Paris and I ~ 'Open Or Closed Case'

iPhone Photo Chronicles
~ Open Or Closed Case ~

Open Or Closed Case, originally uploaded by Paris Set Me Free.

Some buildings just seem to have been built to be boring, while others were awaited by another fate.

Doors, many many doors, amongst other things like windows, walls and floors, go to make up this towering 13th arrondissement monstrosity in the foreground.

A door, on the other hand, a gigantic door opening onto some distant raspberry horizon seems to be the raison d'ĂȘtre of the functionally similar structure on the left.

I wonder if those living in the nearest building are envious of their neighbours, living in the second, at the gateway to the hereafter, or if it's the other way round, with residents of the painted pillar wishing they had as inspiring a view as those opposite, whilst also quite sick of being stared at and photographed all the time.

Down here closer to earth we are either happier or less happy than they are, depending on your point of view, and your feelings about the hereafter. And whether you think the door is waiting to be opened... or closed.
