She has many sisters here in Belgrade; this was for sure a popular style.
Nice piece of art work. Genie, your eyes must must always be on the move exploring the scene thoroughly for something worth photograph.
Isn't she so serene and I love the pretty roses under chin - Thanks for looking up.
My sense is that she doesn't see us at all; she is looking way above us, "over-looking" us "mere mortals."An interesting, through troubling, picture.
Isn't Paris just beautiful?! Sigh..!xo
She looks like she knows what's going on...
Very lovely ~ and so pristine. She makes a beautiful photo, Genie.
On a cold, gloomy day like today,she is a breath of spring ... the roses in her hair and scarf ... and the dreamy look in her eyes as if she's thinking of her young man. Lovely photo, Genie.
I think she's very lucky. She gets to hang out at post Paris apartement for eternity! :)V
Such detail! I'd be smiling too if I were in Paris!
Ya, always look up. It's all happening there.
Brilliant shot, I love the reflections and the detail, this so charming detail, the sculpture on the wall is fascinating!Léia
I have one over my building door but she's much less detailed than this beauty!
Perfect, Genie. I love rich architectural embellishments like this one. Gorgeous.
Ah yes... there are so many details in Paris, if you are just willing to look for them!
Bibi -- I love seeing details like this on buildings... you are fortunateAndy -- Yes, but I am always amazed at the ones that "got away" or that I thought about later... I have dreams about themDianne -- She also looks so "clean" and not soiled by the atmosphere and birdsMiss Sadie -- There is a wistful look in her eyes... Perhaps she is gazing at a friend across the street or remembering better daysKristin -- I took several photos of this building and loved this shot for the lace-edged Roman shades in the window.Kris -- She does look wise and knowingShell -- You noticed the "pristine" also... It is difficult to maintain buildings in this mannerMarie -- Wouldn't you love to know the story behind her... Whose model she was, whose daughter, mother, wife...Virginia -- Lucky indeed! How lucky to have that apartment window and to glance at her every dayTammy -- I smile just thinking about it and feel a little wistful as wellBirdman -- Looking up but aware of looking down so that you do not step in something you would rather not...Léia -- The reflections do keep it from appearing to be a dark hole... So glad that you like this one, mon amie.Cynthia -- Well I am envious that you have one... I guess that I could put one over my door but it would look out of context and pretty silly -- have you posted a photo?Jack -- Merci, mon ami... This one is rich in detailHalcyon -- In some places you see them every few steps and in others you must really hunt
On my former blog , I had a label "stone faces" , to show such statues;I like them very much, they are discreet but often very beautyful!
Malyss -- Merci! I'm off to look at your "stone faces"
She looks like a French friend of mine. Thanks for looking high (and low) to bring us the beauties of Paris, Genie!
reminds me of the venetian mask i have hanging over my desk -- a stoic and watchful presence.......lovely image!
Indeed they do. It's always a good idea to look up :)
I like those figures on buildings. This one has a sweet smile indeed. Beautifully made with details.
Magnificent details! Wonderful shot, Genie!
Alexa -- Well, your French friend should say that it is her... It could be a relative... Merci, I will continue to look both high and low, and under/over and around - hah!Amanda -- How cool... That reminds me that I have a clay mask I made from my face and it sits on a ledge near my desk... Thankfully, the eyes are closed -- MerciLoree -- For many of them, "up" is too far up to get a great photo... This lady was quite photogenicbiebkriebels -- I would much prefer her on my building, but some of those gargoyles are interestingEG Wow -- Merci, my friend
Wow! So beautiful and so very neat!Thanks for sharing, Genie;o)***Bisous et à bientôt****
Art is just everywhere there! I love all the details.
Cildemer -- Merci, mon amie.Randy -- The art itself is visual overload at times... we could make a book on just the faces on buildings...
Streetwalking? In Paris? You?
You have eyes for beautiful details!Thanks for sharing!:)
You have a lovely blog! I'm your new follower since I found you over at Beatrice Banks' blog today.
It's difficult to tell if that is hair on her forehead, or wrinkles.
