I had a thought; there’s a new Dan Brown due out in a few weeks time. The Lost Symbol, I believe it’s called.
I went to Paris for work last summer and took the following photo while walking round the outside of the Louvre; time didn’t permit entry. I was trying to capture the inverted pyramid where Dan Brown asserted Mary Magdalene’s remains were buried. I only got a good photo of my shadow.
But that’s the way of it. In trying to capture certain things, we see our shadow more clearly than anything else.
