Wednesday Doorway: garage

A garage door near Récollets garden. Today on Artsy Versailles: tables, chairs and the promise of a baguette sandwich.
-------------------------------------
Près du jardin des Récollets. Aujourd'hui sur Artsy Versailles : des tables, des chaises et peut-être un sandwich.

such interesting textures in this, ciel.

Paulie said...

Definitely, a good use of space.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Intriguing...looks like the house and the garage could use a little work. Does it have a garage door opener?

I really like the photo; funky and artsy!

Bob Crowe said...

I like the rough textures, broken-up planes and subtle color. Going cubist?

Halcyon said...

I like this one!

Jack said...

Ciel, I regret to inform you that today someone posted a photo on VDP of a beaten up garage door and wall that we KNOW could not be from Versailles. I understand that Versailles has an ordinance requiring that garage doors be either polished brass or gold-plated.

I love the colors and lack of color. Great shot!

Oooh, I like this!

Yes, I was "painting" with the light from the moon. It's common to use another light source such as small torch light and move that, but I thought I'd try the moon and move the camera (needless to say I got quite dizzy after numerous attempts, that's why I had the somewhat mutilated looking heart shape I ended up with) :}

Oh Jack he is quite funny. but I understand what he is saying. This doesn't look like any doorway you have priviously posted. LOL MB

Dave said...

A good contrast with your usual pictures. its interesting to see whats at the rear of the beautiful buildings you have there.

"Je t'attendrai à la porte du garage
Tu paraîtras dans ta superbe auto
Il fera nuit mais avec l'éclairage
On pourra voir jusqu'au flanc du coteau
Nous partirons sur la route de Narbonne
Toute la nuit le moteur vrombira
Et nous verrons les tours de Carcassonne
Se profiler à l'horizon de Barbeira
Le lendemain toutes ces randonnées
Nous conduiront peut-être à Montauban
Et pour finir cette belle journée,
Nous irons nous asseoir sur un banc" Charles Trenet

Michel Vaillant chante aussi sous sa douche cette chanson que nous rappelle Olivier ; mais tu es trop jeune pour avoir lu Michel Vaillant et puis comme tu es une fille les voitures de course ne t'intéressent pas...
Tu nous montres aujourd'hui la face cachée, celle des escaliers de service et des communs, mais avoir un garage à Versailles pour sa mini est un lukse comme d'avoir un cabanon à Belleville pour son vélo.

This looks more Livorno than Versailles...

Thérèse said...

Bleu tradition. Cela change des portes d'entrée.

une porte qui ne fait pastrès Versailles

Woody said...

Industrial settings are among my favorites and this is great! The bright, new sign pops against the background. I like this a bunch!!

SRQ said...

The other side of Versailles? I really want to see what's behind that garage door.

Sharon Van Lieu said...

What a charming door. I like this very much, Ciel.

This is so different from the posts you usually do about Versailles! :)

Malyss said...

L'arrière du décor, pour une fois..

Loree said...

I don't know why but that garage door reminded me of my own country.

Becky said...

Ooh, I like this shot. Reminds me of one I recently posted of some doors at the bottom of a grain elevator. Less colourful than this, however...

Alain Alexandre said...

c'et très pratique cette endroit pour être isoler, un coin insolite qui demande une bonne restauration.

Francisca said...

VP is right! :- [That contraption in my last post is a radio/TV antennae on a rooftop. Also, I'm informed that Romania has Euro 19 billion of EU funds available that they have NOT yet tapped into, but I don't grasp why not.]
