Porte -- Rue des Capucines

First cousin to the lions at Hôtel de Ville,

You might feel grumpy too if you were trapped on a wall or door, instead of sitting in the open air.

Fun photo, Genie.

Hello Genie:
Now this is something we can rival several times over in Budapest. And many of our lions are smiling, or licking their lips!!

This is Belgium said...

many of these grumpy ones in our neighborhood here in brussels
no impact on our moods, unlike the rain which does not seem to stop this year

I love all the grunge around him! :)

Cezar and Léia said...

Oh, dear lion, that's Paris, why such a grumpy face? Enjoy!
God bless you!

Grumpy or not, he is a handsome guy. He looks more worried than grumpy to me. Having spent four days out in the bush where the lions roam, I can understand why they would be worried. For the wild animals, every day is a life or death experience.

Oh, he does look worried ;)
But what gorgeous work, and the color...beautiful!
A lovely week to you, dear friend..

I love the doors in Paris whether they are blue or not. You can often discover some beautiful details.
