Elegante in its simplicity. Soft, afternoon light?

Glad to know you like dogs. I don't like all dogs, either. Most, though!

elle est belle cette porte orange avec la lumiere qui tombe dessus, et j'aime bien cette croix si simple

You can't go wrong with a beautiful, warm wooden door, great sun/shade effect Ciel!

Jack said...

In comparison with many you show us from Versailles, this is pretty simple, but it is still appealing.

Sharon said...

This is very beautiful, Ciel. You took it at exactly the right time of day to get that wonderful shadow.

The shadows playing around the doorway create a beautiful sense of mystery!

An understated but lovely doorway.

Randy said...

Nice shadow and light.

Now this shot is a very different visual approach. It could be Hispanic architecture in New Mexico.

This looks more like the type of design one might expect from a Scandinavian architect, not a church in France.

une porte bien trop simple pour VDP

Cergie said...

Et la porte (sobre et chaleureuse) était-elle fermée ou ouverte ?
Notre petite fille de deux ans adore vérifier la sonorité des lieux de culte en poussant de tous petits cris mais la dernière toute petite chapelle isolée dans laquelle nous sommes entrés dans la Drôme était occupée par un homme priant, alors nous sommes vite ressortis...

The door is warm and inviting, the shadows are long and mysterious.

This is clearly the nicest part of the church, at least on the outside!

Attention à habiter Versailles, on peu facilement y perdre la tête...MDR

Halcyon said...

Simple, but very nice. The light is perfect.

Plus douce que la realite de la vie, c'est bien.

The long angled shadows add to the angular surfaces of this chapel. Your shots of this simple structure are creative and interesting.

I love the play of sunlight and shadows. They make the picture more interesting.

Becky said...

Wow, this looks quite modern! I like the shadow and the brightly painted door.

JM said...

Absolutely lovely!

VP said it. One would certainly never guess this chapel was in Versailles!

Fantastic light and quite a stylish entrance.
