I like this doorway, looks almost like a cellar door.

Jacob said...

Are there wee people living in St. Louis neighborhood? Gremlins, perhaps? Trolls?

Or maybe it's used for storage. Of wee people. :-)

There must be something interesting behind that door Ciel, there are so many strong looking bolts on it. Hmmm! now I'm curious.

Woody said...

Made for a duck or duck before entering? Well locked, must be some goodies inside.

They did a bunch of construction on the local trains and added a small building that has three or four locks on the door and I've been meaning to photograph them, thanks for he motivation :-)

Randy said...

I wonder what's hiding behind that door. I love it!

Kay L. Davies said...

Very tiny, and apparently very secure. The locks, however, are on the outside!

Tiny may be but securely fastened!!!

Jack said...

Oh, come on! This CAN'T be in elegant Versailles. I wasn't born yesterday . . .

Bob Crowe said...

So just how high is the doorway? Could 193 cm me fit through?

The locks looks a lot stronger than the door itself.

Elle est jolie! :)

I guess there are leprechauns working there! :)
Great capture, it's very interesting and I like the different size in the parts of this door.

Petite porte, mais avec quels secrets derrière pour qu'il y ait autant de cadenas?..

Cergie said...

Une porte de cave sans doute, attention à la tête !
Cela me rappelle l'époque où j'emmenais ma fille en maternelle à Bourg la Reine, il y avait une petite porte dans la grande pour que seuls les enfants puissent entrer, c'était très bien, cela faisait un peu chatière...

VP said...

Strange, what can lie behind this door?

You bring us the luxurious doors of Versailles and now you have found this forgotten door, carefully guarded... perhaps there is a mystery

Bises,

@ Regina: it probably is.
@ Bob: NO!

Suzanne said...

Ciel,
I just caught up with your last four or five posts, all wonderful. I love the red circle sculpture.

Cergie said...

Tu ne te serais pas cogné la tête ?
Aurais tu dégringolé les marches sur le coccyx ?
As tu vidé les bouteilles ?
Repos-repos-repos c'est ce qu'il y a de mieux sûrement pour ce que tu as...

Thérèse said...

Des petites portes bien attirantes et celle-ci ne fait pas exception.

Photohunter said...

Ich lach mich kaputt :), wozu sind die Schlösser gut ??? Man könnte an diese Tür glaube ich noch einige Schlösser mehr dran machen und es würde nichts an der Sicherheit ändern. Die Tür ist echt lustig anzusehen :)
Liebe Grüße

Magpie said...

It looks very well secured though. I wonder what small delights wait on the other side of these doors?

Dina said...

Petiote you say in French?
The simple little doors can be as intriguing as the grand ones.

T. Becque said...

Love it! :)

Clueless in Boston said...

Now that looks like quite a well used doorway.

JM said...

Cool find, Ciel!

People were so much shorter before. I like the shabby chic look of white on white.
