Walking Around

Just a few photos from this afternoon's stroll around town.

The Cathedral.

An angry-looking fountain in front of the old Archbishop's palace. Does he just have moss in his eyes?  Or is he really mechant?

Can you see in this guy's window?  It looks like he got the interior decorator who did Versailles.  That moulding is probably from the same era, give or take a hundred years.  I like to study the moulding around ceiling edges here and try to figure out where rooms were truncated to make smaller apartments, or where chandeliers would have been hanging.  More about that later. . .

  1. By the way, if you click on the pictures, they'll open at full size (aka, huge) in a new window. Good for spying on Mr. Louis XIV there.
