The steps and terrace are inviting... the dark corner in the background, not so much ;-) Who knows what could be lurking there? Great shot Genie. Love the black and white. Veronique
i like this b&w picture.
Did you manage to break in somehow? :-)
And did you?...
Like the combination of the two balustrades
Love the B&W and the different balustrades and wrought iron detail you have captured. This is a great way to remind us that there are interesting photographic subjects everywhere you look! I hope you are home safe & sound!
And what, pray tell, was going on beneath the footbridge?
Magnificent! I totally want to find this gem!
A grey but generous welcome. Lovely textures in monochrome.HugsValeryBarcelona Daily Photo
And you didn't march right up those stairs???V
i love ornate wrought iron.......it's so romantic.what did you find at the top of the stairs?
Well, they're certainly inviting me, I know!! I, too, love the ornate wrought iron. Terrific, inviting capture as always, Genie! Hope your week is off to a great start, mon amie!HugsSylvia
Genie,This is gorgeous photo. I love the metal railing. Gorgeous! If I were in Paris, I would spend hours just walking around taking pictures. Sigh...Bet you are getting excited about your trip!Kris
ça me donne envie d'aller! :)bisesLéia
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the euro is on the way up again.
I hope you entered dear Genie so you can tell us what you saw.
The French do everything so pretty - even stairs!
Hi ThereI am really impressed by your website.I actually added it to my vlog list.i would be honoured if you could do the same for me.Thanks and till my next commenthttp://architectureofeurope.blogspot.com/
I like very much your black and white picture.Kiss
Elegant, Genie. I think we need to act like we belong. Take my arm, Genie, we are going in . . .
So decorative and beautiful. Love it in B&W.
This was a "locked" and gated entrance to a large home just outside of Parc de Monceau. The stairs led to a door, perhaps the back door of the mansion? The stone balustrade is an elevated "patio" although I am not certain of the French term other than terasse.I often enter if there is a crack in the barrier, but this would have taken a climb over the top. Most of the gates have vertical bars and nothing to help one climb. (just kidding as I do not scale high gates with or without toe-holds!)Welcome architecture, kate, and annabelle! Thanks to all for your comments and appreciation of the little secrets here. Just arrived home... two days and gone again.Bises,Genie
Une bien belle rampe...Une invitation certaine...gros bisous
Parfait en noir et blanc. :)Love the details of the ironwork.
Makes me wonder what's at the top.
