May Kwento Ako #61 : A few stories and my photographs Chateaux Vaux le Vicomte

By the entrance of the Chateaux Vaux Le Vicompte

I am so thankful for this Video from YouTube’s worldfrombeyondHD for enlightening me with more details about this fabled and storied chateaux. To the folks behind this feature, I would like to send my appreciation.

And to Doctor Joel Estanislao for taking some great photos of me. As a tourist traveling with a camera, rarely do I have really nice photos of myself.

The beauty of the Chateaux lies in many stories almost forgotten. In the tv series, Versailles, someone whispered that because it was impossible to close the palace for the film shooting, the scouted for the next best venue and ended up filming in this Chateaux.

I have to search more stories about the people that built this and those that lived here. The immense stories and the tragedies shadowing the happy times that lay hidden behind its thick walls.

The other stories lie in the YouTube documentary attached. Lest not forget the visuals, the experiences and the lessons.

Photo taken from the terrace. A view that was once admired by kings and nobles. There’s more to this property that I obviously missed.
From inside the Chateaux. Awesome, isn’t it?
How they did their accents inside the Chateaux.
They were true masters back in the day. A study of texture and the proportion here done just right.
The balance and composition were never too little nor too much for me.
The facade….imagine this being built before the Palace of Versailles was expanded to what we now know it to be. A study of clean symmetry.
The rear side of the Chateaux is just as magnificent as the facade of the main entrance.

Looking forward to 60. Meanwhile, here is “May Kwento Ako” series ... ( in Filipino means ‘I have a story’ ). This Blog was created as a journal of my discoveries. Hopefully, in my old age, i will be able to go back to these and be glad that i did what i did.
