La danseuse devant le grand canal

Sorry, I'm probably boring you with these but I just loved the light and shadows. Note the canal seen through the window of the second shot! That's the view from the hall of mirrors!

Désolée, vous mourez sans doute d'ennui avec ces photos mais j'ai beaucoup aimé le jeu d'ombres et de lumières. Notez le grand canal visible par la fenêtre de la deuxième photo ! C'est la vue depuis la galerie des glaces !

No, I couldn't get tired of these, Ciel, they are beautiful captures and certainly not something I see everyday!! Wonderful series! I'm just glad you've shared them!! Hope you're ready for a new week!!

Your first photo is very nice. The woman's dress and the sculpture are fine echoes of each other.

I love seeing the canal in the second shot!

I love the way you captured the light in these photos.

I like the first one best. The light is more subtle and the woman seems to longingly gaze out the window.

Not at all! I caught some magical light, makes everything very dreamlike indeed - could be another film still!

Linda said...

I like the light too!

You're so right, the light is perfect, and I do enjoy a view of a body of water.

Well, I was there and saw the canal through the window but I didn't see these beautiful women and beautiful costumes, so you can keep showing them as long as you like! The light is gorgeous - must have been toward late afternoon.

Ciel....! Versailles and boring just do not belong together in the same sentence :) these are tres elegant images.

This is the fascinating mind of Versailles, for me anyway.

All this looks so far from our times...

No, no, no! You are not boring me, it's lovely to be reminded of lovely Versailles again. I've missed your daily blogs! Janex

I'm definitely not bored. The photos are gorgeous, as are the costumes.
