Not so much a photo...

...as an impression. I took this inside the cathedral at Chartres several years ago. I don't remember what camera I was using back then, but I obviously didn't get the subject in sharp focus.


The photo below is more focused, but it doesn't show, I realize after looking at both closely, the same window as the impressionistic shot above. Still...


Random notes: today is our second wedding anniversary. Walt and I were married in Albany NY on May 10, 2012, after nearly 30 years of living together as a couple. So far, our marriage seems to be legal in France too. Both the notaire and the people at the Sécurité Sociale (health insurance) office have agreed to that.

And we got our new kitchen stove yesterday. We'll be testing it out this weekend, making Veau aux olives today and roasting a Guinea fowl (une pintade) on the rotisserie tomorrow.

Happy Anniversary, Ken and Walt! I do feel as though you were really married when you decided to be a couple, many more than two years ago......Have a delightful and joyful celebration!

Happy anniversary, of course!
So, this stove DOES have a rotisserie... but you had to give up something, as I recall... was it the one electric bruleur?
