Grand Entrances in Paris

We’ve spent a few days in Paris for our holiday in October of 2023. We explored the different arrondissements of Paris, while wandering alleys and main avenues. Here are some doors that I was able to capture.

Ornate gilded gate of the Paris Palais de Justice with the steeple of the Sainte-Chapelle in the background.

Some elegant and regal doors

This one may have seen better days but traces of elegance can still be seen.

    You’ve definitely gone for the doors of the richer classes today. Fabulous.

    These are lovely, Theresa. I love metal gates and the ones you captured are amazing.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Dan. Paris is the place for doors.

        We get so many doors from France. It’s like it’s in a race with Italy for doors.

        1. Teresa says:

          I agree. So happy to see them in both countries.

  9. Very grand! Was it a fish eye lens you used on the blue door? Nice effect.

    1. Teresa says:

      Nope, but I think I used the wide angle lens of my phone camera. Thanks, happy that you liked it Rebecca.

    So much beauty. I like the ones that were once grand but now have a faded beauty.

    1. Teresa says:

      Yes, love that one too!
