Leanne’s theme this week for her Monochrome Madness Challenge is Shadows and I have decided to submit a photo I took on our trip to Paris in 2014 when we visited the Louvre a couple of times. On our second museum visit we concentrated our attention on the French sculptures in the Richelieu wing and the adjoining courts. Glass roofs were constructed over these courts in 1993 and I was able to take several shots that highlighted the resulting shadows all over the walls, floors and statues. This one was taken in the Cour Puget.
See here for the color, uncropped versions of this photo and here for more photos in the Cour Marly. And see here and here for two additional monochrome madness entries of photos I took of statues in the Richelieu wing of the Louvre.
