These beautiful doors are just stunning...works of art. We just don't have much of that kind of thing here...well, the most expensive homes have beautiful doors, but it's not the same!

Makes me bleu to think about it!

Oh, how cool! The balcony in an arch, with a beautiful detail on the door and the railing. That is a LARGE door - can accomadate a set of horses with a fancy carriage?

Interessant cette fenetre et mini balcon a l'emplacement d'une ancienne porte. Jolis details.
Merci pour ta reponse.

Beautiful and so typically French. If I didn't know better I'd think this was in Paris -:)

Bob Crowe said...

The colors of the Argentine flag, which have been in my eyes a lot lately. But no one could mistake this for anything but French.

Paulie said...

Gorgeous setup there and definitely made more beautiful by the blue.

Olivier said...

une rue orange, une fenêtre bleue, un beau patchwork de couleurs ;o) et le syndic ne dit rien.....

Loree said...

Gorgeous architecture.

Malyss said...

Une fenêtre dans une porte..ça en dit long sur la taille de la porte, et j'aimerais bien voir l'architecture intérieure de l'endroit..

Beautiful! Those giant doorways with a mezzanine window are one of my favorite subjects, but I can't remember one of this size in blue.
The ones I know are usually kept the color of natural wood.

I really do like the details in this picture and the blue sets it off nicely.

Une fenetre grande et une porte pour les petites.
C'est magnifique!
J'aimais ce photo et le coloré de détails la ba.

Very, very beautiful and unusual. Are those windows behind the iron rail?. It must be a beautiful view from the inside as well.

"Bleu avec une fenêtre" ce pourrait être un titre de roman ou de film > après ton affiche, la bande annonce est attendue. Que se passe-t-il donc là haut ? J'imagine l'environnement rue de l'Orangerie car j'habite tout près de l'av de l'Orangerie à Cergy. Je visualise la scène ayant visité un appart traversant, comme on dit, et donc tout en longueur au dessus d'un préau. Maintenant il faudrait le scénario. Tu t'y colles ?

The blur really accentuates the beauty of the building.

A doorway with a balcony. Love the blue doors. there seem to be many blue doors where you live. Is that significant?

About the azalea---It had such tiny flowers I thought Azalea but it could be a Species Rhododendren because they bloom very early. MB

This is very attractive. I like the shape, the colour, the ironwork...why, I like it all!

«Louis» stops by almost daily, but he particularly likes to see what you have in store on Wednesday for your doorway series...

Do love this, Ciel! Your perspective and composition are just right for the light contrasts in this fabulous doorway.

Halcyon said...

Beautiful! It also looks nice against the blue sky.

On ne trouve guère de renseignements sur la Guyane, la pub n'est guère au point. Chutes Voltaire cela vient de la crique qui s'appelle ainsi et la découverte des chutes au delà est toute récente et leur classement date de l'an 2000 !

N'oublions pas toutefois que c'est un département français et que ces chutes dépendent de la sous préfecture de St Laurent du Maroni qui en est à 73 kms de piste et de layon !
Pourquoi le vieux broussard alors ? Et il ya tant encore à explorer et de sites à découvrir.

Wonderful! Lovely colors, light and angle!

Per Stromsjo said...

A door with a view!

Catherine said...

D'où l'expression : "La terre est bleue comme une Orange" Paul Eluard.

Gunn said...

Wonderful.... and BLUE! :-)

Tammie Lee said...

now this is a doorway that makes me curious about what is on the other side! Beautiful.

JM said...

This is so unusual! It even has a railing! Fantastic!

tapirgal said...

More blue doors. It can't be a coincidence, can it? I love the angle.

Does it count as two doors? The door in the archway has a little door in the archway above...

Another blue door, you could do a series. I like the angle and composition to catch the light and show off the window above the door.
