one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
Whilst this ancient street has a new surface, happily nearly everything else is old.
The Old Town
So lovely, and I am glad it remains. I remember streets/places in Paris that were so gorgeously old, and now many have been 'updated' to look old, but it's not the same...
Simply wonderful: I love the scars of the wood, the faded paint, the bended nails, the tilted sign...
nous voila dans un temps passé, c'est superbe
Wow! Does it accept letters from outre-tombe? (sorry Jilly, I don't know how to tranlate that)
Alice, you made me laugh! It translates are 'beyond the grave.'
Hand made !Do you think it will stay long ? This district is going to become sought-after. This kind of authentic doors of the past will disappear replaced by digital lock access......Thanks to immortalize it, Jilly.
These are great. I love the long shot where we get the entire door. Such an enticing door, with the promise of so many tales in its weathered wood. And the close up with bits of string (or paint, maybe) now fully belonging to the sign, and that wisp of cobweb. Wonderful.
I don't know if i would stick my hand in there! HA You know i love old doors!!V
The new fresh street compliments the historic scene of this avenue. this door is marvelous, we can only imagine how many years it has opened and closed.
This is a great series. I love your shots of the old town. The doors are so intriguing. Many mysteries. I was intrigued by stone work above and around #129. I've wondered what the markings meant. Maybe you will feature it in the future.
Marta, I know the one you mean. It dates to 1543 and I will feature that. I have a lot of photos ready of specific numbers of houses and their history.
Lovely detail, Jilly.And yesterday's colourful perspective was nice too. I won't comment on the pavement again :-(((
Boy, it does look old. The lettering looks old as well.
I have stumbled onto your blog and am emjoying it. I will come back and read some of the older posts too. You photograph with a good eye and write with good humor. I love the look of Rue Longue. There must be something interesting behind every door. The paving stones look good. Where I come from they would have rolled it with asphalt. You live in a beautiful place. Be blessed.
