Wednesday Doorway: classique près de la cathédrale

Another blue doorway near the cathedral. Yes, there are a great many blue doorways in this city.
-------------------------------
Oui, beaucoup de portails sont bleus !

I really like this, Ciel. Wonderful color. The building itself is tinged with blue - why is that? And why would there be blue doorways near the cathedral?

People are blue over the sins they've committed?

Sorry, I just couldn't resist, and I know it's a dumb comment.

Hope you're having a good week!

Wait! Who lives at No. 21? Aha! Ze Bishop?

bfarr said...

So what does the 'no' sticker on the door indicate? No more blue?

James said...

You are fortunate to have so many interesting doorways.

Leif Hagen said...

Love the blue doorway! I wouldn't mind that ornate balcony either! Bravo, Cieldequimper!

Is "near the cathedral" significant in the blue color scheme?

Olivier said...

et la nuit, cela devient un bleu fluorescent pour que son propriétaire la reconnaisse ;o)) Autour de la porte, le cadre de la maison est tres beau

Every city has its own architectural heritage but, geez, we got nothing like this. How elegant. My city was founded by French explorers and named after le roi sant but conditions were, uh, rustic for quite a while afterward.

I love blue doors! Probably because blue and brown together are my favoirite colors.

Ah! «Louis» looks forward to your Wednesday door series. Another good one!

hahahaha!!!! The word verification for this comment is "pookedip"! Oh, could we have fun with that 'word'!

Although this door is charming, I don't have much to say after the bison. It seems Versailles has mostly blue doors. . . .

It is a great blue door. It is so blue it faded more blue on everything else. I like it. MB

I love these huge portals, which often come in bright colors.

You are a great explorer of your home city. You see so much that is invisible to others. You are truly an excellent guide.

Très classique français! C'est vrai, existe-t-il un "bleu Versailles"?..Ici, nous avons le "bleu Klein" (du nom du peintre qui l'a trouvé)

Cergie said...

Oui mais il y a bleu et bleu ; celui-ci est particulièrement marine... Ca flashe !
J'aime bien la délicatesse du balcon en dentelle ainsi que le mur et l'encadrement de porte en tissu damassé...

Simple et beau.

I like blue, it's really nice!

Love the blue doors--the entire doorway in fact. The doors are very large almost as if when open a carriage could drive through. Is there a courtyard inside?

Clueless in Boston said...

Beautiful double doors. I wonder why there are so many blue doors?

Brabourne Farm said...

What's behind this gorgeous door? Leigh

Per Stromsjo said...

Yes, what about the sticker? Order must prevail! Pray tell, what is strictly prohibited? Leaving one's dirty bike parked here? :)

Gunn said...

It is !Interesting and has style! Nice shot.

Danke für Dein nettes Kommentar in meinem Blog!
Türen ziehen mich auch magisch an und blau gehört zu meinen Lieblingsfarben.
Blaue Türen ...hm, nein, kann mich nicht erinnern, sie bei uns gesehen zu haben.
Vielleicht mal hellblau.
Oder als gartentor.
Aber als Haustüre finde ich es sehr beeindruckend.
Ich hoffe, Du verstehst deutsch, weil Du es so gut schreibst, dachte ich, kann ich es wagen, hier deutsch zu kommentieren...=0))

Schönen Tag...lG..von Luna

I love the wrought iron around the window and the beautiful stone work.
