Lovely!!! It looks so inviting.

When we went to Paris, we knew nothing! I mean nothing! So, we were delighted to see how so many buildings are built around an inner area or courtyard, and I took photos like this, too.

Great shot...great memories. Thanks!

Tres reussie cette photo avec ouverture sur l'arriere cour.

Paula said...

It looks intriguing, I'm wondering what it opens onto.

Bob Crowe said...

A bit of mystery here to draw in viewers. What lies behind?

Handsome doorway . . . don't forget your November 1 theme day!

It looks as if an Angel protects one as they enter onto this street. Nice...

Lee Spangler said...

Such privacy and seclusion. What goes on behind closed doors, stays behind closed doors!

like the view your photo provides of the distance environment! Nice cherub above the doorway also!

Looking inside raises more questions than answers.

Hi C,

Very pretty. Nice composition. I would like to see more from the inside-:)

Nice shot! I like the composition, and the door with beautiful details is very pretty.

Ce pourrait être faubourg St Antoine et ce serait beaucoup moins classe (des ateliers ou quincailleries spécialisées par exemple)
Un ancien hôtel avec tout pour loger la tribu ? Les écuries, les communs et l'habitation des maîtres ?
(Ma photo d'aujourd'hui a des airs de celle-ci tu verras, mais c'est tout à fait différent : du nouveau qui fait vieux. Les différentes hauteurs d'étages alors qu'il y a des normes. Tu sauras lire la façade)

Lovely composition!

@ all: this is just a building with apartments in it, probably built in the mid to late 18th century. Many houses in cities in France have inner courtyards, simply because a long time ago, that's where the horses would have been kept.

I love peeking behind doors and gates. You never know what you will find. Sweet little cherub in the pediment.

I love the blue.It is a nice color.

I like seeing behind the door into the inner courtyard. It's a very nice doorway too. I hope you are saving up a really grand doorway for theme day.
