2 Things Challenge: Merge / Diverge

Diverge : The Louvre Museum and I.M. Pei Pyramid : Paris, FR

This week's 2 Things Challenge is Merge / Diverge. Last weekend, I was in Paris, the City of Lights, with my sister. We had pretty busy days that started early and ended late. The first night we were in Paris, we saw the Eiffel Tower. The second night, we were at the Louvre Museum. For this week's challenge, I give you the merging lattice work of the Eiffel Tower and the diverging lines of the fountain at the Louvre.

VERY impressed with your photo of the Pyramid. Fabulous angle, tonality, composition. You did good, girl.

Two wonderful, very dramatic photos! I really like the Louvre and pyramid photo particularly! C'est formidable!

Wonderful! My entry is a picture, but yours is art.

These are both great pictures. The added bonus is that Paris is my Favorite city.

I stand in awe.

Maya said...

Wow, both amazing shots! I think the top one would have done nicely for both subjects with the buildings merging in the reflection too!

Tash: Thanks! I really liked yours, too. (I should leave a comment on your blog to that effect!)

Carolyn: Thank you. At the time I took them, I thought they were just average, but in looking at them months later, I realize they're not so bad.

Leif: Merci beaucoup! I like the Louvre one best, too.

Larry: I liked the creativity of your photo. I'm not sure mine are art any more than yours are "just a photo."

James: Paris is a WONDERFUL city! I love going there.

Cele: I'm awed by your awe. ;-)

Maya: Thank you! I think either would have worked for the theme, although the top one would have been very best for both.
