While on vacation last week in France I toured Castle Chambourd in the town of Saumer.  The castle itself was stunning, and one of my favorite architectural aspects of it was the twisting, winding staircase that had been built in the center of the castle leading from the ground to the terrace.  It reached a total of eight floors when completely ascended! I took this photograph of the pillar at the bottom which mirrored the twisting of the staircases in the twisting design encircling the pole.  I felt this photo truly epitomizes the theme of twist for this week’s challenge! 🙂

Paris is such a gorgeously constructed city full of buildings that are beautifully designed! I always enjoy viewing the magnificent archways, and shapes found in the structures and buildings of Paris. Each one is unique in structure, design, use of cutouts, and I find them all so magnificent and stately in presence! The materials used to create the ceilings in certain buildings alone is so exquisite and breathtaking! Thinking back to when some of these amazing edifices were created, it’s astounding to see how they have stood the test of time to allow generations of visitors to gaze upon their intricate stained glass windows, stroll through the overwhelmingly sized archways, and admire the beautiful history found around every corner of this historic city of lights!

The churches in Paris with their twisting turrets, carved statues sitting regally, keeping watch over the city are amazing sources of wonderment to me. It seems that this city was built with the intent to capture and entice visitors’ attention through the use of architecturally grand formations. One only has to walk a few steps before being confronted with the city’s splendor personified through each building, which is in itself a work of art I feel! This city is an architectural feast for the eyes!
