Bonjour! I got this week’s carte postale from a local used-book shop.

Photographer Yvon (Pierre Yves-Petit 1886-1969) made gelatin silver prints into postcards.

I tried to capture the sheen of Yvon’s gelatin silver print postcard of Chambord, one of the Châteaux de la Loire:

The year 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of Chambord.

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!
