Emilio over at Photos by Emilio invited me to join in the 5 photos, 5 stories challenge. If you haven’t viewed Emilio’s awesome photos and seen his unique finishing touches, you really must pay him a visit. In addition to being quite the digital artist, he’s also one of the nicest bloggers I’ve met on here.
Continuing on my theme of WEIRDNESS AT THE LOUVRE….
I promised today to show you some of the weird, head-scratching situations outside the Louvre.
My son and I didn’t last the many hours my husband wanted to tour inside the Louvre (mostly because our feet were done in!), so we went up to sit in the square while we waited for him to see all he wanted to. Little did we know, my son and I, that the real show at the Louvre was outside! From the tourist vultures to the solitary nun, to the young couple dressed in tux and gown, and then the security guards with scary-looking, muzzled German Shepherds showing up to patrol the Louvre overnight, we had to wonder how so many different sorts of people could converge on one place and, even more, how one place could attract so many people doing so many different sorts of activities.
Perhaps one of the most perplexing of all, though, was the man on the right in this photo (yes, the one on the left is odd too, but that’s a story for another day!). My son burst out laughing as we sat there watching all the people and quickly grabbed his camera to take this shot.
Now I ask you…..would you ever?
Thanks for joining me today.
Tomorrow, another scene from outside the Louvre.
