Wednesday Doorway: Tucson, Arizona

Of course not, yet this doorway, seen in Saint-Louis neighbourhood, immediately reminded me of Tucson. Check out why on Convent Avenue in Tucson, Arizona @ Thoughts in Images!
------------------------------
Alors non, évidemment, non. Mais cette porte, ce mur, ces barreaux, les fleurs m'ont fait penser à Convent Avenue à Tucson. Pour savoir de quoi je parle, c'est chez Thoughts in Images que ça se passe.

Very Tuscon indeed. And a nice tribute.

It's perfect! Beautiful and colorful. Thank you for thinking of me. I think you should station yourself outside this wall and photograph those who pass by. We could have a dual, trans-Atlantic post going on :)

I agree with you, I will take my 107 drier heat compared to your humidity!

Tash said...

Very cool with hot colors. Yup, Arizona or Provance or Spain.

Suzanne said...

Really nice composition, I love the blue against the clay walls, definately Arizona like.

Jacob said...

It certainly does have that southwestern patina!

Halcyon said...

The colors are certainly very southwestern-y. Love them.

Woody said...

I though your were going to tell us you had this from a recent trip.

I like your shot a lot, great colors and textures.

Sharon said...

You are so right, this does look like a scene from Tucson Arizona.

Pietro said...

A bright light and warm colors indeed. This image reminds me of Spain.

It looks like the same building on Convent St. Very southwesterny. MB

moi je dirais qu'elle a un cote petit village du sud de la France

VP said...

A very good image but with very strange colors for the Île-de-France, they could really belong in Arizona, for what I know...

Malyss said...

On s'y serait presque cru!ça fait sud, ça c'est sûr!ça doit trancher avec l'environnement versaillais que tu nous montres d'habitude..

je savais que j'allais attirer la Quimpéroise de Versailles...j'ai d'ailleurs pensé à toi quand j'étais à Quimper . Le prochain message est à Penhors...rafraichissant dans ces jours chauds!
Laisse-moi te dire que même si je ne commente pas souvent je viens te visiter et je te décerne un prix de bon goût, de photos très réussies colorées et souvent originales.

J'aime particulièrement le cadrage perspective de cette photo.

This begs the question, What came first, Tucson or Paris?

brattcat said...

Lovely. And I posted a similarly colored wall today here in Vermont. Hmmmm.

JM said...

What a great find! Now you fooled me, Ciel, I thought this was some kind of pic exchange thing! LOL!

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

It looks like a painting. The more one looks at the photo, the more color emerges. Lovely.

Kaori said...

I thought you took a quick trip to Tucson! Pretty wall ;-)

Sharon Van Lieu said...

It does look southwest US except for the green bush. :-)

Very nice, Ciel.

Jacob said...

Hi Ciel! Re your comments: No, I was driving. Don't you have air conditioning? And I think you think like a lawyer. Why is that? ;-)

Jacob said...

My God, Ciel, no one can sleep in that heat!!! Can't you get a window unit?

Diane AZ said...

Indeed, it does resemble Tucson, except maybe for the flowers which would look parched in the desert sun.

Cezar and Léia said...

Very colourful!
God bless you!

Nice try, Ciel - the colors might be Tucson (or equally Provençal), but the door ain't Tucson, never in a 100 years!

tapirgal said...

Perfect, funny, and I love her blog!

EG Wow said...

Tucson is one of my favourite U.S. cities. How nice it has magically been transported to France. :)

Lynette said...

Great photo of a lovely sight on a sunny day.
