Sounds like a country song: Four doors today ... You made me walk through four doors today ...

Well, I'll let you finish it! ;-)

Lovely photo with that golden glow!

Re the portable classrooms: the school district has these hauled in when a school needs more room and there is no time to build on to the school proper. They aren't great, but not too bad. I taught in one of these the last semester before I retired!

I always look forward to Tuesday evenings because I'm going to see an awesome door and this week is no exception :-)

I love the golden light on the stone! This is where the Marie Antoinette tour use to start a few years back.

Randy said...

Wonderful lighting, feels like a warm glow. Nice shot.

Halcyon said...

Cool! Four for the price of one. And the light is fabulous... so golden and glowing.

Jack said...

Four doors? You're showing off!

BTW, I ordered a life-size replica for you today. It will arrive in two years. Gotta keep working until then, at least.

Wonderful picture of doors upon doors. Such a golden glow too.

Off to see my Mother for a day or so. See you when I get back. MB

J'aime bien les lumières chaleureuses et l'enfilade en perspective qui entraine le regard..

You have a never ending source of fabulous photographic material in Versaille! xxxxx

LD said...

Does the majesty never end? It's mind boggling to consider the work that went into the creation of just this one building..

Et un escalier monumental que je ne sais comment qualifier : à trois volées dont une et un pallier ?
Ce n'est pas beaucoup un simple laquais pour accueillir le roi de Prusse

We are beyond the doorway here, this is massive and solemn. Love the light and the symmetry.
As you have seeen I posted a doorway myself today. It is small, fake, but quite realistic...

SRQ said...

Beautiful lighting. Love the archway of the fourth door.

Kaori said...

Very cool how that is lit up ;-D

You need to do a book on Versailles Light and Color, Ciel.
