Wednesday Doorway: rue Neuve Notre Dame

There are many blue doorways in Versailles... Yet only few of them have a blue Mini parked right opposite!
-----------------------
Les portes sont souvent bleues à Versailles... mais c'est rare de trouver une Mini assortie garée juste en face!

It's not fair, I have been looking for something like this for months. Ever thought of cheating with the car of a friend, but I found no matching colors... Brava!

Timing is everything! It's too bad there wasn't a woman walking by in a blue dress, too!

Oh very neat--blue on blue.

BTW--the girls cleaned up after themselves---well as much as teenagers do. MB

If its the house owners car I wonder if they chose the colour to match.

Dina said...

It must be nice to see a lot of blue doorways around town. Very pretty. I love the reflection in the mini - and the color!

Antjas said...

Are you standing on your tiptoes to take this picture or are minis really that small.

Super bien vu et très graphique avec la courbe du toit ouvrant rapellant celle de la porte; de plus le bleu paraît chaud / le gris des murs
La porte de notre maison est bleue... C'est intéressant ce que dit Dina !
Nous avons aussi un bambou à gauche en sortant, droite en entrant ; cela porte bonheur (au Vietnam) le contraire porte malheur. Mais cette partie du comment est hors-sujet...

Interesting to think of all the other 'blue' thinks that might have been in the photo;blue dress, blue sky, etc.

Why so many blue doors in Versailles? I guess because many people like blue? I have never paid attention, but I doubt there are many blue ones in East Gwillimbury.

Cute! We don't get many blue doorways or blue Minis around here. I could let you pose my blue Beetle though, although it's a much darker blue.

Tres reussi, un coup de genie! To be at the right place at the right moment...

Very clever shot, Ciel!

bonne idée le reflet sur la voiture

@ Antjas: it is that low and small! It's a 'mini' after all!

@ EG: good question, I'm not sure. Blue was a symbol of the French monarchy though.

@ Cergie : te voilà de retour chez toi, bien protégée !

Well seen and well done!!

How fantastic...a blue doorway reflected onto a matching blue mini!

Hola Ciel de Quimper,

Je suis tes posts de trés prés, bonne inspiration.

Very nicely captured. I wonder why all the blue doorways. Is blue the traditional color in France?
