Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

Versailles, a photo by Fergiemoto on Flickr.  (Click on image to enlarge).

Rigid symmetry
impeccable alignment
Unnatural nature

I took this photo several years ago at the Palace of Versailles in France.

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is:
Arranged – Sometimes you chance across things which were arranged on purpose, or on a whim – find something in your environment which was arranged by a human hand for others to enjoy!”

  1. This is an amazing photo. I’ve seen lots of photos of Versailles, but never one like this. Unique perspective, and great take on the challenge. You make me want to visit there!

  3. I’ve always wanted to visit Versailles and find something calming in well tended gardens ~ it’s like a different world. Quite utopian. I like your photo alot; I had no idea that palms were part of the gardens!

  5. We ended up at this palace a few years ago, biking from the Dordogne back to the UK. Got lost on the périphérique around Paris. No time to visit then, so it’s nice to see a bit of what we missed.

  6. Outstanding example of “Arranged.” Taught me something, too. Didn’t know that that they used potted palms at Versailles! I wonder if they did in the “Let them eat cake” days?

  9. Great photo for this week’s challenge! I love the reflections of trees and the way the angle at which the arrangements recede toward the horizon… Nice haiku as well – “unnatural nature” is a fantastic line! 🙂

  10. Wonderful choice for “arranged”, as Versailles and its grounds are so often honored for the symmetries found there! I really enjoyed this new perspective on the esteemed and admired gardens of Versailles!

  12. Excellent Challenge photo. ‘Rigid symmetry’….hmmm; you will notice there is some organic movement in the design (the half circles design)? But, yes, it is all arranged and unnatural, unless you come across, say, an aspen grove or similar. 😀

  13. I love the line ‘unnatural nature’. I am sure it took some effort to contain…for nature never really wants to be.

    What a wonderful experience, to visit Versailles, all the same!
