March CDP Theme Day: your favourite part of town

Well... it's the first of yet another month! I don't have a favourite part of town, but truth be told, I really like Saint-Louis neighbourhood where you see this kind of village type scene. Happy Theme Day and happy March! Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
---------------------------------------------
Déjà le premier du mois suivant ! Je n'ai pas vraiment de coin préféré mais j'avoue que j'aime bien le quartier Saint-Louis où il y a une atmosphère de village... Bon mois de mars !

Hi I'm planing to visit France and Versailles sometime in the next year. I would love to meet you and have you show me some of the secrete places around your wonderful village of Versailles.

This looks like a great place to live. I love the wonderful blue color of the doors and windows - and the matching bicycles!

The blue makes is such a lovely scene BUT it is the BENCH that completes it for me!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

This corner manages to look both cozy and elegant. Such a peaceful shade of blue.

Jolie photo avec ce velo assorti au bleu des portes et fenetres. Tres charmant.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

That's almost too perfect, Ciel! It looks like a postcard. A painter would love to work from this photo!

Woody said...

Someone likes blue, how else could you get the bike and house to match color?? The cobblestone sidewalk and the old bench really tell a charming tale. Any idea what that is above and to the right of the window?

Beautiful blues! The bikes just throw this over the top... I love it and know why you chose this scene... I have made a note of Saint Louis neighborhood and hope to get there some day!

Bises,
Genie

Halcyon said...

I can see why you like it! I am hoping spring is on its way.

Leif Hagen said...

Beautiful, blue bikes & boards! Bravo!

T. Becque said...

Simply charming...yet again.

Around the same time the Costner movie came out, another movie came out too with Kurt Russell (Tombstone I think), have you seen that one?

Jack said...

This is wonderful, Ciel. The blue shutters, door and trim are a very subtle blue hue, and finding a pair of blue bikes leaning there was a stroke of good fortune, or of genius, or of both! Nice.

Randy said...

How charming and very romantic looking. I love that the bike color matches the doors.

I love the cobblestone street...makes me think of a mall in Maryland who may have copied this now that I see it...very, very nice neighborhood. I wonder if there are yellow trimmed buildings nearby...

Olivier said...

tu prepares un remake de la bicyclette bleue ;)) j'aime bien cette petite cour

Chuck Pefley said...

Perfect example and I can readily see why you like it! Happy Theme Day, Ciel!

Small City Scenes said...

Very pretty, specially with the nice blue.
I forgot all about the theme day even though I have it marked on my calendar. Oh well--I have no favorite part of Stanwood, I am not down there too often so I will look at this neighborhoor. MB

Cezar and Léia said...

It's a romantic door, really beautiful and I'm in love by so adorable composition shot, very well done!

Je reconnais le pavé, pas de Germain des près non les pavé de saint louis.

VP said...

A lovely place in blue!

Jilly said...

This is absolutely charming and a lovely photograph. It would be my favourite too, I'm sure. We all seem to love the older parts of our beautiful cities.

Bleeding Orange said...

La photo est très belle et donne une impression de sérénité.

Mary Ann said...

Choosing a favorite part of town was surprisingly difficult for many of us at CDP!

The is a beautiful shot. I love how the white wall just above the bike seems to glow with it's own internal light.

raf said...

Lovely image, Ciel! Especially warm, inviting and right for the theme.

SRQ said...

Definitely has the makings of a postcard -- very lovely. The matching blues are terrific. Good eye!

Dave-CostaRicaDailyPhoto.com said...

You illustrate today, as you show the world frequently, that there is much more to Versailles than a palace.

Francisca said...

Ah, so you prefer your places charmingly picture perfect, do you? Can't blame you! :-)

EG Wow said...

A warm and friendly place! I can see why you like it there. :)

Clueless in Boston said...

Very nice old blue doors and matching bicyclette and bench.

Lois said...

So charming! I just love that blue.

Stephanie said...

I love the blue of the walls and bicycle. Very charming with the climbing roses, too!

Beautiful, Ciel! I would have chosen something similar if I haven't the ocean.

SKIZO said...

Wonderful

brattcat said...

Ciel, this feels like such a welcoming spot. You've captured the gentle air of it beautifully.

Buck said...

Oh, what a peaceful spot! I can't wait to see more photos from Saint-Louis!

Regina K said...

The composition of this photo express you sentiments of the neighborhood well, the colors, bench and bike all remind us of a village scene. Well done.

tu as retrouvé ton vélo

Becky said...

Again with the blue!!! I absolutely love this picture, Ciel. I think I will use it as my computer desktop. You inspire me with every new post.
