Louvre Pyramids at Night

This is our entry in Lost in Translation’s THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PORTRAIT VS. LANDSCAPE.

These photos of the large Louvre Pyramid and one of the smaller pyramids were taken in Paris, France, during an evening rain shower. Behind the pyramids are the Louvre Palace that houses the Louvre Museum.  The first photo, in landscape mode, was taken from the main courtyard. The second photo, in portrait mode, was taken from a side passage through the Palace, directly behind the location of the first photo.

Looking closely at the photo above, you can see a bride posing between the pyramids on the left side, while her groom (far left) takes her picture.  Looking even more closely, you may see feet walking in front of the smaller pyramid; it took five seconds for this person to walk in front of the pyramid.

In the above photo, the ghost of a woman can be seen in front of the pyramids; she lingered there for a few seconds before moving away. The camera was much farther away from the pyramids in the second photo, but the zoom made the pyramids and the building beyond seem very close together.

These photos were taken on October 7, 2016, at around 6 pm, with a Canon 100D camera. Specs are:

Landscape photo: ISO 100, f/8, 5.0 sec, 18 mm

Portrait photo: ISO 100, f/8, 8.0 sec, 50 mm
