18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Glass Pyramid Seen from Inside a Palace in France

This photograph was captured from inside the Musée du Louvre, and I think the geometry of the composition brings a sense of grandeur, a deep sense of power. The contrast between baroque and modern, and the volatility of human attention to details. On this photograph I can see the ephemeral and minimal appreciation of the experience and live, against a magnificent and perpetual expression of the timeless nature of art.
