The Perfect Day to See Versailles

by on Feb.21, 2009, under Uncategorized

Nah, it was fun though. The inside stuff was cool at least. I wasn’t too happy about the hundreds and hundreds of trees and bushes that were pruned into geometric shapes. Made me yearn for some deep wilderness, scraggly, tall trees up in the mountains, spruce, pine, maple, aspens, where nature is far more beautiful and doesn’t want or require an army of gardeners.

    If it weren’t for the topiary, I’d think you were at a military installation on Mars! (That’s not to excuse the topiary — I absolutely agree with you. How would the gardeners like it if THEY were trimmed into some shape aesthetically pleasing to an individual from another Kingdom (Plant or Fungus…)?

    What was on the inside — gold filigree and people in weskits and wigs?

    Wow – that would make a great SF story element – people on some alien planet being pruned and kept in gardens by intelligent fungus.

    Yeah, pretty much gold ornation, royal beds, musty paintings. I tried to do another 360 degree shot of the grand hall with all the battle paintings, but Photoshop freaked out. Too much filigree overloaded it I guess.
