La Cour



La cour?


Oui, la petite cour...

This was a public area inside a small passageway, a little courtyard with a single boutique. There were residences above with open windows, windowboxes and CDs used to frighten away the pigeons (hah!)

C'est une cour plus petite. Mais interresant. Qu'avez-vous acheté dans la boutique?

Great shot, Genie! I can see this as a terrific spot for a photo shoot with models!

Very small courtyard I see. Funny with the fallen C.

I like the black and white Genie it gives that air of emptiness.

Meanwhile I'm having a frustration time, I post my today photo as there seems to be a problem with blogger. Ah well, eventually I hope.

Best wishes

Je pense que les lettres de COUR sont idéales pour servir d'aéroport aux pigeons :-)
Mais les pigeons font aussi partie de Paris... :-)

I like Richard's sense of humor!

Catching up on blogging this morning and what a delight to scroll through your last few posts. Can't decide which is my favorite, bleu or les macarons! One photo really does tell a story. Amazing!

This was such a quaint little courtyard. I loved the old water faucet and how it contrasted with the bright, shiny, modern letters. It looks wonderful in B&W!

the letters look somewhat too clean bright and shiny for this little cour; and yet again, because it is Paris, it works ! it definitely works !

Alexa said...

Don't you just love to step into a little courtyard and discover an artful surprise like this? Good find, Genie!
(I'm guessing the CDs were not an effective pigeon deterrent?

Starman said...

I wonder if the bought the letters at that little shop in the 17e?

Loree said...

That is very interesting. What a wonderful little place for a shop.

What an interesting photo. This is my first visit to your blog, so I've taken some time to browse and familiarize myself with what you do. I'm so glad I did that. You've created a wonderful spot for your readers to visit and I really enjoyed the time I've spent here. I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

Well, it is interesting, but I would far rather have seen them turn it into a garden.
