La "fresque", suite

The palace gardens are depicted near the side entrance of the supermarket I was showing you yesterday.
---------------------------------
Les jardins du château sont représentés près de l'entrée secondaire du supermarché que je vous montrais hier.

I have seen this place, but I'm not sure. Nice idea to post the detail.

The gardens architectural style looks like it was a very spiritual place that collected much energy to take in and feel.

Tomorrow, more of the Palace on the other side of the building?

I like and it is interesting, but do you know if there's a special reason the store posts these pictures?

As I say over and over, "Only in France!". Supermarket carts with that wonderful mural. Oh my. That's yet another reason why France, j'adore!!!

Les caddies sont la pour rappeler que c'est un supermarche. Jolie fresque.

It certainly makes the shopping experience a little better.

Now that is a pleasure of living around Versailles that we cannot match. What could we have on the supermarket walls? Perhaps scenes from the 1904 World's fair and Olympics, when St. Louis was still an important place.

Oooooh, what a great shot! I love those fantastic shopping carts in the foreground. Very interesting mural too.

unique picture with the shopping carts next to the fresco. Re: your comment on my blog. I so hope you can find the documentary. I bought my copy on ebay, I think or through amazon.com. In any case every country tries o sugar-coat its history. Also the victors write the history books. The footage in this movie and the interviews are special. I don't want to spoil the surprise in case you find it.

Interesting shot. the shopping carts look out of place when it is the other way around. MB

How wonderful the juxtaposition of the carts and the arts.

Looks nothing like our supermarkets.

@ Bergson : tu peux toujours essayer...

@ Jacob : just to make the place look good I think.

I love the idea of art on a grocery store. Wonderful.

It's just too bad they stuck the picture next to the carts. But I guess that way a lot of people look at it, although they probably don't really realize what it is.

I think it's great to have this 'frescos' in a supermarket!

An unexpected visual treat - one wouldn't think of a supermarket chain doing this.

nice reflections while at the supermarket.

Strange inconguity, but a nicer thing to look at than ads, as they might have done.
