Weekend Reflections: le vitrail et la fleur de lys

Stained glass chandelier Versailles cathedral
Friday, yay! And a holiday in France! So it's time for Weekend Reflections. The stained glass of the baptismal fonts side chapel of Saint-Louis cathedral is sort of reflected and magnified in a chandelier (with a fleur-de-lys). Yeah, I know, this is cheating a bit.

Youpi, c'est vendredi et en plus c'est un jour férié ! Le vitrail de la chapelle des fonts baptismaux de la cathédrale Saint-Louis est vu par le prisme d'un lustre avec fleur de lys. Les Reflets du Weekend sont par ici !
