality be exiled to the garden!

I'm passionate about travelling, music, photography, blogging, 'Social Anthropology' (the posh term for people-watching) and creating content. I travel to learn and observe to understand. My dream day would look something like this.... A bottle of red (or two), fresh baguette (or two) & wedge of Camembert (or two), a balmy Paris September eve spent people-watching in fine company on the banks of the Canal St Martin.
