It is a beautiful hall. Your love of the hall and its music comes through.

That is just amazing. I would not know where to look first. What a beautiful night.

Everything is so rich and...grand...which I guess is fitting for a palace! :)

L'opulence indeed!! So beautiful we could never imagine it here. The wild west could never be civilized. LOL MB

Yes, it is. There's so much of it I sometimes forget how magnificent each piece is. The time and money it took to create that are hard to imagine.

I like how you put it: exhilarating opulence! A very long voyage from here to le béton brut!

Remarkably magnificent!
Re. our London weekend reflection, that building was somewhere near the Gherkin, if I remember well.
God bless you!
Cezar
P.S.: lovely cushion, thanks for the gift!

Quand on en face à ce point là de perfection, de beauté, de richesse, où chaque recoin est une oeuvre d'art en soi, on se sent vraiment humble!

I love all the details. They really don't make stuff like they used to!!

Rob and Mandy said...

Les couleurs sont superbes!

What can one say after "exhilarating opulence"? You hit the nail right on the head!

Beautiful views of this over-the-top opulence... I love the angle of your first shot as you look up into the chandelier.

Bises,

Absolutely amazing how the rich live/lived. I'm reading War and Peace right now, and am struck dumb by the lifestyle of some people with a lot of money.
