March Theme Day: Glass


I'm actually not sure this isn't crystal... It's one of those chandeliers that you've already seen from beneath, in Saint Louis cathedral.
--------------------------
Je ne suis pas sûre que ce ne soit pas du cristal... C'est l'un des chandeliers de la cathédrale Saint Louis.

So beautiful. Reminds me of the chandeliers in the Hall of Mirrors at Palais de Versailles.

Bob Crowe said...

Well, if it is in St. Louis Cathedral, crystal is perfectly appropriate. And isn't crystal a pure form of glass?

It's beautiful and reminds me of many I see in the South of France hotel lobbies.

Saint Louis, c'est aussi une grande cristallerie alors on va dire que oui, d'accord? Passe un bon dimanche, Sam (plus court que Ciel de Quimper!)

The way it's glinting in the light it could be crystal. Very pretty.

les 2 derniers billets sont très bons j'aime beaucoup le reflet de l'église dans la vitre du restaurant comme ça les gourmands qui auront oublié leur devoir religieux auront tout de même mis les pieds à l'église...

One of the best way for glas is prettying into crystal. I can see the luminous power of crystal in your shot.

I have trouble getting my posts to come up on your site but want to tell you that your comments on our site are appreciated. This is our first theme day and we're enjoying every picture. Your chandelier photo is fabulous.

Louis XV n'aurait pas pu s'offrir du cristal ?
Le cristal joue avec la lumière, magnifique pour le thème d'aujourd'hui.
Bon dimanche, Ciel de Quimper.

So pretty!! Happy theme day :)

Denton said...

The photo I shared for theme day was also crystal ... I understand crystal to be a form of glass and it photographs better than glass ... happy theme day.

It's a shimmering beauty, Ciel, within that lovely cathedral and the blue tint really sets it off. Nice choice for the theme too!

I bet when light goes through the crystals there are tiny rainbows all over the ceiling and walls.
