Do you do a happy dance at department store escalators too, Genie? I'm glad I was sitting down when I looked at these. Escher, indeed!
Shell -- No, as they are not the unexpected treat as in le Métro. However, all of Paris makes me feel like a "happy dance."
See, now I'll have to do a happy dance while singing "meep, meep" the next time I ride an escalator (but in NYC, no one will notice). I also thought of the stairways at Hogworts when I saw these great graphic shots.
Alexa -- The stairways at Hogwarts! Ah, yes! I see the resemblance. Merci!In NYC you are correct that no one would notice - hah!
Great geometry! The top shot is very clever!
Who ate my comment?? GRRRRRRRWhat I THINK I said was that you were pretty brave to risk the "Bon Marché Police" that don't cater to folks photographing their fancy schmancy store! :)
JM -- The square designs on the sides and bottoms of the escalators easily provided a visual geometric exercise. Merci!V -- Yes, I was snapping away (quickly). I don't think they mind if you get the store's architecture (same with Galeries Lafayette) but they really don't want you photographing the merchandise and/or the displays (like the hats)!
Oh my goodness - that staircase almost made me feel dizzy. Great shots.
Loree -- Because they are in the center of the store, they almost seem to float. With all the geometrics a close-up look is a bit dizzying (made up word)!
Oh, gorgeous blog! I love this, it's like a virtual trip to Paris, with a little humour thrown in! Happy to find you, happy to be your newest follower! XX!
la première nous met la tête à l'envers excellent
Bergson -- Merci beaucoup à toi!Shari -- So glad you found me (and I found you)! What I lack in photo skills I can often compensate with humor.
Love these B&W images of this stair - fantastic!
