Paris rouge - Macéo

 
 
 
Macéo
 
 
 
This restaurant has a quiet back entrance
framed in red with cherubs on either side of the doorway. 
 
 
Perhaps a little worse for wear,
the sculptures still make a dramatic presence
on the quiet street behind Palais Royal.

It is the wonderful little details in Paris (that ca be easily overlooked) which make this city so special. Warm regards

To continue Elizabeth's thought ... And it is your exquisite eye for detail that makes your photos so special and lets us experience beautiful Paris!

Hello Genie:

We love this cherub, damaged or otherwise [indeed, we should call it 'distressed'], and it looks so striking against the red. We think we could find a place for it in the dining room!!

It's a worn but welcoming cherub!

Joe said...

I wonder whether it would be possible to do a little loving restoration to this watchful cherub.

Randy said...

Not something you would see around here. Very nice.

Alexa said...

Love the way you zoomed in on this, Genie!

It is quite charming, Genie. Nothing wrong with a little wear. Indeed, I have a bit of wear on me, too . . .
