PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.
This was one of the hardest painting I have photographed. It took a while to get close to it, the light and glares on the bulletproof gas were terrible. For works of art the Louvre is great – for photography not so good.
The famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. It has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, and the most praised work of art in the world."
It is believed to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo.
It is a oil on panel, 1503–19, probably completed while the artist was at the court of Francis I.
Adjusted for inflation using the US Consumer Price Index, valued at 0 million in 1962, 0 million in 2012, it is now worth a Billion dollars, making it by far the most valued painting in the world.

On September 8th, the Federal Reserve released its latest preliminary findings of revolving consumer credit, better known as credit card debt. Credit card debt was down for the month of July 2011 by a healthy 5.2 percent. That was the largest decrease in credit card debt this year.
Unfortunately, non-revolving consumer credit went up by a whopping 11.2 percent in July. That means that the amount of auto loans, student loans, and boat loans went up steadily.
Therefore, overall consumer credit was up 5.9 percent in July which continues the 2011 trend of more consumer debt.
