December CDP Theme Day: Time

Good grief, I ALMOST forgot Theme Day, having been away and then sick and all that. Hence the NOT very original photo, which happens to be a not so good archive photo. It is the clock of the palace marble courtyard. Happy December to you all! Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
------------------------------------
J'ai FAILLI oublier le thème du premier du mois, ayant été absente puis malade. D'où cette photo pas très originale, pas très bonne et en plus prise il y a un certain temps. C'est l'horloge de la cour de marbre du château. Bon décembre à tous !

Quite a fancy, elegant clock! Did Queen Marie Antoinette check the TIME on that clock?!

I'd say this is a very good save. Are you feeling better?

Beautiful!!!

Woody said...

Must be something going around, I'm not feeling so hot these last few days. Don't be so hard on yourself, I think the photo is quite grand!

Bob Crowe said...

So what's to complain about the picture? The monarchy's time is past but now, in the present, we can enjoy its grand excesses.

J Bar said...

Awesome clock.

Randy said...

And I did forget until I saw your photo. Now to find a photo. I think your shot is lovely with the sunlit gold.

T. Becque said...

I agree, nice photo. I never get tired of looking at those grand buildings of yours. Hope you're feeling better!

Small City Scenes said...

Well you saved yourself there. I forgot theme day altogether---until just now.
I got no memo from my peeps---what's up folks.

Feeling a little better I hope. MB

Gilt-edged time. Lovely!!

Peut-être tirée de tes archives mais parfaite pour ce thème. On voit peu de telles merveilles ailleurs dans le monde.

Azur et or..une jolie combinaison de couleurs en ces temps grisouillants!

Pinch and a punch - for the 1st of the month! Do you do that in France?xxxx

Catherine said...

L'horloge égrenne le temps depuis......et nous ramène à un passé glorieux. Le temps est là.

VP said...

You may think that it is not original, but the clock is very elegant, on a wonderful façade.

Cezar and Léia said...

Happy December!
The facade is magnificent!

Everything was so decorative that it took me a while to spot the clock! Hope you have more time to relax this month :-)

sp pretty and elegant for theme day. feel better we just arrived home from Easter Island so we are tired . . .

Jacob said...

Kudos to you. I didn't remember at all...and I've even been commenting on "theme" day and didn't make a connection. That's what happens when you get old!

You did well, however, with an excellent photo!

B SQUARED said...

Now Ciel, I know you have been under the weather and all, but couldn't you find a "Time" theme with a little more beauty? Really!

Laurent said...

Si seulement on pouvait avoir ce soleil !!! Il neige ici à Roissy !

Birdman said...

Now, that's time!

Halcyon said...

That often happens to me too! I actually remembered this theme day though. I actually had another idea for a photo. But the weather was so terrible earlier this week that I couldn't get it. Ah well... I like your fancy clock.

LD said...

Good grief this was an afterthought?! Marvelous

EG Wow said...

AH! But you remembered it in TIME. :)

Jack said...

Beautiful clock and facade. Nice.

SRQ said...

I'm with LD. This was stuffed in the 'I Don't Know' pile? Splendid. And, I like the slant of the shadow.

Jilly said...

Stunning. Beautiful building and of course the clock for today's theme. Do hope you are fully recovered soon, Cieldequimper. xxx

Francisca said...

Ditto Bob Crowe, B Squared and EG! :-D Hope you're feeling well and less stressed. (I'm waaay behind in blogging, with work being all-consuming these days.)
