Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

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!”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

Red Shoes

Intriguing display
Traversing walls and ceilings
Chaotic pattern

I took this photo in the mid-1990s.  This is a photo of an actual room near the tomb of Vincent Van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise, France.  These are red shoes nailed to the walls and ceilings, and in the lower left part of the photo, there is a sideways painting of some flowers in a vase.  I don’t know the meaning behind this display and have been intrigued with it ever since I looked into this room.  Distorted episode?  Distorted thinking? Does anyone know?

France Architecture in Watercolor

Inquisitive eyes
Engage in deep dialogue
Tales weathered from age

When I see old structures or trees, I wonder, “what stories do they have to tell?”  “What have they seen?”

Several years ago when I was in France, we made a road trip from Cergy, where I was staying, to the beaches of Normandy.  We stopped in a town where the distinct architecture caught my eyes.  I was intrigued by the unevenness in the design because I had never seen it before.  I don’t recall the name of the town, so I haven’t been able to find information about it from Google searches.  (In the far right corner, on the lower level of the building, you will see a sign.  The words can’t be made out, but it read “Bibliotheque Pour Tous” – per Google Translate, “Library For All”)

The original photo was scanned from a negative, and then I applied a watercolor effect using Photoshop Elements.
