This photo was taken in the Musée d'Orsay, previously was know as Orsay railway station. The clock and the glass are original from the beginning of the 20th century. I wanted to isolate the the beauty of the original architecture of the building without the beautiful contemporary environment. Also, the shadow walking behind the huge window represents the spirit of the people that used to walk in the station to catch trains and travel through Europe in a past era.
