An open topic for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week gives me an excuse to post this image.

It was taken in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, which is housed in a former mainline railway station. This is the inside of the clock tower. I was praying that everybody else would get out of the shot before this gentleman decided to move on and spoil the composition.

This is what it looks like from the outside:
