Weekend Reflections: le château, les écuries...

The end of Avenue de Paris with the palace in the middle, the king's stables on the left and last week's modern street lamps are reflected in a car for James' Weekend Reflections. Photo taken about 3 weeks ago.
--------------------------------
Pour les Reflets du Weekend de James, voici le bout de l'Avenue de Paris. Au fond, le château, à gauche, les Grandes Ecuries du Roi et de part et d'autre, les lampadaires modernes de la semaine dernière. Le tout dans une p'tite voiture. Photo prise il y a environ 3 semaines.

All of the words about the King and his stables and the music makes the post a kind of dream.

You could give lessons on taking reflection shots! This one is just super, as usual. Lovely sky, also...we get those mottled clouds every once in awhile...

Hope you're back to A-1 condition!

bfarr said...

Yes, I have to agree with Jacob. You have certainly perfected your reflective photo technique.

Did Renault pay you for product placement?

Woody said...

You got double your reflection - the stables are also reflecting in the paint, cool!

T. Becque said...

You managed to get an entire image in one little car window! Pretty nice!

Olivier said...

beau reflet, et tu as un ciel magnifique (ici il est triste, cela gache un peu les photos). Bon Weekend

What a super reflection. How do you do that? The colors are so vivid and not muted. Good job. MB

I can not sleep and so a few blogs I will enjoy and try again. I love that sky with the light on the building, wonderful.

Avec sa perruque et ses hauts talons, c'est pas sur que Louis 14 puisse rentrer dans la twingo.
Très réussi ton reflet.

Si Versailles m'Etait Conté dans un parebrise. Pas mal ! et moins long....

Little did that Renault know to what creative use its rear window would be put when it came off the assembly line! Excellent capture, Ciel!

VP said...

Something new - something old. I prefer the old :-)
