Doorway to heaven?


Today is September 1st and like on the 1st of each month it's a City daily photo blog theme day. And the theme of today is... Doorways. There are plenty of nice doorways in Paris, of course, but I chose this one which is the artists entrance to... The Moulin Rouge. Much less appealing than the real entrance but much more original (And sooooooooo Parisian Wako!).

42 Daily Photo sites are participating in this theme today. Please use the links to below to visit them. Due to time zone differences and other factors, the theme photo may not be displayed until later if you are viewing early in the day.

  8. Interesting "back" entrance. The showgirls can even have a Quick burger before going onstage by the looks of the sign nearby. Wouldn't be good for their figures though I guess!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I thought the door to heaven was on a cloud, with little angels flying by in the mist and a white-bearded old man holding a key. It seems that is only a simple brown door next to a burger house. I wonder how the doorman looks like.

    Greetings from Athens to all of you.

  10. Very Paris I would think. Thanks Eric

  11. he he he . . .pandering to Wako, are you! Thanks for this inside look. Is this a door someone from the general public might see, or must one have special permission to be in that area? Thanks Eric,

  15. Michael : I'm surprised you made no comment about the text on the Quick sign : "Nous c'est le goût", in relation with the artists of Le Moulin Rouge. I'm sure you might think about something spicy… Unless you've decided lately to avoid "skuds" and turn politically correct !
    ;o)

  16. Cool doorway Eric! And I love the design of the iron grill too :)

  22. RATS! No room for "battery" comments here! LOL! Ahhh Eric, you just know me too well..and we haven't even MET! ;-)

    This door is perfect...looks so French! Can I start missing Paris again too?

    Oh, by the way, I have a door on my DP too....I didn't get my "I-wanna-join-TOO!" link in on time...in the big link list thingy...and it's all HAM'S FAULT! Naaaaaaah, just joshin! I think I need to replace the batteries in my secretary...she's slacking in her job to keep me blog/forum-updated! Have an awesome day everyone!(=

  23. LOL gg...no, I'm never politically correct, but sometimes I say "cool" too much! I hadn't noticed the text, but you sure did!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the dark wood and fancy work over the window of the door! Is that iron work, Eric?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love this blog. The conversations are almost as much fun as the photos! But after reading this whole discussion, I have to wonder if the photographer is discretely making his own editorial comment on the debate by featuring the street sign: Boulevard de Cliche (oops, Clichy).

    Total digression: a lovely Canadian family (two daughters, 8, 11), are looking for a cheap, clean hotel in October. In Paris proper. Loaded with character. Near a cafe.

    Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks Eric. I see now that it's an exterior door. From the lighting I thought it was indoors. I just noticed the street sign. I hadn't noticed the name on the street sign until Barbscoot's comment. I wonder. . .?! ;^)
    (Barb- you might check out renting someone's apartment, as well as checking hotels. You might find just what you want at a more affordable price and a few more ammenities for the kids.)

    Eric, this theme put me in mind to request something: if you get over to the Musee Rodin sometime, could you give us your take on "The Gates of Hell"? Thanks!

  34. All schools, all colleges, have two great functions: to confer, and to cover, valuable knowledge. The theological knowledge which they keep quiet about cannot justly be regarded as less valuable than that which they reveal. That is, when a manservant is buying a basket of strawberries it can profit him to know that the substructure half of it is rotten.
