Weekend Reflections: porte dans porte

A door is reflected in another door for James' Weekend Reflections. This is the door of the hôtel du Cheval Rouge and the reflected door is of a wine shop. Both belong to a building that once housed the king's outfitters. The hotel I was showing you here.
-----------------------
Cette porte est celle de l'hôtel du Cheval Rouge que je vous montrais ici. La porte qui est reflétée est celle d'un magasin de vins. Toutes deux font partie de ce qui fut la pourvoirie du roi. Les Reflets du Weekend de James, c'est par ici.

A wonderful example of a truly elegant door! And, naturally, a superb reflection! j'adore!

Randy said...

Lovely photo. That doorway is amazing!

Bob Crowe said...

If the shop sold Red Horse wine, I'd probably buy it.

Jack said...

Very nice. I like the greens and white, as well as the angels above each door. So, what does cieldequimper mean? I put it into a translator and it came back as "cieldequimper" in English. I doubt it . . .

Kaori said...

So that's why they have the same sculpture above the door! Love the deep green color of the door :-D

Happy friday!

J'aime bien la mise en abîme.. une porte dans une porte..
ça me rappelle une pochette des Pink Floyd!

VP said...

I like the idea of the reflection of a door within another door.

Woody said...

Great reflection! Wonderful details above the doors.

EG Wow said...

Love the colours and the reflections here.

B SQUARED said...

I'm struck by the detail above the door.

Diane said...

Such brilliant detail - and I love a good wine shop. xxx

Rebecca said...

I had to do a double take. It almost seemed like the door was reflecting itself.

Cezar and Léia said...

Thanks for the option for the "large size view", it's wonderful, the lamps reflections are outstanding!

I almost couldn't tell what was reflection and what wasn't! This is a perfect shot for Weekend Reflections!

Cette image est vraiment amusante ; j'aime beaucoup notamment le fait de voir se refléter de face la même sculpture qui au-dessus du chambranle de celle que tu visais de face : ce fait un effet étrange, comme s'il y avait une distorsion de la perspective dans l'image...

Interesting reflection in your photo! :)

Jack said...

I used my broken French to get sky of Quimper, but I understood Quimper as the pottery and that confused me. Merci beaucoup.

jeannette said...

Such a beautiful shot -the colors make it look intimate!

Bergson said...

deux themes à la fois porte et réflexion

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great and interesting shot. I really like the color of the door and its frame.

Loree said...

Perfect - I really like how you have composed the picture.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Love this little slice of your world. A charming door but I would expect no less from Provence, of course. :-)

Thanks for your visit to my blog.

Ciao,
Gina

Ebie said...

The color of the door and the leaf of the sculpture matches! The reflection is so crisp and clear, perfect capture!

cieldequimper said...

@ Pagan Sphinx: Provence? Wow, now that would be cool!

namaki said...

joli reflet !

Fabien said...

Autant d'invitations à pousser cette porte.

Dina said...

Through the lookingglass . . .
enter!

Hi Ciel,
I like this reflection very much. I was interested by the figure over the door, and then I noticed the reflected figure in the door! This is a very clean, detailed reflection and you captured it well.
