avec un beau reflet du ciel du vendredi (deux themes pour le prix d'une photo), assez impressionnante cette porte

It's amazing that every week you have another incredible door to show us. This is beautiful.

That is a beautiful doorway.

I like that I can see inside somewhat, it looks perfect for a lady like gathering!

VP said...

A quite normal door in such an elegant framing with the plus of a peek inside and some reflections!

Une porte fermée qui laisse entrer la lumière et les nuages, et emporte le regard vers une autre porte, qui à son tour...

Quelle forme a-t-il ce belvédère I wonder ? Pentagonale, hexagonale, octoganale, décagonale ?
J'ai eu une illumination subite suite à ton passage / le jardin temporaire. Une petite famille de Nouvelle Zélande va passer quelques temps chez nous. Of course il nous faudra les emmener à Versailles, indeed, je veux dire !

I like the big panes of glass so that the door is more like a window. Is this building made or stone or made of concrete blocks?

A beautiful door with a great reflection.
I cannot sleep and am up already. Sigh!
I do like the concert. MB

Just another spectacular door at the palace.

Tracy said...

There are no handles on the outside. If they close it while you are out can you still open it to get back in?

A superb doorway with a bonus reflection!

An impressive entrance probably reserved for the wealthy at one time.

Pretty door to what looks like a beautiful interior.

@ EG: I'm not sure they had invented concrete yet...

Love the domed ceiling, and the frescoes must be stunning all around.

WOnderful reflection!

Francisca said...

Is it the way you took the photo, Ciel, or is that a reaaaally tall door? Beautiful frame.

Paulie said...

A door like that certainly is a welcoming site! Not just an entrance. . .
