La grille rouillée et murée

This gate once allowed entrance into Madame Elisabeth's grounds from Avenue de Paris...

Cette grille permettait de pénétrer dans le domaine de Madame Elisabeth depuis l'avenue de Paris...

Looks like I'm too late to see Madame Elisabeth or her garden.

The major architect in the first photo is the spider who spun that great looking web. Interesting photos.

I agree with TFG, the spider who wove that web was a major architect indeed! Amazing! Great shots for the day as always, Ciel!! Have a great new week!!

There we have ourselves a problem of access that will require sledgehammers.

Such nice old rusty iron and stone work, maybe some day it will be opened again.

RedPat said...

We must find a different way in!

I like the gated doorway.

The top photo looks like something that has been laying deep underwater.

There are lots of little bits of history surrounding you in your town.

I think more than just a key may be required to gain entry here ;-)

I like seeing the closeup and the longer view. I'm a big fan of rust. :)

Lowell said...

What a great find even though the gate doth not appear to be functional at the moment. It is a good reminder that eventually everything rusts away. :)

It's beautiful, mysterious, and a bit sad.
Whenever I see a blocked up old arch here in Israel, I wonder what they were trying to hide.

Lois said...

It is beautiful. I like the shadows too.

Looks pretty closed off these days!

VP said...

I always like details, even better if old and with a history...

Linda said...

It looks mysterious!

Stuart said...

Well, that's one way to keep unwanted visitors out of your garden. Make two ways.

Loree said...

It looks rather sad now. I wonder who used to pass through it in days gone by.

Amazing. I like the close up. It makes for stunning texture.
