Photography by Ira Gardner | Versaille Gate

Garden Gate, Versaille Palace 2013

I had spent a week in Paris and only had one more day before flying back to the United States.  I love Paris so it was hard to take the time to travel south to Versaille, especially on a winter day when the Gardens wouldn't be in bloom.  We decided to go ahead and go and it turned out to be one of my favorite experiences from the whole trip.  There were hardly any people there and I wandered around quietly, managing to get lost several times.
