Photographer's Note

The Tuileries Garden covers about 63 acres (25 hectares) and still closely follows a design laid out by the royal landscape architect Andr Le Ntre in 1664. His spacious formal garden plan drew out the perspective from the reflecting pools one to the other in an unbroken vista along a central axis from the west fa軋de, which has been extended as the historical axis is a line of monuments, buildings and thoroughfares that extends from the centre of Paris to the west. It is also known as the "Voie Triomphale" (triumphal way). Today I am walking in The Tuileries Garden, not on the main axis but along the side of the Seine towards the Louvre. In the late afternoon, as I approach the Louvre, I have begun to see the fa軋de of Pavillon de Flore. (Reference: Wikipedia edited and added)
