Aimez la tonalite d'or. Comment avez-vous fait cela ? J'aime particulierement la dame s'asseyant sur le rebord !

Re your question on Florida Fotos: I would guess that building was, in fact, a church at one time, but don't know that for sure.

The architectural detailing is SO pretty.

Wow, how do they keep it so immaculate?

Jack said...

Just look at those rich colors, Ciel! Like in a dream.

Wow! The detail is amazing!

I love the colors, Ceil, and the detail is terrific! What a great capture for the day! Enjoy your weekend!

That is really colorful.

If one thinks in terms of maintenance, nothing would ever get accomplished, would it? The balustrades and the figures just below the recent renovated details are a great contrast. You can barely see them because of the gold paint.

Beautifully shown here Ciel! I really hope your skies in Versailles are as blue as this this weekend!

Now that looks regal for sure.

The sky doesn't look promising, but it is an excellent background for this!
