Chevaliers de Sangreal

Hey folks!  Just got back from an amazing family trip to France (with some good friends along as well) and, while not a photography trip, I did manage to come home with some pretty decent shot.  I’ve decided to share one of my favorites from Paris with you today, in this Hans Zimmer inspired ‘Chevaliers de Sangral’; the song is the 13th track in Zimmer’s fantastic Da Vinci Code soundtrack.  Very moving music, and perfect for the quiet evening I spent at The Louvre (breathtaking museum!) shooting the fantastic pyramids there.  While I captured the larger pyramid in it’s entirety in my “tourist” shot, I also decided to shoot the scene in a way I had not yet seen on the internet for the blog; sometimes it’s not what you show that’s interesting, but rather what you don’t show that grabs the viewer, don’t you think?

Jaques, I agree it is somewhat common for ppl to get a head on shot of the pyramid structure, however, you went a different route by producing another view of it. It screams old vs new to me and you captured it beautifully.

Very nice composition, wonderful image.

Hey there, Chris and James. Appreciate the kind words.

I cannot stop looking at this image. I have wanted to be in that precise spot since I first heard of “pyramid” – you snatched the image right out of my head, outstanding job.

Thanks, Steve.

Wow! Amazing…..your work is incredible.

Thank you, very much, photolady.

Nothing about this sucks, my friend. Very outstanding!

Hey Bob. Thanks for that. Now if only I can get myself out of the creative doldrums long enough to start posting more!

I’ll go along with Bob on this one. This is an entirely suck-free image! It’s also one of my favourite places in Paris but that’s an entirely different discussion. Congratulations on another winner.

LoL! Suck-free! I love it. I should use that for an ad! Thanks, Dave!

Was this written about in the Dan Brown novels?
