Photo Friday: Grandeur
Day 036 – August 27, 2011
So with all those photographic arrows in my metaphorical quiver, it should come as absolutely no surprise I would select a mirror for this week’s theme.
This picture comes from a Saturday tour I took with a Spanish langauge immersion course into the center of Lima. In addition to looking at the Palacio de Gobierno through gates and viewing a variety of cathedrals, our group toured the Municipal Palace, which houses the office of the mayor of Lima.
The mirror pictured above hangs on the wall in a large ballroom-esque room that probably serves as a staging ground for press conferences, waltzes, or really cool volleyball games. Yes, chandeliers are included.
Considering this (below) is the front of the building, it should also come as no surprise that the mirror looks as gilded as it does.
