Student Notebook: The Louvre
Sarah Sabatke, a senior at Monroe High School, spent a week in Barcelona and a week in Paris during June, 2013. She took the above photos during her visit to Paris. She said, I took (the top photo) when we walked on a bridge to cross the river Seine near Notre Dame.I just saw that Parisian man holding the newspaper and staring out over the water, and it looked so peaceful that I had to take a picture. I took the picture in both black-and-white and color, so it didn't need to be edited afterward. The second one is the called the Lock Bridge on the Ponts de Arts. People put locks on the bridge with someone they love and throw the key into the Seine. My lock is the red heart-shaped one in the bottom middle. The main reason that I took the picture, besides the great scenery, was so I could go back in 10 or 20 years and be able to find my lock using the landmarks in the picture. (Photos by Sarah Sabatke)
It was a mild June day, the rain starting and stopping every few minutes. We had left our apartment in the tenth arrondissement early that morning, and had finally walked across the Seine. We were on our way to one of the most exclusive museums in the world: the Louvre.
