Chained Melody

Cemetery of the Old Chateau:

'Shadow is a colour as light is, but less brilliant; light and shadow are only the relation of two tones.'

~ Paul Cezanne


Cimetière du Vieux Château:

'L'ombre est une couleur comme la lumière, mais elle est moins brillante; lumière et ombre ne sont qu' un rapport de deux tons.'

~ Paul Cézanne


  1. In the shadow, rust is disappearing, and the chain seems to be as young as at the beginning..

  2. Looks like a lovely place Jilly, hope to see more. Quietly rusting away there... Is there still an old chateau nearby ?

  3. Owen, no there isn't an old chateau nearby - not anymore. This is in the cemetery which is called the Cemetery of the Old Chateau because there used, once, forever ago, to be a chateau there. This cemetery is above the old town. The dead always look down on the living in France, don't they? Thanks for the visit.

  4. A lovely way of thinking about it,Malyss.

  5. Beautiful shots. Fantastic composition.

    Darryl and Ruth : )

  6. Beautiful comments and beautiful stories to accompany this beautiful post.

  7. Cezanne's quotation fits the photo perfectly - he was a master of light and shadow of course.

  8. I love the close up, so much to enjoy but I always like the smaller shot that gives us a sense of the whole picture.
