Château de Fontainebleau, France. January 2015.
Although not as glittering and well-kempt as the more famous Palace of Versailles, the Château de Fontainebleau has a somewhat haunting sort of charm. It might be because there are fewer people milling about, which actually allows you to stick around long enough to appreciate the rooms and everything, or maybe the semi shabby-chic state of the palace lends to it that sort of feeling of having come from some bygone era.
It’s kind of a photographer’s (or Instagrammer’s) dream, because look at all these tourist-free shots.
