Paris Doorways, October Photos – 9th
Finished last week with a book store doorway, so I’ll start this week with another doorway. I’ve heard this place is quite popular but, although I like these solid wood doors, I thought the doorway here might be a little bit grander. … Or am I missing something?

Well, now I find myself stuck on Parisian doorways. And you really don’t have to go too far. This one is just steps up from my Rue Saint-Julien le Pauvre post last week, which was around the corner from Shakespeare and Company. Perhaps it caught my eye because it was the entrance to the Issac de Laffeman’s 1639 mansion. Isaac de Laffemas, as it turns out, was a poet and playwright. Writer attracting writer; or, more likely, I just found the doorway really interesting.

Since I’ve been stuck on Parisian doorways, I had to take a few steps outside of Paris, well about 20 minutes by RER, to Saint Germain en Laye, for my next one. For about three years I got to pass by this Château de Saint Germain en Laye entrance almost on a daily basis. It was nice to recently visit again. The Château, while not exactly Versailles, but then again for a few centuries older, it is still impressive and worth seeing.

After travelling around and out of Paris, I needed to stop at the bank. Paris can be expensive. I, however, had no success at this bank. Those doors are as heavy to open as they look. And why were people giving me a strange look?

Well, my doorway week started because of a bookstore doorway I posted a couple weeks ago. It, therefore, seemed appropriate to end this week with a bookstore doorway. Shakespeare and Company is a good one as I remember this picture; about to enter the store … back in 1964 when it changed its name to Shakespeare and Company from Le Mistral. Seems like only yesterday, or maybe a few months ago (my last trip to Paris).
