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!”
Traversing walls and ceilings
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?

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.
