I needed a distraction today. I made my first trip to a Paris beauty salon a couple of days ago and I'm not totally comfortable with the end result. It's very lovely...it's also different and I don't do well with changes when it comes to my hair. The difference in languages did have something to do with it!
Instead of dwelling on my hair...I took a walk...and I looked at my world. The first thing I noticed was how different every door is on my walk about the neighborhood. Here is a fraction of what I saw today. These doors are the common entrances for apartment buildings. There is a touchpad on the side where the residents input their codes for access.
Elegant and Simple
Fruit baskets flank the arched entry...do they represent something...like pineapples are a symbol of welcome? I do see food baskets in the reliefs of building entrances fairly often.
Then I realized there were faces looking at me.
This god-like face was on the corners of a building.
Here's the first of two doors that were close to each other...I think they are sisters.
Nice to see the other sister has a little color.
And this corner amazed me because I walk by it every day...it's on the end of our apartment building and I never noticed! It is so pretty!
There will be many more photos of doors to come...one always wonders what is behind a door but sometimes one should look at the door and see what is around it.
