Early morning or late afternoon? Whichever, the light is marvelous.

Le tombeau de nos rois, ou du moins, de ce qu'il en reste.

Ah, it was late afternoon, and what a wonderful time with Owen and his wife as well as Peter. This is a great photo and a remembrance.

The way the light reflects upon the church is beautiful and the architecture striking. :)

V, a lovely photo with beautifully captured light. Would you believe that Lucile and I just happened to be there on Oct 16th for the memorial service in remembrance of Marie Antoinette's death. Full choir and some of the best organ music I've ever heard. We didn't know what it was all about until after the fact --- I kept hearing the name "Marie Antoinette" during the service and later found out the occasion.
