Weekly Photo Challenge – Angular

When I first read the word “Angular”, I immediately thought of the pyramids of Giza, Egypt, the ancient iconic structures that we see resonated in plenty of instances in modern day architecture.

Alas, I have not been to Egypt and witnessed the pyramids firsthand. So, for this week’s photo challenge – “Angular”, I have settled for I.M. Pei designed Glass Pyramid which along with three smaller pyramids, sits proudly with all its glass and metallic splendor in the courtyard of the Louvre in Paris.

  1. Having visited the Pyramids and the Louvre, I would say I prefer the Louvre…I felt a little disappointed with the Pyramids but I could spend hours if not days exploring the treasures of the Louvre… The French flag and the two lit windows in your picture make for an interesting image.

    • Thanks Jim for stopping by and commenting on the photo! Yes, even though I selected the picture first for the glass pyramid, on more careful observation, I liked the flag and the lit windows πŸ™‚

  2. Ooooooh … nice, nice nice! I think this was an amazing photo taken in a place that everyone wants to visit if they have never been (myself included). Thanks a lot for sharing these (and thinking it’s ok the pics weren’t from Egypt – lol) πŸ™‚
