Rue Frochot, Pigalle, Paris. We were wandering the evening streets just south of Boulevard de Clichy, having had a very pleasant meal in Montmartre. We meandered off the main drag at Place Pigalle, and came across this rather amazing Art Deco stained glass window on the corner of Rue Victor Massé. Apparently this window, depicting a wave, appeared briefly in the 2006 film "Paris, Je t'aime", and is part of a small theatre (Théatre en Rond), which now is closed. I'm glad it was lit as we passed...

What a wonderful find Will. It could almost be by Gustav Klimt with all those beautiful colours and I would love to have it as part of my window. Lucky for you the light was on. Great photography and thank you FS.

So you visited the "gay Paris"!
Nice warm hues of the backlighted Art Deco window, and a sense of wave movement.

C'est vraiment un vitrail magnifique. Il y a une étonnante variété de jaunes et de verts. C'est une grande chance en effet qu'il fut éclairé et la luminosité de la photo est vraiment bien dosée.

A beautiful picture!
I love the management of light, all those colors and, of course, composition!
TFS - congrats,

Lovely lighting and of course the art deco design is so attractive. I like the close up and I think you did really well with the available light.
Thanks for sharing, best regards

I take note of this place to try a visit when I will go back to Paris. Good subject, and good work on the exposure to catch the variety of tones on the glasses.

A great light behind this stained glass shows this typical art deco ornament. An original topic with a good quality.
