Paris Rouge - la Comédie Française


I see some of you with a puzzled look on your face. You're thinking this does not look like the Comédie Française, located at Place Colette.  Well you are correct.  It's undergoing some renovations and has found a new home over the Fountains Pol Bury  between the columns of the Galeries d'Orléans.  How nice of them to paint the temporary doors Paris ROUGE!  As Peter and I headed through the gardens the first day I arrived, I spotted the doors, and noticed this nice man making his way along. I waited.

For more information on the renovation see Peter's Paris Blog here

It must be really extensive works, for it to even have a temporary home elsewhere...
Interesting pic!
God bless you!

Love the contrast of the gates and the renovations. How wonderful that they have tried to "please the eyes" during the repairs.

I love the red, the gold and the blue(?)/grey(?) and white stripes!

What great composition in this image Virginia, the colours and lines and then the man walking casually by at just the right moment. The splash of red is the icing on the cake.
