Rue de Vaugirard - la porte


Rue de Vaugirard


This is not your typical blue door in Paris, but a deep azure taken from the Mediterranean palette.  The architectural design is crisp with fine detail but I do not know the architect.


The red scooter was a bonus.

zoom-zoom!

Very imposing doors Genie. I wonder what treasures would be revealed should they open up before us. All together ....... open sesame .....!!

Hello Genie:
Rather than a Parisian scene, this all looks so Italian to us, particularly the red scooter.

As always, one is left wondering what exactly that imposing door conceals....!!

I love the detail over the doorway, along with the colors. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

That is a gorgeous door and the scooter parked outside it perfects the photo. Keep well Diane

A red Vespa is a nice substitute to a Ferrari! :-)

I love that particular shade of blue - a hint of sea green in it. Just another magic Monday!

The scooter is a definite bonus—and a perfect complement!

You know that I´m obsessed with the blue doors in Paris. This door has a rather unusual colour and is very simple but I love it.
