June City Daily Photo Theme Day: Feet

Yesterday evening, at 8:30 pm, in front of the palace gates. No, we don't dress like that anymore! A dance ball in period costumes was being organised and gave me the opportunity to go photograph some feet, for the Daily City Photo Blog Theme Day. More information about the ball event can be found in English here. Happy Theme Day!

Hier soir, à 20 h 30 devant les grilles du château. Evidemment, les versaillais ne portent plus d'habits lumière ! C'était juste la soirée du bal de Versailles en costumes d'époque qui m'a permis d'aller à la rencontre de pieds, le thème du mois de juin des City Daily Photo Blogs. Bonne journée à thème !

Winning post for theme day, Ciel! Beautiful photos of finery on stone, highlighted by the sun in the first.

Now those are shoes, but they must be tough to polish. Happy theme day.

I wonder if they're available in a size 7-1/2. Fancy feet indeed.

That is the chicken said...

Fancy shoes...but they don;t look too comfortable!

slim said...

These shoes are works of art! How nice of them to stage a ball so you could get your post. Perfect!

Dina said...

Only you could bring us such feet.

Scott Johnson said...

I love the textures against the pattern of the cobblestones. I do hope you will post the entire costumes. Love your blog!

Jilly said...

Fabulous footwear. Wonder how comfortable? Lovely choice for today's theme and of course perfection for your blog.

Great choice, Ciel! I especially like the 1st shot.

Ce bal arrivait fort à propos, ma chère!

magiques

Buck said...

Oh, I wish I'd thought of this! We have a 'sweeping the street' ceremony where women dress in ancient costume to do their spring cleaning of the city streets. Well, one bit of street in front of the Mayor's office!

Great photo.

lv2scpbk said...

They sure are some big bows.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Fancy feet, for sure!

Men in heels. What is the world coming to?

Dusty Lens said...

Fashionable shoes

And I am glad we don't dress like this anymore. Great shot for theme day. MB

Halcyon said...

Jolies chaussures!

Happy theme day!

Dave-CostaRicaDailyPhoto.com said...

This is a classic. Perfect for Versailles.

Denton said...

These put our modern day sneakers and sandals to shame ... But I think there is a lot to be said for comfrontable shoes ... happy theme day cieldequimper.

Petrea said...

Parfait! The shoes of Louis XIV, just as I'd hoped.

Russ said...

Now those are feet! Very nice.

Laurent said...

Etais-tu au bal ?

Jacob said...

You couldn't have done better for the theme day (which I somehow missed totally!)...did they plan the ball just for you? ;-)

Terrific job.

I missed theme day and am playing catch-up 'cause we were in South Florida for our grandson's high school graduation...and then the hotel Internet went kaput!

Ugh!

Oh, and I don't think there are any piggy magnets...but I could be wrong. It happened once before! ;))

Bergson said...

des pieds made in Versailles évidement !!

Mary Helen said...

So very cool!

bfarr said...

They look like toe pinchers.

To answer your question about hiking vs swimming...I just could not wear my boots one more second. I think the flip flops add a nice touch of color : )

Hilda said...

These are just perfect, Ciel! So French, so historical, and so fun! I hope you'll post the full costumes one of these days.

PJ said...

Those are some fancy feet. Very elegant indeed.

Tash said...

Definitely the most elegant FEET today. But then, when in Versailles... :)

Carraol said...

Fancy, elegant and unique choice for this theme day.

Steffe said...

Very hip!

Catherine said...

Ouhhh ! Elégant pour un dimanche Versaillais !
Au fait, je n'ai pas reçu mon bristol.
