Rue des Thermopyles - Une porte verte



In photographing the door, I almost missed the three bird houses over the portal.

I hope the inhabitants are safe from the kitty I saw a few paces away!


(I wondered if Veron was related to Lynyrd?)

Une autre porte — en verte. Avec des vignes s'élevant tout autour de lui. Potentially a restful place, but I'm not sure. What is the name on the door?

Hello Genie:
Ah, the intrigue of a door in a wall. Always a fascination.

We too hope that the birds are sufficiently out of reach! Life is fraught with danger!

I think Veron Skinner receives some large parcels with a letter opening that wide. Nice capture Genie.

Doors are always mysteries that are asking to be solved...

I'd have missed them too, unless kitty was circling. A very pretty scene, Genie.

Love the turquoise trellis detail! Lovely photo

Louise said...

I'm glad that you pointed out the pretty little bird houses. I was hoping to see exotic birds in Paris, but mainly saw pigeons and sparrows!

Amanda said...

what a delightful contrast - a green door and a burning gate (thermopyle means burning gate in greek!)

Quand j'étais jeune je travaillais non loin de cette petite rue. Dans certains coins du 14e c'est souvent la campagne, il suffit de pousser quelques portes cochères !
Bien vu Genie

Great photo Genie! I love looking at the doors and entryways of France. They are so beautiful and always painted in the most gorgeous colors!

Nice green door. I thought most of the portes in Paris were blue:)

Alexa said...

Sold! (I wish—but wouldn't you love to see what's behind that green door?)

Good one...know this song?

Danielle, your Micio would have been right at home in this quiet street. I saw many of his kitty-cousins that day.

Amanda, I should have thought to look that up. Thank you for that. I need to see if I can discover more about this street, sequestered and quiet.

Louise, you should head to Buttes Chaumont or to Parc Monceau. I had a nice conversation with a Japanese photographer who was at Monceau to capture the interesting birds. (who knew?)

I am always intrigued by a closed door and I love the color on this one!

Bises,
Genie

Bibi, I think that it is a classic and probably played by Dick Clark back in the day...

Bises,
