At the bottom of this dead-end is located one of the oldest huge stores in Paris : "La Samaritaine" !
Unfortunately, because the roof was in a sorry plight, this store is closed now and the whole employees were burned out !
This shot, taken this week end shows to you that this wonderfull place is still in the same condition since several years and nothing happens regarding any restoration. . . Until when ?
Sad report!


Au fond de cette impasse se trouve un des plus ancien et grand magasin parisien : "La Samaritaine"!
Hélas, sous prétexte que le toit de la structure était en mauvais état, ce magasin a du être fermé et le personnel fut licencié!
Ce cliché pris ce weekend vous montre que ce superbe magasin est toujours dans le même état et qu'il ne se passe rien quant à la rénovation de celui-ci... jusqu'à quand?
Triste constat!

And thank you very much for your comments on my previous upload:

Beau cadrage qui fait si bin ressortir le coté abandonné de cette pauvre Samar.
Le traitement de l'image met en valeur de superbe facon la facade art nouveau.

I love the lines in this, and your signature strong colors and light/dark contrasts are well at work!

Love the POV, colors, lighting, and commentary. I like the wall with the black and white texture. The clouds in the sky hovering over the building are just right to set the tone of this excellent photo.

In the past we used to say " On trouve tout à la Samaritaine", now we just can say we can find wonderfull photographic expression of the noble old Parisian store. I'm afraid it will be a business building in the future ;-( ...

The apparent balconeys are quite a draw. Too bad it is not being restored but then, with world economy as it is and businesses battling over who gets the most profit, I doubt many businesses will decide to sink big money into non-functioning structures... Love shot of the alley street leading up to it.

Great perspective and composition here. Too bad about the old store. I hope someone takes an interest and does the needed restoration.
