I'm not one for playing chess, but I do have a bit of a fascination with
checkerboard patterns. I seem to find it each time I'm in France.
Such as the picture above, which was taken in Paris at the historic Galerie Véro-Dodat.
And then this one at Versailles. Marie Antoinette's Grand Trianon.
Marie Antoinette's Petit Trianon.
The staircase at Musée Rodin in Paris.
Inside the queen's hamlet at Versailles.
Château de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley, France.
Ladurée's Alice in Wonderland tea party at the Printemps.
Would you care for a checkerboard floor in your house?
