Musee d'Orsay, Paris

We now return to your regularly scheduled travel photography. This picture of the Musee d’Orsay in Paris is taken from half-way up the museum’s translucent end wall, peaking between the steel beams which hold the structure together.

The Musee d’Orsay is a wonderful example of an industrial building being reinvented for a new lease on life: it used to be Gare_d’Orsay, and some suburban trains still use the station’s lower levels to this day.
