Statue at Versailles
So, because of my strange experience, I don't actually know if you're supposed to pay an entrance fee to enter the grounds of the Palace of Versailles. My friends and I happened to get there just as they were kicking everyone out. Entering the grounds was like swimming upstream against wave after wave of human beings. I kept thinking someone was going to instruct us to turn around at any minute.
The beauty of our timing was that the sun was also beginning to set on the grounds. The sun was reflecting off the windows and giving everything a nice orange glow. I just quickly went around the gardens happily snapping away. This statue was just one of many that I ran into and photographed.
