Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

An Elegant Entrance ........


Hotel Plaza Athenee  ~  Avenue Montaigne
 
Many famous faces have walked through this elegant doorway
with its stylish Hector~Guimard canopy
Rudolf Valentino - Grace Kelly -  Jackie Kennedy
to name but a few
 
.................................... 
 
Over the years I have summoned up the courage
to enter most of Paris's luxurious establishments
but at this doorway I have remained on the out-side
looking in ...... maybe next trip!

The soft focus of the edges really highlight the beautiful doorway.

Hey great, this has been an awesome help to me, I have had some really strange annoyances in my personal life recently and it is funny how certain things can really pick you back up or make you look differently on the horrible things and get working on the other things in life. Anyway thank you a lot.
