All Things Bright and Beautiful.....

Dear Paris - thank you so much for your kind comments & voting for my post in the comp:-).
I used to live in Belgium and that picture of the cars on the bridge crossing the river takes me back there immediately. I can feel the tradition and weather calling out from that picture right to me.
Your photos speak.

Casey

Gorgeous photos! They make Amboise look good even on a rainy day. I love the way the reds and oranges stand out against the gray. Lucky you didn't run into the guard that asked Laura and I if we had asked permission to sketch in the castle! (we ignored her and she went away) May I link to you from my blog?

tinker

Such intricate carvings, sculpture, architecture - just amazing! Thank you for sharing some of the wonderful sights with us, Tara. ~xo

artzyjudie

Wonderful photos! AMAZING architecture! It's always a pleasure to visit your place. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure glad you didn't see those "no photo" signs! ;)

marja

What a feast for the eyes. Thanks so much I love casles and this one is magnificent. The once i have seen were along the rheine in germany and some in holland. Intriguing buildings.

beautiful photos Tara. I have been thoroughly enjoying your travels vicariously. I've never been to this part of France and now would LOVE to. I shared your pics with my daughter Martha........she then went to get her own camera to show me the photos she took when she was in Quebec City....we compared some of the cathedral shots of this post and of York and were quite amazed at the sameness of the cathedral in Quebec.....now I'm wondering if the cathedral there is a replica of a particular cathedral in Europe.....which is often the case.

Lovely..............

What incredible photos! They make me want to hop on a plane. I am in awe of the artisans who produced these incredible buildings and their interiors. We see the finished creations - when you know it must have taken many, many years to complete all of this.

Laura

What amazing, amazing photos!! I've added a couple of them to my iphoto library, just so I can remind myself and David why I love Amboise so much. Even on a rainy, cold day, the beauty is evident. Btw, I never saw any signs saying you couldn't photograph things, but then, I wouldn't, would I ;D?
When Casey and I were sketching there last week, most of the guards were very friendly, even heaping more logs on the fire and turning on lights for us. One guard, however, was exceedingly officious and tried to get us to produce permits to draw. Hmmmph. Not going to, and didn't, happen.

rochambeau

Thank you Tara for taking me on such nice travels!
That Gothic St Hubert Chapel is something else! Wow!

stephanie

I feel I have visited through you wonderful eye. The detail here is simply mind boggleing!

V-Grrrl

I visited Amboise the summer after I arrived in Belgium. It's been a delight to re-visit it here and see it in another season.

Marilyn

Wow, what photos! Thanks for sharing them. re: no photos signs...I've often snapped pix in galleries and a friend will say, "Can you TAKE pictures in here?" ... to which I reply, "Well, I don't see any signs saying that I can't!" :)

cherie

The town of Amboise is so picturesque..I would love to see it first hand. You find the best places to visit Tara, and you manage the most incredible visual journeys. Excuse me, but why does David "read"?? Does he not understand that those signs do not apply to you?? You have a mission to educate the rest of us. Ah..husbands!! Rules!!! LOL!!
