Hello! I’m Pernette Le Flour, a 26 year-old French girl, and this is my photoblog… I’ve had the chance to travel around quite a lot, having lived in Singapore, Shanghai, Washington DC, Southwestern France, Brussels, and I'm now back in my beloved hometown, Paris. Here are a few memories from my wanderings… The photos are all mine unless stated otherwise. I just try to find pics that match my mood of the day in my iPhoto folders, so it can be something nostalgic from 5 years ago as well as something I just shot!

Louvre Lens Museum, Lens, France - February 2014
2 months ago I went to spend a weekend in the North, to visit the branch of the Louvre museum which opened last year in the city of Lens.
Unlike the original one located in a former royal palace, this one is a striking modern building of glass, concrete and steel, designed by a famous Japanese architect.
It blends amazingly well with the sky and the white concrete surrounding it, although the outside is still lacking greenery (one year has passed since the opening, but I think bushes and trees are still too small, or maybe it was just the effect of winter)
One wonderful thing about this building is the light inside…it all comes from the natural light outside, which is quite a challenge for a ground level construction (and in the North!). It is not as bright as what we are used to, but it does feel good :D
Today I’ll be posting photos of the hall, and next will come some photos of the Time Gallery and of the neighboring city of Arras which I visited the next day!
