Let me add this postcard from Paris to this week's Friday Theme.

Below, you can read more about this landmark of Paris:

Les Invalides in Paris, France, is a complex of buildings in the city's 7th arrondissement containing museums and monuments, all relating to the military history of France, as well as a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans, the building's original purpose. The buildings house the Musée de l'Armée, the military museum of the Army of France, the Musée des Plans-Reliefs, and the Musée d'Histoire Contemporaine, as well as the burial site for some of France's war heroes.

Dear Kristof Szekely!
Wonderful church.
Amazing point of view.
Nice light and colors.
Good shot.

Hi Kristof

Nice image of this building, not an easy one to take due to the golden dome, I tried ones of this building but it was a very bright day and the details of the dome are completly over exposed.
The builing contrasts well with the sky.

Regards Derek

Hi Kristof!

Hi Kristof

Les Invalides is really beautiful place in Paris
well done and good frame

a beautiful architecture, inviting enough to the city of romance.

a commendable work, Kristof, well done!


Hi Kristof,
Belle carte postale representative de la ville de Paris .Différent de la tour Eiffel .J'aime bien ta photo et l'architecture du bâtiment qui contraste parfaitement avec le ciel sombre . Beau détails et belle présentation .

Hi Kristof. So simple, yet so "defuined" photo from the city I love! :-) Perhaps you should just align the horison a little bit. It is nothing special, but I think the photo would be even more interesting.

great capture my friend

Hi Kristof
a nice postcard, well framed. an impressive Parisian monument. good capture of the gilded dome and perfect clarity of the building.
I would have cropped the lower part though, it is a bit of a distraction.

Ah La belle France.
It offers so much history to the traveler.
The dome of the invalids is spectacular, the architecture offers a lot of details and you have captured that well.
Very nice card.

Cute stuff Kristof, a fine contribution to the theme of course , it's a landmark of Paris and you present it very nicely in this Postcard-type picture , i like how the building is brought out majesticly against the darker grey sky , the light that hits it gives it a peculiar glow , caught at the right moment my friend,
TFS, thanks for the notes too ,

Bonjour Kristof,
Ah les Invalides... j'aime beaucoup admirer la perspective que l'on a de ce bâtiment depuis l'autre rive de la Seine...
Très belle présentation avec ce ciel menaçant, les dorures ressortent parfaitement et offrent une superbe luminosité.
Bonne journée


beaut. shot of les Invalides with perfect backdrop and sharp light just before a storm. The gold of the Dome comes out very well.
