November CDP Theme Day: Heights

Are we really in November already? This month's theme in the City Daily Photo blogging community isn't an easy one for VDP but on Saturday, I happened to go to the palace and saw Saint-Louis neighbourhood 'from above'. Well, sort of. And then I remembered an archive shot of the royal chapel. Four of the twenty-eight apostles and evangelists that adorn the roof have no fear of heights whatsoever as they tower above the palace! Happy November and go and have a look at all the other interpretations of today's theme by clicking here! Ah and there is a night reflection on Artsy Versailles.

Sommes-nous vraiment déjà en novembre ? Le thème de la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo pour ce nouveau mois est: "hauteurs, sommets"... Pas évident à Versailles mais samedi votre servitrice dévouée s'est rendue au château et a vu le quartier Saint-Louis "d'en haut", si je puis dire. Et puis, elle s'est souvenue de cette photo d'archive de la chapelle royale : quatre des vingt-huit apôtres et évangélistes qui ornent sa toiture n'ont pas le vertige ! Pour voir plein d'autres interprétations du thème de par le monde, cliquez ici ! Ah et il y a un reflet de nuit sur Artsy Versailles.
