Wordless Wednesday: Comparing Paris and Cleveland. Say What?


The pyramid in front of Louvre in Paris, France

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio
The same architect,  I.M.. Pei, did both
I find the contrast of  locations surprising.
Cool, but surprising. :)

  3. That is really wild when you think about it. I wonder if the same guy built the one that used to be in Memphis?

  5. I think that glass is such a great material to use in different areas as they adapt to their environment! Amazing structures =)

  6. That is actually a pretty funny comparison. Close up, I would never be able to tell which was which!

  7. Wow that is so interesting! Love the photos.

  8. Love this comparison and yet I have not seen either in person though myself.

  9. Looks the same to me. Good thing they don't speak French in Cleveland.

  10. Such an interesting comparison! I think I'd rather visit Paris, though. We had our honeymoon there!

    Thanks for linking up over at Toronto Teacher Mom!

  11. It really does look the same! I haven't been to either, but would love to go to both!

  12. That's cool! I really wish I could travel more. Maybe when my kids are older.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Good one! I wasn't expecting this at all. Then again I have never been to Cleveland, so I didn't know what it was going to be :-)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ha ha! I love this! Who would have guessed?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow!
    What presence of mind to be able to go back n forth, Rosey.

    Honestly never been to paris or Cleveland to be able to connect the dots, but you have increased my knowledge :)

    Pleasure to have you on board!

  16. Ha, ha, I noticed this too, though the Louvre one is more elegant somehow.

    ReplyDelete
  17. What, that is crazy? Crazy cool! I never in a million years would have thought there'd be a connection.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That is too cool! I had no idea that the same architect did both of these pyramids.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Interesting comparison of Paris and Cleveland. Not many have compared Ohio and France in the same blog post.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Interesting. The Seattle Sky Dome and the Rogers Centre in Toronto are quite similar too but not as similar as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Pyramid in France.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Kind of odd being in two totally different spots, yet the same. But I guess that's his claim to fame

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a cool comparison, both fantastic pyramids as well! x

    ReplyDelete
  23. Good one. Both great pyramids

  24. No way! Great comparison shots! I never would've thought...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can see the similarity! That's a good catch!

  26. Did he build the pyramids in Egypt, too?

    1. He's not old enough to take credit for that, Binky. ;)

  27. I've been to both cities. Even with this comparable architecture, Paris has an ancestral beauty. Cleveland has the America beauty.

    1. Right! I agree. And I like them both equally. :)

      Delete
  28. Wow! That is interesting that both are so similar. I have never visited either, but that architect's work is very cool to look at.

    ReplyDelete
  29. How interesting! I've never been to either place, but I think I'd prefer Paris ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those are beautiful pictures. What great comparisons to both the pyramids.

  31. That is quite interesting to say the least! Guess we can stay right here and see the pyramid designs of this architect!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm pretty sure Parisians would be offended at the contrast (they can be a bit snooty), but I think you have a good eye to catch the comparison!
    Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/02/bathing-in-bubble.html

  33. That is pretty cool Rosey... although I would still love to see the one in Paris... mainly because I want to travel all over Europe :)

    Thank you for the sweet comment... I don't like my picture being taken but I also realize I should for my family xox

  36. Wow that's amazing what great shots! Who knew, I didn't at all! Very cool. I haven't been to either, would love to!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow! So similar! I have to say, I'd rather go to Paris, though LOL

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love both cities! I love bigger cities and would love to live in either if I had the chance one day.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Clever - but you needed to show the lake in the background! As a former NE Ohioan, we thank you for the positive attention and for the fact that you didn't mention that the river caught fire in Cleveland at one time. That has been over done...

    1. There was a big beautiful ship out there on the water too. I got a picture for our photo album. :)

  40. That is really interesting that the same architect did both. What a vast difference in locations!

    ReplyDelete
  41. That's so neat! I've been to the Louvre in Paris, but not the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Did you know, the Statue of Liberty was built in France?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I did know that, and that the architect of the two pyramids in this post was awarded the Medal of Liberty AT the Statue of Liberty. Another small but fun connector...almost like the Kevin Bacon game, right? :)

  42. I love that we have the Rock and Roll HOF so close and that it was designed by such a famous architect! It is so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would love to visit the ROR Hall of Fame...and Paris! Thanks for sharing with the Thursday Blog Hop!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Paris is on my vacation wish list. I wanna go so bad! The Rock & Roll HOF looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow. I can't decide which one looks better....
    But that is so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've never been to either, but would love to go to both!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow, this is is similar. I like how you found out this similarity

    ReplyDelete
  48. That is really neat! I'd never think of those 2 cities having anything in common. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  49. When we went to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame there was a little vendor set up selling prints of the buildings. I had no idea what it was or who they were at the time. The line was fairly long and we kept walking. Now that I see this post, I know now what it was.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have never been to Paris, France. I have been to the Paris in Las Vegas and also to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It is a Cleveland Must See!

    ReplyDelete
  51. That is a very cool comparison. Have you been to both places? (I haven't been to either...I was just curios).

    1. We have been to, and liked both, very much. :)

  52. What a cool comparison... I never would h ave thought they were comparable at all!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Interesting comparison! never been to either.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Who would have guessed at that comparison. I agree, pretty cool! I've actually been to Paris, but never to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame - go figure!

    ReplyDelete
  55. What a neat comparison. I've been to Paris and would love to see the Ohio one.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Very interesting - and pyramids seem to have such an appeal - I love the way you shared this on your' Wordless Wednesday'

    ReplyDelete
  57. That's interesting! Sure makes it feel like a smaller world doesn't it? :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. How neat. I never knew these existed in both places.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow, I was going to say there is no comparison, but that is so cool. I was in the Rock n. Roll hall of Fame, and I'll tell you it's so very cool & the same architect did it? That's even cooler. Thanks for sharing I can't wait to tell the hubby! hehehe Have a great weekend my friend. Sorry for being so late, but better late than never I always say~! HUGS

    ReplyDelete
  60. Very cool. I would imagine that might be the only similarity but I have never been to Paris, so I really cannot judge :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Nice ;)
    Marc would LOVE to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!!
