Les fenêtres étranges

Saturday VP in Livorno posted a lone street lamp with a salmon background. I dug into my fairly recent photos and here's the Versailles echo to his post: the house with strange windows at Notre-Dame covered market. Michelin Man is on Artsy Versailles today.
----------------------------
Samedi VP a posté un lampadaire esseulé devant une maison couleur saumonée à Livourne. J'ai fait un petit tour de mes photos récentes et voici l'écho versaillais à son billet, au marché Notre-Dame. Bibendum est sur Artsy Versailles aujourd'hui.

Une maison Halloweenette!

What a fun international connection between your blog postings today! Bravo!

Bob Crowe said...

I don't think they allow salmon-colored buildings anywhere in this country except Seattle and South Florida.

Randy said...

The sunlight was perfect and made for a wonderful photograph.

Jack said...

I loved the colors on VP's post and now I love the same salmon color on yours. Nice!

Woody said...

How cool is that? 1100km apart. Interesting contrast in the shot, but eerily similar.

Paulie said...

I love the subtle orange, the windows and the beautiful lamp posts.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

I dunno, but this is pretty "artsy" too. Nice colors! Love the lamps!

SRQ said...

Yet another cool shot you've captured that I never would have thought to take. Bravo!

Halcyon said...

The glass almost looks like it's broken. Interesting.

Olivier said...

c'est surtout la couleur du bâtiment qui est spéciale. A moins que tu es saturée la photo

Dave said...

Old farm houses were often this colour. Whats strange about the windows?

Bergson said...

les carreaux sont fêlés (comme les oeufs de Fernand)

@ Olivier : non pas saturé mais soleil du soir...

I didn't change the colours here but it was a lovely evening glow. The salmon is much lighter on a dreary day.

Kaori said...

I was just asking myself if I'd seen this somewhere before! Lovely color...and with real windows here ;D

Fenêtres étranges en effet, seulement deux sont dotées de double vue.
Les réverbères sont étranges aussi, on dirait les inquiétants balais de Mickey dans le dessin animé "l’apprenti sorcier".

Tanya said...

i love those lamp posts and that color against them is gorgeous!!

VP said...

I obviously like this connection of strange windows and I quickly linked it back.

Re your question about the spiral staircase on CK: Many homes in Cedar Key are built on stilts. The staircase goes to the actual house which is, tada!, on stilts. But it's an old house and the staircase was an anomaly, being so bright and new.

CK's sea level is 0!

Wonderful pic. Evening light is so wonderful, isn't it.
Twin pics---almost. MB

Livourne-Versailles même combat! qui l'eut crû?!

Cezar and Léia said...

Hey Ciel, I love this idea about Versailles echoes!
The lamps are beautiful!

I love the light on the building. So soft and pretty.

Loree said...

I love the colour of that building. It is gorgeous.

Alain Alexandre said...

très harmonieux cette situation des tons; il y a une ressemblance à des maisons de Saint Petersbourg.

I like the double posting - yours and your friend's. They go together so well! And again - beautiful lamppost.

T. Becque said...

You guys have great street lamps :)

Great composition!

JM said...

I didn't remember this shot or VP's. How cool! Great minds... LOL!
