Doors Galore

For a while I've been inadvertently collecting Paris doors. Here is a typical Parisian door.

Here is a ... not so typical Parisian door.

The detail of the carving is exquisite.

A small arched door into a cellar in a courtyard of Rue Durantin, Paris 18th.

More red. A door on a river boat on the Seine quite near the Eiffel Tower.

It's all in the details. Welcome.

Here is a typical Parisian door that has seen better days. Marché Saint Ouen.

A lovely arched and shuttered doorway to the Trianon in Les Jardins de Bagatelle.

A rectangular shuttered doorway.

This door by the vineyard in Montmartre always catches my attention because of its unusual proportions. So tall and thin. I also love the faded, blue paintwork, it almost looks patinated.

Here is a neighbouring art deco door.

Another fabulous art deco door on the riverside of the Palais de Tokyo. Gold.

A door to a gallery on rue Gabrielle, Montmartre. Silver.

A door less than 50 metres from the Sacré Coeur.

This photo is less about the door and more about the planting that surrounds it!

And this door is less about the door, and more about the planting within it!

  1. These are fabulous! I would look at more doors anytime you get a chance to photograph more of them. Thanks, Cynthia
