Above: The grand Château de Versailles as seen from the gardens, July 12, 2013.
It’s time for more images from the extravagant Château de Versailles. If you missed either Part One or my Hall of Mirrors post check them out for more history and a more complete tour. This post fits in particularly well with the Weekly Photo Challenge – Grand.
Replica of “The Crowning of Empress Josephine by Napoleon in Notre-Dame of Paris on 2 December 1804.” Throngs of tourists blur make it difficult to tell where the life-sized painting begins and ends.
Long hallways, lovely light and matching tourists.
Practice being royalty by looking down on other people.
Plenty of fancy molding and decorations.
