Versailles in the summer of 2005

Fountain view

I’ve been sort­ing through my things, and found some old negat­ives. I’ve already scanned the one from Italy in the late 90s, and here’s some more. (There’s a lot more to come). In 2005 I went camp­ing with my mum in Yvelines, just outside Paris. You can get into the city in about 15 mins on the RER, so it’s a good combin­a­tion of camp­ing and sight­see­ing. Versailles is just down the road too. I took a lot of photos there, but I can’t find the others right now. These are taken with an Olym­pus XA2 and some cheap expired Kodak slide film, cross-processed.


The design of the foun­tains also reminds me a lot of one of my favour­ite films, Last Year at Mari­en­bad. It’s prob­ably not to everyone’s taste, but it’s a film worth seeing.


Forbidden lawn

The sign says liter­ally, “forbid­den lawns”, which makes me laugh. Of course, it just means don’t walk on the grass there.
