One morning in Paris, many years ago, I was walking through the Louvre early in the morning. It was nice to see the area infant of the museum, by the (in)famous Pyramids so quiet and not crowded with people. When it’s nice and quiet like this it’s a very different place, and actually quite peaceful.
On one of my first trips to New York a good few years ago, one of the places I was keen to visit and pay my respects was Ground Zero, and the site of the World Trade Centre. The area was still under re-construction at the time and it was a surreal and moving experience to visit the site. One of the walkways gave a clear view of the foundations of what would later become the new Freedom Tower, or One World trade Centre. It was quite shocking to see in person for the first time when you suddenly got a sense of the scale of what had happened.
I had actually forgotten about this shot, but I came across the photo again recently while sorting through my Library.
I took this photo of the Louvre a long time ago, on one of my first trips to the wonderful city of Paris, France. I had gotten up early one morning to explore the city in the early light, and I was wandering around the area of the river. From here you can go in through the rear entrance to the Louvre, which brings you into this beautiful Courtyard
