Relic // Louvre Art {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Art from the LouvreHave you ever been to the Louvre in Paris? The treasures and inspiration there can be overwhelming! I’ve been there several times and still haven’t seen all there is to see. I think I could be there for a week straight and not see it all.

On this particular day, I was inspired and in awe of all the wings and textures and photographed a few…

While walking through the museum, heading down the stairs from one world of inspiration to the next, I was struck by the glimpse into the behind-the-scenes world of restoring found treasures for display in the museum. How amazing would it be to work on these relics and bring them to the world to view? Aww, the dream lives of archeologists and art conservationists…

When I read The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie, I immediately thought of all the ghouls and creepy things that came with Halloween. But then I remembered a couple of shots I took on my last day in Paris, inside the Louvre. I loved these images, but never really knew what I was going to do with them. Thank heavens for prompts making me think outside the box!

We had just a couple of hours at the Louvre before we had to head to the train station to continue our adventure in the South of France. My girlfriends and I decided to go our own ways in the Louvre as we all wanted to see different things. On my way about, I got a bit twisted around, but luckily found these sculptures that caught my attention in the Richelieu wing.

Have you photographed anything eerie lately? Be sure to play along with the Daily Post!

Photo Challenge: Distant

Now that we’re almost completely settled into our new home, I have time to catch up on some of my favorite blogs! There are some fantastic ones out there, and I always love challenges – photography and paper crafting in particular. This week, A Word a Week Photo Challenge landed on the word “Distant” and although my mind was going in a billion different directions, I finally landed on two thoughts…

First, this rainbow I “caught” earlier this year. It was a gray day, but after dropping my girls off at school, I spotted the colorful creation and drove to a nearby park with some open space to grab a quick shot. Those gorgeous rainbows are always elusive, aren’t they?!

My other thought was on the fact that I still have so many photos I haven’t done anything with from my trip earlier this year to France. While in Paris, it started snowing on us! The trip was only four months ago, but the memories and adventure already feels like the distant past. So I pulled this photo of the snow coming down over the Louvre, and as I was processing, I decided to have some colorful Andy Warhol inspired fun!

What photos, memories or visuals come to mind when you hear the word distant? I’d love to hear. And you can always play along in the challenge. Wishing you a beautiful and colorful day!
