Would you like to turn back the clock 100 years 
to attend an elegant ball, just for the evening?

Yeah, me too

Oh, yes! Count me in!!

Joe said...

I'll be there in a jiffy. Just have to dust off my top hat and tails.

Tamera said...

That would be wonderful.

M said...

Absolutely! What an elegant ambiance!

Daryl said...

moi aussi!

Jeanie said...

I love this spot. I can't enter without imagining ball gowns and elegant people celebrating music -- and being seen!

Alexa said...

Not hard for me to populate your wonderful photo in my mind's eye, Genie. I'd be there with bells on—and long white gloves!

Malyss said...

And a charming prince beside me?..
and could I stay longer than midnight?..:o)

Jack said...

This is so pretty, Genie. It is an angle I would shoot.

Dance? A hundred years ago they would not have allowed the likes of me in there. Unless it was to clean up afterward.

I love it there too, and always imagine what it would have been like to attend an opera there (even though I've never been to an opera). It's such a magnificent building that I love to visit- I went twice on my recent trip to Paris, showing different friends about- loved it both times.

I"ll get in there one day.
