The Louvre from the gardens

Paris has so many beautiful corners. Visible from the Tuileries gardens, the buildings of the Louvre are elegant and majestic. They are covered in carvings and statues and consequently I could admire them for hours, without any need to rush inside to view the many treasures contained within. Surprisingly, crowds keenly rush to be swallowed underground (by descending under the glass pyramid that covers the modern entrance to the Louvre), without seeming to truly take in the splendour of all that surrounds them.
