Paris Rouge LXXX - Bibliothèque nationale de France Richelieu


Merci Peter,  for steering me into this lovely place my first afternoon in Paris.  By this time I was in a jet lag haze, but the sight of this beautiful stairway with the red wall, and later the reading room perked me right up.

 5 rue Vivienne, 75002 Paris

There are always many things left undone after a visit to Paris. On our last visit we stayed a block away from this, but I never ventured inside. Thankfully there is always the promise of next time. And till then I have this image to tide me over.

Wow—you're up to LXXX? I think that the planes and curves and angles in this composition are just fantastique, V! And that spot of red is the cherry on top, so to speak.
