Another magnificent photo.
Actually, I never stopped blogging, but now that I'm in Europe...again...I'll post an entry a couple times a week.

. . . where even the gas meters are elegant—and of course you noticed.

"Gas Company" never looked so interesting as in Paris -- great colors and detail! Safe travels today.

Classy ... and a good catch!

Harriet said...

Love the details that go into all things French. No plain old squares or rectangles when something can be made elegant!

Cette vieille plaque rouillée ne sert plus, malheureusement ! Virginia, bravo, pour trouver ce que, moi, je ne vois pas!

Virginia said...

Claudine,
Maintenant il faut voir!!

Starman,
I'll catch up with your European galavanting now that I'm back home!

Merci for your nice comments. I thought this was just too rusty and wonderful to pass up.

Ah! Paris is so so stylish, even the Gas company. At first sight before I looked properly I mistook this plaque
for a house or apartment number, quite possibly because I've just read a neat little book called,
'The Doorbells of Florence' by
Andrew Losowsky. An enchanting short-story book,whimsical and quirky .... of course!
Someone who knows me well bought it for me last Christmas.

Very nice picture. It is always interesting to see how a photo can draw attention to the unknown, and funny daily details.

Of course as you're standing there taking this photo, the Parisians are passing by saying to themselves, "tourists will take a photo of anything."

But I'm with everyone else. Even the gas meters are gorgeous in Paris.
