If it were not for all the pickpockets inside the galleries that drive both the patrons as well as the security crazy, I woud love to spend a week or two looking at all of the incredible art. Kilgore661, Andrea and I waited in bitter cold one morning to gain entry, but was told to come back another day because of a workers strike. A few days afer our return to Houston, we read that the Louvre was shut down for an entire day due to a worker's strike due to protesting the insufficient security within the museum.

    They leave this project up to Americans and Brits who are willing and able to make the trek to Paris and who will spend a couple of hours in the Louvre doing exactly as I did. However, the pull of Paris itself is a bit greater than any museum within the city ... if you get what I am trying to say.

    Given the amount of detail in images like this and that the Louvre allows photgraphy by the public, it's strange the Louvre doesn't do its own gigapans.
