July City Daily Photo Theme Day: Upside down

Anish Kapoor mirror Versailles palace
July and it's sizzling hot in Versailles! A heatwave is upon us (104° F/40°C forecast for today and already 90° in the bedroom last night), as is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo blogging community. These pictures were taken at the palace last Sunday, VDP was literally roasting but hey! Anish Kapoor's summer exhibit in the palace gardens provided the perfect upside down pictures! More to come about the exhibition in a few days, in the meantime, have a look at all the takes on the Theme by clicking here and enjoy July!

Juillet et il fait une chaleur à crever à Versailles ! La canicule s'est abattue sur nous, tout comme le thème du premier du mois dans la communauté des blogueurs City Daily Photo. VDP a rôti dimanche dernier au château mais les miroirs de l'expo Anish Kapoor lui ont permis de prendre des photos "à l'envers" et donc "upside down" pour satisfaire au thème ! Pour voir des interprétations du monde entier cliquez ici ! VDP vous souhaite un bon mois de juillet !

Glorious, VDP!

Perfect theme day shot.

I don't think the distortion would make people feel any cooler. That concave shape might concentrate the sun's rays and singe your hair.

Ha! Excellent. Clever one.

Perfect, Ciel!

Stuart said...

What a perfect opportunity. And thanks for posting the 2nd shot as I couldn't quite figure it out. We're roasting down here too. And no end in sight.

Kate said...

What a fun exhibit! Stay out of the sun; heat stroke would turn YOU upside down!

Sharon Anck said...

It doesn't get more perfect than this for the theme. I can't wait to see more.

Wayne said...

Simple, but very effective. I see Anish like these reflective works of art.

Linda said...

This is terrific!
