Colourful corner

On my way to the concert on Sunday, these different, warm and almost southern colours caught my eye, at the corner of the avenue de Sceaux and the rue Royale.

En me rendant au concert dimanche, j'ai aimé ces couleurs chaudes, "un peu du Sud" au coin de l'avenue de Sceaux et de la rue Royale.

You're right, again! The colors are not only warm, but they are a bit different - more muted, or the actual color is just slightly more grey? than usual?

Great photo CQ!

Southern colours, I like that! Here, we think of these as Caribbean, so it is 'southern' for me as well. You have a wonderful eye!

Effectivement, un chaleureux petit air niçois.
Comment dit-on Versailles "avé l'asssent" ?

Oui, des tons insolites pour Versailles qui porte plus facilement le kilt que les tongs...!
Devine où je vais cet après-midi? Je ferai quelques photos.

I love all of these kind of colours in buildings and communities. They are all so balancing and soothing to me.

hier et aujourd'hui c'est le jour et la nuit mais les 2 sont très intéressants.
Alice essaie de nous rendre jalouses mais j'irai moi aussi très bientôt dire bonjour à Quimper.
Mais je vaais aussi assez souvent à Carhaix car ma soeur y vit depuis longtemps (ce fut son premier poste et elle y est restée)

Oh how beautiful! Glasgow could do with some more yellows and pinks I think - it would help brighten up the damp days!

C'est vrai que ça fait penser au couleurs du vieux nice.

love the composition! great contrast in the colors.

The colors are nice. Mostly here, where I live, homes are painted white and the trim boards another color. I don't think we have any homes or buildings in the colors you show.

I did like your post yesterday too. That is one fine looking structure.
