Cour royale et or(s)

Last Thursday, strike day, I was working from home and ran an errand at the Palace at lunchtime (uh-huh!), so I hope you will bear with me this coming week because I indulged in a few photos from the outside! This of course is the inner courtyard: the royal courtyard in the front and the marble courtyard in the distance.
------------------------------------
Jeudi dernier, jour de grève, je télétravaillais et fis une course au château entre midi et deux (oui vous avez bien lu) . Je n'ai pas su résister à l'envie de dégainer l'appareil et vous emmènerai donc pendant quelques jours en ce lieu. Voici la cour royale au premier plan avec la cour de marbre au second plan.

Oh to "run an errand at the Palace at lunchtime." I can't even imagine living so close. Thanks for sharing.

The dividing line between the peasants and the nobility. It still exists but it looks different.

I usually run to Home Depot, somehow, it's not the same.

I can't wait to see more!

I like this view. A very artistic shot.

Sorry if I gave you bad feelings with the Porte d'Orleans.

Moi itou ce matin je suis allée chez le dentiste et comme j'étais en avance et que la lumière était belle je n'ai pas hésité à dégainer (à Eragny > une 'tite maison sur la voie ferree < St Lazare). Mais j'ai passé l'objectif qui est assez petit entre les mailles du grillage.
Somptueuse grille mais je ne suis pas sûre qu'elle soit plus belle que celles de Jean Lamour qui ferment la place Stanislas à Nancy.
(Je suis chauvine et alors ?)
