Old Door

Another day, another door. Great color, don't you think?

I love that color, and I love old doors, too -- especially the blues and greens, and the older and more rustic/chipped the paint, the better.

What a stunning photo of but one shade of the vibrant palette of southern France... beautifully composed with soft lighting.

Me too! Love it when there's a lot of texture.

Thanks! I've been having fun with my photo editing software.

Mlle Paradis
It is a new banner. Glad you like it!


Chez Loulou said...

You're welcome and thank you. :)

Me too. I might have to repaint our shutters...

A typical Languedoc color, too. One of my favorite things about this region is how colorful it is.

I love that movie!

Thanks and thank you for stopping by to comment.

I love old doors! When I drive through neighboring villages I'm always on the lookout for old wood doors, old painted doors, old rusty doors...

Welcome! I'm enjoying your blog and love your use of color. Inspiring!

You've created a wonderful event. Thank you.

Merci! Glad you like it.

Thank you. I found it pretty irresistible when I was walking by.

So true! I really noticed the difference when we visited the Loire and Normandy last year. The pale colors of the doors and shutters of the Loire were really beautiful too.

Thanks so much!
