Back to blue again with a doorway seen on Avenue de Saint-Cloud.

Ciel, these are beautiful 'blues'.

Now that is a pretty blue. I love the carving.

It's getting late here and when I glanced at the thumbnail I thought it was a beautiful antique laundromat. Someone should make machines that look like this.

Dave-CostaRicaDailyPhoto.com said...

I had the same thought as Bob. On the thumbnails I thought that maybe you and Brattcat had gotten together and both decided to post photos from the laundromat on the same day.

And I thought, holy smokes, in Versailles even the laundromats are over-the-top fancy.

c'est l'été, retour au bleu, c'est normal ;)

gogouci said...

Beautifully intricate and definitely blue.

I love that blue, it seems to pop up in these great details in Versailles and adds so much to the architecture.

I thought the Bodies show in Phoenix was interesting, but not as educational as I was anticipating. I saw it a couple of years ago, and I don't remember any controversy around it like there is now.

C'est porte est sublime, ce n'est pas la couleur locale de Versailles.

Malyss said...

Celle là est splendide! non seulement la couleur mais aussi les decorations, les sculptures, les ferroneries..Une merveille!

VP said...

Love the color and the details of the door. Stupid question: does Avenue de Saint-Cloud in Versailles have anything to do with the Porte de Saint-Cloud in Paris?

B SQUARED said...

Again I say, to be a Blue Paint salesman in Versailles. What a great job.

Suzanne said...

The color is yummy and the ornate wood working is really beautiful.

James Mark said...

Lovely strong picture of some striking doors. Strange how much we like this kind of thing.

Jacob said...

Another gated entryway! So bleu. But a very nice bleu; rather unusual, actually. Touch of grey, perhaps?

Re your comment on Cedar Key: The "time" factor is up to you, but I figure it's always 5 pm somewhere! :-)

Jacob said...

Re your questions: Yes, I think you could find the backpack (or something similar) at Dick's. It's a huge store with a good selection of items for just about every sport.

I had heard of Moliere - was just spoofing you a bit. Well, sort of. I don't know much about him.

Hope you're having a fun day!

I know the is 'The House of Blue Lights' I think Elvis was there. Maybe it had blue doors too. Great shot. MB

tapirgal said...

Of all your many nice doorways, this has to be among my top few. I love this! I'm sure the brilliant, clear color has something to do with it!

Per Stromsjo said...

Classy and yet a bit intimidating. Interesting. What's behind this doorway?

Diane AZ said...

I like the curious carved creatures. :)

@ Per: a building, probably end of 18th century, now condos, at the time the home of one family.

cieldequimper said...

@ VP: Saint Cloud is a former royal city between Paris and Versailles so yes, Avenue de Saint Cloud leads to Saint Cloud as does la porte de Saint Cloud!

Hello!

All the sepia scenes pics were taken from the Mulilteo Ferry going to Whidbey. The first is looking down toward Seattle---well that way anyway. MB

Louis la Vache said...

Your blue doorway portraits are always welcome at Chez la Vache...

;-D

Gunn said...

Just SUPERB!!!:) Beautiful details and color.

JM said...

Beautiful!

jeannette said...

The design of this door is so beautiful -i'm imagining it in other colors -with a door like this, I don't think you can go wrong with any color:)

Clueless in Boston said...

A double dose of beautiful blue doors.

"Tire la chevillette, la bobinette cherra", un commentaire pour occuper les anglophones à la traduction. Même moi, je cherche encore à me représenter la scène mentalement.......Chuttt.
