Rue Saint Paul - fenêtre ouverte



Rue Saint-Paul


What does a simple window adorned with the vestiges of daily living
reveal about those who live within?

Such a functional window!

Hello Genie:
Somehow or other, to us the open window which you show here is so typical of many European cities, something certainly which is never quite to be found in London in the same kind of way. What is so reassuring about it is that life, possibly quite simply, is lived and maybe not so very different from how it always has been.

Everyday life is not always glamorous.

The mundane, the excitement; the ugly, the beautiful; the ordinary and the extraordinary.

Somehow, that is very inviting. It is as if they said , "this is my world and you are welcome to see it and be in it."

I love open windows, we always have our windows open in this country.

Why is it that Paris windows are always so much more intriguing no matter what can be espied?

It looks to me like they use every available millimeter of space in their apartment.

Kris said...

I haven't a clue but I love the color of the fabric in the window! :) LOL

I once hung my jeans out the window to dry.

I always take photos of open windows like this...

Airing their clothes and linens is a custom in most parts of Europe. Cuts down on laundry. Having a bit of green...in their only possible bit of sunshine is sweet.

I can't imagine airing out my linens in NYC—they'd probably come back in covered with a layer of soot!

How charming!

Mary said...

It suggests a sense of down to earthiness, or practicality, but loveliness in its own way. I love this photo!

Lovely little window.

I do love the open windows and wish that the humidity where I live would permit such. We have no need of steam rooms and saunas.

This appears to be a family home as I note the holiday decals on the windows.

Thank you for your kind comments today.

Bises,
Genie
