The Louis Vuitton foundation by Frank Gehry

Visiting the Louis Vuitton foundation on Nov 16, we really enjoyed our trip. The exhibitions aren’t really there so we’ll have to come back to it later but honestly, the main attraction is Frank Gehry’s building. A real beauty, in the middle of the fantastic ‘jardin d’acclimatation’ an 1860 zoological garden turned into a funfair and city centre farmhouse with sheep and cows and all the trappings. All those views were shot with my vintage 35 mm fixed 1961 Nikkor lens in manual mode.

The mist made the building even more interesting.

The modern cascade is also very scenic

The lifts are pretty useless and undersized but the staircase is beautiful and broad.
