Nuit des musées 2012

A priest is about to enter the north wing of the palace on Saturday. 19 May was the 8th European night of museums. A great many museums open for free until the small hours. So, in the coming days (or you might want to make that weeks actually!) I'm at long last taking you inside the palace! There is a detail of the hall of mirrors on Artsy Versailles. And there's an update about the Blogger GUI here.

Samedi au château, un prêtre s'apprête à entrer dans l'aile du Nord. C'était la 8ème nuit des musées européenne, durant laquelle de nombreux musées ouvrent leurs portes gratuitement et jusque tard dans la nuit. Donc, dans les jours, voire les semaines à venir, je vous emmène enfin au château ! Il y a un détail de la galerie des glaces sur Artsy Versailles.

Let's see - how many priests are left in France? I'm glad you are taking us inside the palace. It's been some years since we've been there.

J'aime bien cette photo: outre le fait qu'il y ait des bancs (Ü), elle est totalement hors du temps, et pourrait avoir été prise à n'importe quelle époque.
On attend la suite avec impatience, tu vois... :o)

As I recall it would take one until the early morning of several days to see all there is to see in the Palace or the other museums.

I shall look forward to your interior shots.

BTW, I was trying to picture you in physiotherapy, trying to stand on one leg with your head tucked in behind your shoulders...it was a funny sight! ;-)

Une queue de presque 1 km devant le musee (egyptien) que nous avions decide de visiter. Restau a la place, comme c' etait pareil partout ailleurs. Chouette photo, ceci dit.

Love the contrast of the black and golden. Great shot, Ciel.
I'm always afraid museums are too crowded on those special nights so I stay at home. :-)

Dina said...

I like his stride.
Priests need museums too.

Regina K said...
