Wednesday Postcard- Versailles


Wednesday Postcard this week is The Estate of Versailles, encompassing the Palace and its truly magnificent grounds, the Trianon and the Petite Trianon.The grandeur and opulence is quite breathtaking, I have tried to
capture this in my photos.Unfortunately ,due to the number of visitors in the famous Hall of Mirrors , this as anyone who has visited in recent times knows, is almost impossible. I never cease to be amazed at those who only take selfies and never stop to appreciate the beauty around them.
Gripe over, please enjoy a peek at Versailles through my eyes.

    1. Thank you Connie. I must agree with Marea, you admire the grandeur of it all but also can understand why the French Revolution ensued.

  3. I think your photographs capture the opulence very well. Versailles is a place that continues to haunt me. It is both dazzling and disturbing. Thought I'd share a novel that brings that era alive: Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran. I really enjoyed this book. Think you will, too.
