One of my favorite parts of taking photos during our recent trip was definitely capturing the details. We rented a wide-angle lens for the trip (which produced great overview shots like the one above), but I’m a Nifty-Fifty girl at heart, and in looking back through my photos from the trip, the detail shots definitely emerge as my favorites. Something about the way the lens captures detail and light conveys the age and beauty of the monuments better than anything.
Here are a few examples of the detail shots I took at Versailles:
And I couldn’t post about Versailles without mentioning this delicious detail: Angelina, home of the world’s best hot chocolate, has a location inside the palace. It was in the 80s the day of our visit (and the cafe wasn’t air conditioned), but I still couldn’t resist ordering a hot chocolate.
