The Weekend in Black and White

The view through one of the Musée d'Orsay clocks.
I loved this place back in the day, when
it was an eerie abandoned railroad station.

Merci to Jacques Duhamel, minister for cultural affairs
in 1970, for not letting them tear it down and to
the directorate of Les Musées de France for 
having the brilliant idea to turn it into a home for
the largest collection of Impressionist and 
Post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world.

  1. Beautiful contribution to the b&w theme!

  2. Great composition in your photograph, but not sure I would stand there when the clock struck the hour, if there are bells it must be loud.

  3. Love this as a black and white image!

  4. Wonderful composition.

  5. Great composition! Excellent photo!

  6. Excellent image. I love the composition.
    Sorry I'm so late visiting ;)
