I am eternally grateful that these beautiful eyes look at me and aren’t repelled by what they see.

A view of part of the mightily impressive vaulted and domed ceiling of the Cathedral of Saint-Front in Perigueux.
I did my usual trick of lying the camera on the floor pointing upwards, setting the timer and hovering just out of shot to make sure that nobody steps on it. It gives a different perspective and also stops you getting a crick in your neck.

We reach the halfway point of the 52 Week Smartphone Challenge with, thankfully, a reasonably straightforward theme: geometry.

Disused tracks just outside the old railway station in Chabanais.
(I applied an infra-red filter in order to enhance the impact of the vegetation – a polite way of saying weeds).

Cee’s Fun Challenge for this week wants images of a single flower. This was one that emerged from a scattering of mixed wild flowers that we sowed in our garden last year.
