Marais - la porte

 
 
le Marais
 
 
 
A door,
old and weathered,
patched and painted and patched again,
massive and imposing.
 
 
It has seen the turning of centuries,
the passing of time,
revolution and rebirth.
 
 
Its name is history...
 
 
 
Une porte
le Marais
75004, Paris

Like the bell form of this door-knocker.

Makes me sort of wonder who all knocked at this door and who answered.

One of my favorite spots! A beautiful find there!

Alexa said...

I hope that if they decide to paint the door, they don't paint over that gorgeous filigree!

It's quite an impressive knocker!

I love Parisian doors, and door knockers.
