One of my favorite things to do in Paris is look at the old buildings. I am surprised that so many of them still have their original components -- doors, windows and hardware. The quality and the detail are marvelous.
The sun angle cast too much shadow to make this photo great, but I wanted to show you anyway. The battered wood on the lower door, wood carvings, hardware, metal insert grilles in the windows and the overdoor of limestone all tell a story that I would like to hear.
