Many of the buildings in Paris are built around an interior courtyard which is either reserved for potted plants or parking. The doors or portes that close off these secret spaces became my obsession during the trip. Some look like they are painted and polished once a day while others look as though they haven't been touched since the day they were installed. Some are intricately carved and highly decorated but even the simplest of doors look elegant and interesting due to their beautiful colors. The blues, greens and greys are just heavenly! J'adore!
