Wednesday Doorway: la librairie du château

This week's doorway is the bookshop at the palace which happens to be where I went for my quick lunchtime errand last week.

Voici l'endroit où le me rendis faire une course la semaine dernière.

I remember this place ..... I've been in there. The area was crawling with people . . but I remember still. What a neat thing for me to see . . . while I'm back in my ordinary space here in Houston. Quick errand during lunch, huh? yours is the first place I check each day ... this is so fun for me!

Great place to go at lunch. My problems is that I don't want to go back to work!

I have a doorway you might enjoy scheduled for Sunday. Not as grand, certainly not as old, but very 'Colonial'.

3 perfect subjects, the adorable green door, the huge column and so impressive sculpture.I imagine it's about some award from a victory after fight.I think it's not about religion.
The stone floor also catch my attention, it's beautiful!

By the way about books...I'm reading "Soie" by Alessandro Baricco, in French.I know, Barrico is not French, but my teacher said the translate is good.
I'm keen on for reading French books, mainly because now I can understand!or I think I can understand! LOL!

Beautiful composition and I love the colour of that door.

Great doors. Glad they were open to give us a peek inside. Between the column, the sculpture and the doorway, this is quite the elegant entry.

OH! The palace has a book shop? Sounds like my kind of place. :)

@ Joy: thank you very much, it seems I can't return the favour!

@ Olivier & Halcyon : oui

@ The guy who thinks I'm stupid: making money on the internet? Duh...

@ MB: I got lucky! Most people were still visiting the palace before stopping at the shop so it was a matter of a few minutes!
