#if i can take a moment to have a minor quibble with the p&p miniseries #it’s that jennifer ehle #is far too pretty #she shines in a way that eclipses jane’s beauty #i adore the casting of the movie in that respect #rosamund pike is classically beautiful #in a fight-the-trojan-wars-over-me way #she’s the woman who catches your eye when you enter a room #and holds your attention#whereas keira knightly #is gorgeous in a more specific way #slight of figure #with striking eyes and features #there are things i love about this movie #and this aspect of the casting is one of them#pride and prejudice
I walk up to the edge and look down. Wind whips through my clothes, making the fabric snap. The building I’m on forms one side of a square with three other buildings. In the center of the square is a huge hole in the concrete. I can’t see what’s at the bottom of it.
It’s hard to believe that I couldn’t see, you were always right beside me.

Chambre De Commerce
"The Chamber de Commerce alias Cdc is an absolutely fabulous Stock Exchange location, located in a busy city and surrounded by ugly concrete buildings. Only the four relative narrow passages are giving a small glimpse of what the inside of this beautiful queen has to shown. The current building is a reconstruction from 1872. The original building dates from 1531, this late Gothic styled stock market has been burned twice [1583 and 1858]. The CdC is built on top of an existing street intersection with originally no roof, only four covered streets, the still existing and impressive galleries. Around 1853 the square and galleries where covered with a dome modeled on the Crystal Palace in London." Jan Stel
