Rue Paul Bert - la porte verte


Rue Paul Bert


Just a few steps from Bistrot Paul Bert 
is this striking green doorway of great height.  
It is complemented by the architectural details, 
the bright red flowers in the window box, 
and a reflection of the building just opposite.


It was a beautiful spot to meet a friend for déjeuner.



24, rue Paul Bert
75011, Paris

  7. Usually, a door is just a door .... this one is both door and window! Someone must open that window regularly in order to tend to those lovely red geraniums. Lovely capture of such a Parisian sight!

  13. It IS a large entrance. And grand in the beautiful way too. The red and green are very festive for the Christmas holiday, though i know the colors weren't meant for that.. :) Lovely photo.
