Amidst the gilt and grandeur of the famed Palace of Versailles, these simple patterns of lines and light caught my attention. The massive 2,300 room chateau is a protected UNESCO World Heritage site for its cultural significance and was a highlight of our trip to Paris, France. For another perspective on the enormity of the structure, consider that there are some 2,152 more windows in addition to this one.

Featured Photo: Barbary Babe with Macaque Mom (Gibraltar; Europe)

With Africa (Morocco) in view to the south and Spain within walking distance to the east, tiny Gibraltar is a unique microcosmic experience. This British territory is famed for its Barbary Macaques (often referred to as Barbary Apes), tail-less monkeys with origins in North Africa. Legend has it that coveted Gibraltar will remain under British rule as long as the macaques remain. We spotted a few moms with babies as we explored the Rock. This pair makes a very sweet picture from a safe distance, but the mother would be ferociously protective if approached —think “soccer mom” on steroids with a great throwing arm and plenty of teeth. Pretty scary, huh?

One could almost mistake this guy for yard art. A pink flamingo wanna be, maybe? But, moments later his stationary state paid off with a mouthful of fish.
