Outside of Paris, at Versaille, there is the most romantic country hamlet ever built. It was Marie Antoinette’s “getaway” from the pressures of palace life, and there she could dress up like a shepherdess, and cavort with her sheep and ducks…

    A fairytale image Dawne, very pretty …and Marie Antoinette again !

  • Thanks, Sandra. Yes, she does fascinate me. When I saw her cell at the Conciergerie, I had an epiphany of sorts. I pictured her repenting with great remorse. I hope to see her in Heaven someday!!

    hauntingly beautiful- nicely done with the swan in the foreground and even the fence adds to the scene

  • Thank you, Klaus. Although I often add elements to a photo to enhance it, in this case I did not. The swan and fence were actually there. That moon, however…!!

    You must be a very romantic person to produce work like this. Totally amazing!

  • Thanks very much, AJ. Yes, I fear I am sometimes too romantic…
