A sideways glance at the royal chapel altar

Well, I've decided to make you wait a bit before I tell you what I was doing at the royal chapel on my half day off work! Instead, to put you into the mood, here's a detail of the amazing gold and marble altar!
------------------------------
J'ai finalement décidé de vous faire attendre un peu pour vous raconter ce que je faisais dans la chapelle du château mon jeudi après-midi de congés... En attendant, et pour vous mettre dans l'ambiance, voici un détail de l'incroyable autel tout de marbre et doré paré.

I was stunned by the incredible works of art and carvings and, well, everything at Versailles - just everywhere we went. The people who created all of these things were indeed geniuses of creativity.

Have a great weekend!

Exquisite detail. Je ne suis jamais allee a Versailles - malgre beaucoup de temps passe en France. Hmmm, un petit sejour a Paris pour mon anniversaire? Je vais 'travailler' sur mon mari (qui malheureusement n'est pas francophile). Vous devez m'excuser le manque d'accents - je n'arrive pas a les importer a Blogger.

The ornate details of the decor are magnificent. How lucky you are to have the opportunity to not only visit but watch a concert and leave work early. I'm jealous.
