My previous post was a photo from Paris, so while I’m on the subject, here are some photos from Versailles.
The Palace of Versailles is located right outside of Paris and you can get there easily by the RER train.
Versailles was huge and surprisingly beautiful. Surprisingly, because I knew it had become a mass tourism destination and wasn’t sure what it would be like.
It was early autumn, the air was crisp and my friend and I had a solid cup of hot chocolate on the way to warm us up. By solid I mean that it was hot milk mixed with a thick chocolate paste, served separately – delicious.
At Versailles, the garden was way more interesting to me than the building – in fact, I barely remember the palace. All my photos are from outside.
In the garden, the symmetry, the lines and the circles formed a captivating entity. It was extravagant, disciplined, and also a bit whimsical. It reminded me of Alice in Wonderland.
When I now look through my photo collection from that day, what pops out are the cone shaped trees. I photographed them from every angle and now, they seemed to have taken on a life of their own…
It’s like they’re playing hide-and-seek.
