Fête Nationale - the Law Courts


Yesterday, we saw members of the legal profession about to enter the cathedral. Dressed in red, they'd just walked down this beautiful staircase of the Palais de Justice, followed by those you see above - in black.

Red and black, robes flowing, moving fast, animated. It was theatrical. dramatic and so impressive.

Is there a difference between those in red and those in black?

I'd love to get a closer look at the upper windows — they look etched in the bigger image. I really love your buildings!

Lawyers are definitely failed actors. It is very am/dram. Veautiful setting though.
