6 ans ! A vous de jouer !

Au bord du Canal Versalis Vice Versailles
Today VDP is six years old. VDP won't blah blah on about how it seems like a lifetime since the first post on a wickedly cold winter day in 2009 but is looking forward to the next year! Once again, to thank all of you who take the time to visit, comment and interact with the author of this blog, VDP is having a prize draw. First prize is the above 10x21 cm (3.93x8.26") photograph by local photographer Versalis Vice whose first exhibition you witnessed on this blog about a fortnight ago (here and here). The photograph, titled  'alongside the canal' (i.e. the grand canal at Versailles palace) comes unframed and of course without watermark. Second prize is a cotton shopping bag sporting one of Didier Paquignon's paintings which were exhibited last year at Lambinet Museum. You had seen the exhibition here. Please take a moment to read the rules and leave a comment on this post before 23 hours 59 (CET) on 4 February. The draw will take place shortly afterwards (though perhaps not in the middle of the night!) Thank you again!

Aujourd'hui VDP a six ans. VDP ne va pas blablater sur l'éternité que ça fait depuis le premier billet, posté dans la froidure de 2009 mais a hâte de voir ce qui se passera cette année ! Une fois de plus, pour remercier tous ceux d'entre vous qui prennent le temps de vous arrêter sur ce blog, de commenter et d'interagir avec son auteur, VDP organise un petit tirage au sort. Le premier prix, c'est un tirage 10x21 cm de la très belle photo ci-dessus de Versalis Vice (qui vient d'ouvrir une boutique en ligne par ici), intitulée "au bord du canal". Vous avez récemment vu le vernissage de la première expo de ce jeune photographe du coin, c'était ici et . Il s'agit, bien évidemment, des bords du grand canal du château de Versailles. Il n'y aura naturellement pas de filigrane sur la photo qui n'est pas non plus encadrée. Le second prix, c'est ce sac en coton sur lequel est imprimée l'une des toiles de Didier Paquignon. Vous aviez vu son expo au Musée Lambinet sur le blog l'an passé, c'était ici. Allez, il ne vous reste plus qu'à jeter un œil sur les règles du jeu et à laisser un commentaire sur ce billet avant 23 h 59 (GMT+1) le 4 février. Le tirage au sort aura lieu dans la foulée (quoique pas en pleine nuit !) Merci encore à tous !

Well, you really take the prize. Six years! Congrats on a job well done! I remember that stand of trees; in fact I took several artsy photos of it myself. :)

6 ans ! what a maturité ! Je connais ce blog depuis beaucoup moins longtemps mais j'ai la chance de connaître la responsable de ces publications passionnées et passionnantes, une jolie rencontre qui a provoqué de jolis échanges ! Longue vie à ces fenêtres ouvertes sur les coins connus et les recoins moins connus de cette belle ville finalement assez méconnue et pleine de surprises !

Congratulations on your 6th year. I look foward to your posts. They always transport me to this wonderful place you call home.

Jack said...

Six years! Congratulations, Ciel. You do not seem to be slowing down at all, as a blogger, although you do have a nasty habit of taking spills that slow you down, as a person. Be careful in year 7, OK? (Love your friend's peaceful photo.)

Bob Crowe said...

Congratulations to you for you dedication and hard work. Having gotten to know you a bit, I see how your photos reflect your love of your town.

Splendid photo, by the way. It looks like a line of very trim sheep standing at attention.

James said...

It's been an impressive six year run. I think I discovered your blog in March or April of 2009. I lurk and look more than I comment but I've enjoyed your blog over the years.
Congrats!!!

Karl Demetz said...

Gratuliere, Ciel ! Sechs Jahre sind eine lange Zeit, die meisten Blogs haben eine viel kürzere Lebensdauer.
Nun beginnen für Dich die nächsten sechs Jahre :-)
Mach so weiter, mit viel Ausdauer und Fleiß wie bisher, ich freue mich schon auf viele weitere schöne Fotos von Versailles!

Congratulations on six years! I hope I win the bag this year. I was so jealous of Grace in Perth last year. :)

@ Olivier : rhooo mais tu me donnes des idées pour les autres jours ! ;-)

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Awesome! I don't know how long I've been visiting you regularly, but enjoy it immensely and I learn a lot about Versailles.

Please don't think that was a shameless suck up just to win ;-)

cieldequimper said...

@ Wayne: of course not!

Francisca said...

Well... six years, VDP... so you're a few months older than me... but you kept it up, while I had to reluctantly bow out (for a while?)... I had to sign in just to come congratulate you on your perseverance. I know it can be a roller coaster of a ride, this regular posting. May you keep enjoying the ride and gifting your followers with lovely images of Versailles, such a magnificent twon! Cheers! À la vôtre!

Gemma Wiseman said...

I will never be able to see Versailles, but, through your eyes, the romance of yesterday and today lives on. (The closest I get to Versailles is teaching my senior students about the French Revolution.) Congrats on your your blogging milestone.
