A very elegant men's loo doorway. The potted palm is a nice touch. Adds elegance.
Cheers.

My how times have changed---not the men of course!!!!

I like the fish walls in the previous post.

Dina said...

Ha! Great contrast you found!
Each one is nice and appropriate to its place.

Tricia said...

Now that's a beautiful entrance, even if it's to a bathroom - WoW! Very grand!

joo said...

New is interesting but I prefer the old one. What about women's?

Hilda said...

I like them both! For very different reasons, obviously. If it weren't for the sign though, I would never have thought the first one was a comfort room (for men or ladies). The details around the doorway are gorgeous!

Jarart said...

This is another good post for the theme 'change'.

j'aime bien le dessin de la porte pour les toilettes des hommes ;o)

What a unique idea! I love the contrast between two very different-and-yet-the-same things!

These are absolutely wonderful, JM.

Leif Hagen said...

Fancy doorway! Looks like it's been there a long time based on how worn down the marble steps are!
Funny GUY photo design!

Gunn White said...

They are both unique, creative and pretty! I hope the same goes for places for women..... (?)

The entrance is very beautiful: I like
decorate top and light and the contrast between the two photos!
Thanks!

Jacob said...

What a terrific post! The first is rather incredible...more like a side entrance to a church or castle. I find the second a delightful and comic rendering of all different kinds of men! Funky and fun!

Mirela said...

If the toilette for women looks similar, I'm surprised any woman ever gets out of it :-D. Fantastic!

Joan Elizabeth said...

What great approach to show us the contrast ... either one in their own right was an interesting shot ... made all the more interesting by comparison.

VP said...

What a creative combination of old and new, and about what theme! Great post and very good images!

Tinsie said...

This is very interesting :-)

Now that's the place to go when you have to go.

Sharon said...

Both are distinctly beautiful,but I must confess, I really like the one from the cultural center.

VERY nice! Happy New year JM!

Anya said...

Very special
next time for woman ;-)

Andreea said...

Wow. The first one looks very elegant but I like the second one more, it's very inventive.

Wolynski said...

Now that's an elegant men's room on top. The bottom one is very funny, but I'd be confused.

Rob and Mandy said...

I also prefer the old toilet.I suppose there are na ladies powder room in a men's monastery.

The male icons making up one giant figure is quite clever!
