Paris from the Arc de Triomphe (S. Garagnani)

As part of my job and research work, I'm always into the digital representation of the built environment, even when off-duty. It's mostly a state-of-mind attitude, I suppose. That's probably why I cannot behave like ordinary visitors especially when I am a tourist on holidays for the first time in Paris!

Dealing historically a lot with point clouds, I simply couldn't help taking pictures aimed at the 3D reconstruction of some amazing details I found at the Louvre museum and at the Sainte-Chapelle. Ok, ok... I couldn't bring my laser scanning equipment on holidays but, damn, my smartphone was with me! So, thanks to Luisa's patience, I spent a little time heavily photoshooting the Venus de Milo and a metope of the Parthenon, plus a very nice decoration placed at the Sainte-Chapelle first floor entrance. 

Click on the images above to go straight to the point clouds or enjoy this little gallery:
