one fine bâtiment

As I was rushing from my new office to the métro, I caught sight of a gorgeous flower box on someone’s balcon.  As my eyes moved across the rest of the façade, I was a bit in awe.  This ‘average’ apartment bâtiment (building), constructed in 1911, has gorgeous ornamentation and statues embellishing many of the balconies throughout.  Take a look:

looking up…

the balcony that drew my attention

Close-up: an angry god to the left…

…and a pensive one to the right

the two goddesses hanging out

goddess in a half-shell?

and her companion

the building entrance

a close-up of the pediment


I wouldn’t mind looking out my window and seeing this everyday, would you?

À bientôt,
