In the 17th Century mirrors were one of expensive luxury items that people could own so it was only natural that King Louis XIV would decorate an entire hallway of his luxury palace with seventeen of them.
Hall of Mirrors (Versailles, France)
Similar to some other photos I’ve posted here over the past few weeks this is a composite of five or six pictures that I actually overlayed on top of one another in order to mask the people out of the foreground. I wasn’t patient enough to get the middle of the hallway in the distance clear. I’m not sure I would have been able to stand there long enough until I got shoved away by the security guards patrolling the halls and keeping traffic flowing.
