Shadow Shot Sunday

Wandering through the Louvre, you'll find
way more than just paintings and
sculpture—there's a vast collection of objects,
furnishings, even jewelry that belonged
to various important personages.  I neglected
to note whose flatware this was . . . 

but I can tell you that this coffee grinder
belonged to Madame de Pompadour 

(though I kind of doubt she
ground her own coffee, don't you?).

[To see more Sunday Shadows, go here.]


  1. Wow. Those are so much more elegant than what I use to eat with.

    Pompadour and coffee, whether she had her own private barista or not, just seem to go together like, I don’t know, Grace and Land?

  2. Oooh that is kind of sinister but a great shadow shot!


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
