Paris ~ pattern, texture, ornament...


I've decided to group my photographs into categories/genres....
today - pattern, texture and ornament :: thinking about bas relief carvings, punched forms, ornate plaster work, vaulted ceilings viewed as a whole, repetition, decoration....
From the top :: doorway 5th arr / jardin des plantes [left bank] / Saint-Sulpice / Mosquée de Paris / Saint-Sulpice / Sainte Chapelle / Bibiliotheque Nationale de France [deck] / Mosquée de Paris / doorway, Marais .
More images tomorrow...and some more words and thoughts on the wonderful trip toward the end of the week :)

I love the garden one, the plaque is so intriguing, do you know what it says and why it is there. Really love it x

Hi everyone..so glad you are enjoying the pics so far :)

Janet...these little markers were all over the alpine garden, and were really small - like 5 or 6 cm across [so this is close-up!] I have seen similar markers here in the UK, but not such nice ones or with such lovely colour as the weathered lead and the yummy punched texts.

I figure it is the latin name for the plant and the common name in French. Will try and figure it out...:)
