Paris Rouge XLIV - L' escalier mécanique


I am not a huge fan of the Centre Pompidou, but I'll have to admit, I fell in love with that red escalator at night!

This is probably the best shot I have ever seen of Centre Pompidou... great angle and lines, mostly monochrome with a fabulous pop of rouge!

Excellent! I am not a fan of the modern style but you have made me appreciate this gorgeous escalator!

Far from my fave Paris building either—except for this one colorful element, and you definitely "got" it, V!

Wow! At first when I looked at the photo I thought it was some type of roller coaster! This is really cool!

It's certainly appealing!
God bless you!

I guess every city, even Paris, has it's "modern" fopaws!!! Red is definitely your color V!!! Well done!!!

I love the building, but the "art" leaves a lot to be desired.

Is that really an escalator with those severe angles? Have you ever ridden on it? How nice of them to have painted it red!

Not a fan of modern art. But I have ridden the escalator to the roof top restaurant with an out-door terrace. A great lunch spot with a beautiful view of the city. I understand you can no longer do this without a fee? Love the red Virginia!
