Antiques

At the very beginning of VersaillesDailyPhoto, I took you to the antiques district, to a little passage you can see by clicking here. I've been there since, I like wandering around the charming courtyards and this window with what I would call absolutely typical Versaillais taste caught my eye.

Au tout début de VersaillesDailyPhoto, je vous emmenais dans le quartier des antiquaires par ici. J'y retourne souvent pour le plaisir des yeux et cette vitrine m'a attiré l'oeil avec son lot de meubles au goût typiquement versaillais.

You have the inside-outside thing going here again, which I enjoy. With such gorgeous antiques, the images says look but do not touch.

Jacob said...

Not my kind of furnishings...but I do enjoy looking at them as I enjoy looking at your wonderful photos!

This is a great shot full of contrasts and reflections in and out, Ciel. Yes, that passageway image is a favorite of mine.

Looks like you can easily envision being a queen there.

That chest of drawers looks like a wedding cake! Can I have a slice, please? ;-)

Colors and composition of your photo follows the cieldequimper-style. What is the secret of your exposure technique?

PS. Christmas is so far... please do not want that I bumble "Schneegloeckchen" for a year ;-)

@Juergen: I have no exposure technique!
