An iconic (and rather controversial) merger of the old and the new, the classical and the ultra-modern!
Until next time…happy travels, no matter where life takes you!
You can see other ‘merged’ entries here.
Thank you 🙂
This is the perfect picture for ‘merger’. I love it:)
Thank you Khaula 🙂
Another fabulous entry Madhu! 🙂
Thanks Elizabeth 🙂
Yes, I like the merge of old and new. This is a hard challenge.
Yes, I first thought merge meant ‘blend with the background’! 🙂
You tackled that challenge really well! Lovely picture!
Thanks Rachelynne! And thanks also for the follow 🙂 Look forward to seeing you around.
cool! excellent interpretation of the theme!
Appreciate your saying so Stephen 🙂
Oh, thank you Gabriel! Pleased to meet you 🙂
Thank you Juliann 🙂
Stunning Picture. 🙂
That’s amazing, Madhu. I wouldn’t have thought there were any new takes on the Louvre entrance possible! But you found one —
Thank you! This is from one of the windows on the second floor 🙂

Flattered Angeline 🙂 Many thanks!
Majestically merged!! Brilliant, you did it again, Madhu! Happy weekend.
Thank you Amy! You are too kind 🙂
Great – very well chosen… 😉
Thank you Ledrake 🙂
Per me quella piramide al Louvre è l’intrusione di un megalomane.
By itself I think it is brilliant! Amidst all that classic architecture, you would be justified in calling it an intrusion! Grazie mill for sharing your thoughts 🙂

One of my favourite places, Madhu 🙂
Mine too Kate! Feels like however much time you allot for the Louvre it still isn’t enough!

Happy you think so Marina 🙂
Great photo, Madhu! 🙂
i like this: No matter where life takes you!
Thanks Nandini! Yes it is the being happy that counts, not the ticking countries off your list 🙂 Appreciate your stopping by.
Something amazing happens when you merge the old and the new. Beautiful!
I agree, but ! guess it is in the eye of the beholder though 🙂 Thanks IT 🙂
I love this contrast!
Thank you Mimo 🙂
Heh – wonderful 🙂 Maybe I will give it a go after all. Won’t match your pic though 🙂
Oh I have no doubt you will come up with something spectacular! 🙂
🙂 came up with something – but there;s no spectacular architectural qualities!
Thank you Vastlycurious 🙂
I’ve seen some magnificent shots of the pyramid, but I’ve never seen anyone line it up at that angle before Madhu – it’s as if you had the challenge in mind … Great shot, perfect subject 🙂
Oh, thank you TWLG 🙂 The views from the upper floors are as magnificent as the contents of the Louvre!
In some lights it looks like a jewel – and the juxtaposition of the glass prisms held together by polished steel is magical. 🙂
Great interpretation and a striking capture of old and new.
Thank you Fergiemoto 🙂

What a wonderful pic of old and new for Merge!! Especially in iteself that the pyramid of glass comes from out of ghisa and ancient in itself!!
Thank you Lisa! You mean the concept is ancient, because this is an ultra-modern construction by I M Pei.
Wow! Terrific photograph and interpretation of merge.
Thank you Lola 🙂
I. M. Pei’s artistic vision was, indeed, controversial. Excellent choice for this challenge.
And I can understand the misgivings, considering the vastly differing styles. But he is one of my favourite architects! I did a feature earlier on the Suzhou Museum that he designed for his hometown.
