Once more, with people

Here's another shot of the gallery at Chenonceau that spans the river, this time with people in it. I crouched down toward the floor to snap it. A simple change in elevation can make a big difference in the feel of a photo.

People add some scale to the room. Chenonceau, September 2011.

The "empty" gallery photo that I posted previously was from March 2006. This one is from September 2011, more than five years later. I think that was the last time I was inside the château.


  1. I lov ed the empty gallery, but this does give it scale and perspective. Both great photos.

  2. I really like this angle. There is a statue of a woman at one end of this gallery with the inscription, La Reine, C’est Moi. It made me chuckle.

  3. mitch, I like them both.

    bettyann, was it Catherine de Médicis?


Tell me what you think!
