SUNDAY IN THE SHADE AT SCEAUX, PARIS

A Sunday escape to the suburbs of Paris and the Parc and Chateau at Sceaux.

The sun was out but the shadows looked better in black and white…

Parc de Sceaux is located just outside Paris, via RER B, and the Petit Chateau, rebuilt in 1850’s (originally constructed in the 15th century and later owned by JB Colbert, minister of the Navy, before it was confiscated during the French Revolution) is now the Musee de l’ille de France.

    1. Thanks Jane, I took some colour shots but they proved a little dull in comparison to the shadow and light of the black and whites. Much more inspiring!!

    1. Thanks Merril. It was a dramatic day in and out of the sun last Sunday, mainly hiding from the sun, the Irish can only tan so much!!! 😂

  1. Been a good many years since I’ve been to Sceaux. Picturing in my mind the colors, the trees, the lines. I much, much prefer the black and white.
    Lovely.

    1. It was so odd to be taking the black and white shots on such a beautiful sunny day but it’s been summer here since may, if not the end of April. Black and white needed a moment in the sun!! 😂🤗🤗
