I would title the photo, "Wonderful windows" - I love the architectural style and colors!

Jack said...

You live in such a pretty city, Ciel. The blue window and shutters of the foreground house are nice, but the brick and iron embellishments and curved corner in the background building are really good.

De mieux an mieux tes prises de vue, ici des lignes ton regard est une merveille, composition aussi tu as bien travaillé.

Country song:

I Got The Thursday Morning Blues

I got the Thursday morning blues
Looking in the window
Of the house there on the corner
We once lived together...

I wondered what went on now
Behind those blue, blue shutters
And whether he was kind
And loves you like I used to
Before I lost my mind
To my old friend
Jack Daniels...

And do you ever think of me
When you look out the windows
Framed by blue, blue shutters
On a blue Thursday morning?

And do you see reflected the
Man who still adores you
Standing on the corner
Beyond the blue framed windows...?

(Repeat the last four lines with steel guitar weeping and then fade...)

Okay, I did my part. Now you write the music!

A hard assignment, since, at best, all we know about Versailles is the RER station and the palace. So, um,

Blue Vue

Boxes, Cylinders and Rain

Toto, I Don't Think We're In Kansas Any More

Or, in a play on some old American real estate advertising, If You Lived Here You'd Be Home By Now.

That is really beautiful!

Halcyon said...

I like the looks of the building.

Thérèse said...

Respect des lignes et des couleurs.

Olivier said...

une belle perspective et un beau choix d'angle pour faire cette photo

T. Becque said...

I hope this doesn't sound bad, but that building is just cute! Kind of short looking and prettily decorated.

"carie" - you've reminded me that I forgot to make my dentist appointment :(

I love the eyebrows above the windows. MB

Thirtytwo degrees said...

A lesson in geometry as I like the juxtaposition of the rectangular windows with blue shutters to the towering circular building at the left. The contrast is lovely! Due to the photographer of course.

Framed in blue....

ALAIN said...

Volets bleus, volets blancs.

"Les gens du nord,
ont sur leurs volets
le bleu
qu'ils n'ont pas chez eux..."
ou
"Pour rêver de Bretagne, refermer les volets.."..

Cezar and Léia said...

It's beautiful, I love this composition and the window color is so romantic!

Woody said...

"piano keys" from the outstanding brickwork above the windows.

VP said...

I am not so good at this... I like that round corner of a building, with the blue shutters in foreground.

J. Evan Kreider said...

"Allez les Bleus!"

Magpie said...

Somehow it reminds me of the bow of a ship...not sure why with all those gorgeous windows. The color in the brickwork is beautiful.

Loree said...

I loveit, I love it. Sooooo beautiful.

Clueless in Boston said...

Clever girl asking your readers to come up with a title. Sometimes photo captions are so difficult and other times they just pop into your brain and onto the keyboard. I guess I would simply title this "Windows." When in doubt, go with the mundane and try not to be too clever.

I do like the yellow and blue colors.

Luzia said...

Ich bekomme immer große Lust nach Frankreich zu fahren, wenn ich Deine schönen Bilder sehe:-)) Und im Sommer werde ich das auch endlich mal wieder tun. Liebe Grüße von Luzia.

Stephanie said...

I love how the building curves around the corner like that. How nice it must be on the inside, too!

Becky said...

I love the colours in this picture.

James Mark said...

Cracking street shot, Grommit! Ditto to all the above: this is so satisfying.

JM said...

Very well composed. Lovely spot.

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Another exceptional shot, Ciel with your wonderful use of color.

Francisca said...

I'd be insane to try to top Jacob... or Bob... But I'd sure enjoy a walk in this area.

EG Wow said...

Gorgeous!

Kaori said...

Ahhh! I love this! The architecture and the pastel colors are simply gorgeous!
