Thursday Doors: More Montpellier

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.

For this week’s Thursday Doors, I have more photos from Montpellier to share.  Though the day we visited was a little gray and a bit chilly, it was an amazing adventure, discovering the nooks and crannies of this city in southern France.

We started at the Place de la Comédie, where the Opéra Comédie theatre, constructd in 1899, stands at the end of the enormous open square. The incredible Trois Graces fountain, sculpted by Etienne Dantoine in 1773, sits in front of the theatre.

Then, after the square, we wandered, admiring the architecture and, of course, the doors.  Here’s a few with more to share next week.

    Non mais vraiment, c’est trop beau pour être vrai.
    The featured shot of the building with all the Juliet Balconies is amazing. It looks like it could be a palace. Plus all these amazing doors! I do believe you’ve moved to door paradise 😉

    1. Hmm … I’m not sure what happened to me this week! =) Je suis désolée !! The architecture and the incredible doors around most every corner is certainly almost too good to be true. I’m having so much fun!

    The doors with the wrought iron faces is so beautiful, and its probably just the light but do you think they have slightly different expressions….?

    1. I’m really sorry for not responding until now. I think this was the week of exams (french language tests). I’m getting too old for tests. =) Now that you mention it, the two doors really do have different expressions!

    Go down any road in a major town in France and pretty much all the doors are worthy of inclusion. Such fertile territory for architectural details.

    Sometimes grey days are a bit better for taking pictures of doors. You certainly got a couple of lovely ones.
