Petit Bureau - Place Colette



In Place Colette, the very building of Comédie française, is this small office on le premier étage. The office is not be too petite and the view is stunning as the office worker can see the entrance to Métro Palais Royal Musée du Louvre and probably watch the Parisians on the terrasse of Le Nemours. Can you imagine working in an office with the Buren Columns and the fountains of Pol Bury just down the stairs?


Holly, Peter, and I walked by twice and she was steadily at work both times. She is a better worker than I would be!

Je comprends que ce bureau, aussi bien placé, te fasse rêver, Genie! En effet, on doit s'y sentir bien.
Bon début de semaine!

What a gorgeous place to work! She's a better worker than I would be too Genie; if I had to work in Paris I'd always find an excuse to do a coffee run..

It's a very interesting photo, Genie. I wonder what it feels like to have (potentially) the whole world watching you while you work? I mean, she really is right out in the open, there.

I say she's playing Tetris.

Malyss said...

Maybe she was blogging and you could not see?..:)
I would not like to work in a place where everyone can look at me!

Dianne said...

Lovely shot Genie - I think she's an attention-to-detail Parisienne.
No time for window gazing.

Tiago Braga said...

great job!

Virginia said...

I'd get fired for taking pictures during working hours from up there!

Cezar and Léia said...

Amazing angle in this shot!
She looks so concentrated!
I also love the detail in stain.
Very cool!

I love the way you notice all the intriguing amd lovely details with your camera. For me, just the idea of a "Place Colette" is enticing.

Lovely! I'm jealous!

biebkriebels said...

That is a great place to do your office-work. Well captured photo!

TheChieftess said...

It seems like one would never get used to the idyllic setting, but I'm sure it's just like anywhere; after a week or two, it's same old, same old.

Shelley Smart said...

Intriguing shot! Like others, I would not want to work right in front of a very public window! I'd be gazing out that window a lot!

Loree said...

Yes she certainly is. I don't have much of a view out of my office window and yet, I still waste time looking out of it.

Viennese Girl Vreni said...

I couldn´t work there, I would constantly look out of the window ;-)

To all: Thank you for all of your kind comments... I am in Baltimore but will catch up to comment on your blogs in a day or two.

Bisous,
Genie

Halcyon said...

Elle doit travailler tres dur ! Au moins elle a une bonne vue. :)

Amanda said...

this beats the corner office by a long shot!

martinealison said...

Il faut que le travail soit bien passionnant pour résister à ne pas flâner derrière les carreaux!...
Gros bisous
