Le temple de l'amour

Still some photos of the Petit Trianon outing in August! This is the Love Temple, built by architect Richard Mique and standing on a small island opposite the Petit Trianon castle. The statue in the middle? Patience! (Actually, I had already shown you this but from further away).
--------------------------
Encore des photos du Petit Trianon prises en août ! Voici le temple de l'amour, construit par Richard Mique. Il s'élève sur une petite île en face du château du Petit Trianon. La statue au milieu ? Patience ! (A vrai dire, je vous l'avais déjà montré, mais de plus loin).

Hey! I am the first one here for a change. Nice angle on that photograph, Ciel. Youbenefitted from a colorful sky, didn't you?

Jacob said...

I really like the way you framed this...and it's almost like there are two different skies up there. Beautiful shot!

I'm guessing Mr. Mique was trying to send a message? That patience and love go hand in hand, don't they?

I'm chuckling a little, because 'Love Temple' sounds like something out of a bad movie, not a beautiful place to visit.

How beautiful. Hope your weekend is going well.

Love Temple, eh? So if I stood in the middle and a handsome cowboy came strolling by we would fall in love--immediately. Why yes, you say. MB

A statue of Patience in such a beautiful scenery, this is interesting and unusual.

Tu as très joliment cadré ta photo avec les feuilles des arbres.. Et tu as aussi très bien rendu le charme de l'amour: la patience, la discrétion, l'attente, qui font monter le désir..de voir enfin la statue! :)

I just love the name Love Temple, and to have a statue named Patience standing in the middle is oh, so appropriate!

@ all: the statue isn't patience... You, however, have to be patient and wait until tomorrow!

Kaori said...

Wow that's a fabulous sky! I was just going to ask what the statue was doing...but I guess I'll just wait until tomorrow ;D
