Église Saint-Aignan de Chartres

Église Saint-Aignan de Chartres

This church, established in 400 AD, 
sits almost unnoticed in a ville known for its great cathedral.  
A bit neglected, it is majestic in its own way, 
filled with colors of turquoise, coral, and gold.

bon dimanche

Gros bisous à toi ma chère Génie.

She is beautiful. There is so much emotion in the frame and sculpture, the shape of her head, the tilt of the neck. Beautiful.

So beautiful, Genie! Reminds me a bit of the lovely little church on Mont St. Michel that has to live in the shadow of the abbey. Bon dimanche, ma chère.

I love the movement in the sculpture. Terrific.

les statues de cette époque sont magnifiques dans les mouvements donnés aux vêtements et les postures des personnages.
